    GH1 shutter sound different to G1 shutter sound?

    Hi

    just bought a GH1 to experiment with video and find that the GH1 has a slightly different shutter sound ... almost like a quick short film advance after the shutter release. I'm just wondering if it may be a sign that its got problems.

    Not sure if its because this is new and my G1 has had over 10K actuations...

    anyone have both and care to offer input?

    I dunno, but I can tell you the every time I get a new GH1 (I've had 3 now) the shutter sounds VERY VERY different. At around 5K actuations (2 or 3 weeks for me) their sounds are more the same. When new the GH1 sounds almost like the shutter is rubbing on sandpaper or something. Shhhhheeek-clik, when older more like she-clik-ik.

    Tess, is there a reason that you have had 3 GH1's?
