I love my GH1, especially the video, but its a love hate relationship. Pictures are fantastic but the fixed pattern noise in underexposed areas/shadows just plain sucks. Even when I make sure i expose correctly it will pop up in some small area within the picture. It has become the one main factor that turns a great shot into a not so great shot.
What I'd like to know is does the GF1 or older G1 suffer from this fixed pattern noise also? I am seriously considering getting one of the two just for cleaner pictures because i have already invested in M4/3 glass and it is a heck of alot cheaper than going canon or nikon. I would much rather grain nose than FPNoise. Leaning towards the GF1 for travel size and video. What are your thoughts?
Is there a program that will turn the FPN to grain noise?
