    GH1 hack settings - advice for a newbie please

    At the outset let me stress I am a complete novice when it comes to video shooting but a newly acquired GH1 has got me very interested in improving my knowledge.

    I have downloaded ptools with a view to hacking my GH1 and am slightly overwhelmed by the various options available. To get me started I want the highest quality/frame rate 1080 video setting without causing any stability issues and would be very grateful if somene could give me the basic settings I need to select in ptools to achieve this.

    Sorry if this sounds a stupid request but whilst I am pretty self sufficient when it comes to stills this new video adventure is a bit daunting

    Did you try the Dvxuser forum? There's a lot of information available there. I would suggest finding one of the recommended stable settings. From there, you can begin to tweak if you like.

    Download iPowell's settings and give them a run. They work pretty well, but I need native 24P, so they're not that useful to me. And if you know about the hack, then you know how unreliable 24P can be out in nature and high-detailed shots.

    Its a good idea to start with iPowell's high reliability settings from above thread. You can also look at the following thread for more ideas:

    Thanks guys - followed your advice and now all upgraded.

    I'm especially pleased that the process is reversible so I can't completely mess things up. Really like the fact that you can install different firmware settings on different memory cards
