I just bought a GH-1. At the moment, I am using it with Canon FD lenses via an adapter. Mode is manual "M."
The only feature I find annoying is the EVF / LCD continually amplifying or "pumping up" dark scenes to absurdly bright levels.
This increases horizontal noise and black lines to distracting levels, no matter what ISO is set. Plus it gives you no idea what your final picture will look like.
I realize that you can press the iris/trash can button and then the display button to go into "shutter speed effect" mode, but this results in a "stuttering" image in low light which is highly distracting. And the moment you even touch the shutter release, the "shutter speed effect" mode ends.
Even my six-year-old Canon Powershot S-1 provides a WYSIWYG view in the EVF in low light.
* Is there any workaround?
* Is there any way of getting into "shutter speed effect" mode with just ONE button -- and keeping it there, even after touching the shutter release?
Thanks for any help. The GH-1 is an astounding camera, but this one "feature" could be a deal-breaker for me.
