First outing with GH 2 and Oly 45/1.8


On a recent trip to the US bought a GH2 at a good price.... sadly the week later they were being pumped out at a even lower price!!!

Anyway, the opportunity came up at the last minute to film a relatives band playing in a small bar. As I had just got the camera, the lens and a Rode VideoMic Pro, thought I would give it a try.

The rode was set up on a small tripod on a table and was plugged into a little Edirol digital recorder

Here is the result, edited in FCPX.... all in all a learning experience all round.

The sound was synched using the FCPX feature which seemed to work well

c and c welcome




Visually, it is nice, Kevin. :)

It appears that you had a filter on the lens as the reflections indicate.

You made me look up what FCPX, Rode, Edirol stand for.


cheers vivek

yeah filters are a problem.... I left one at the restaurant last night!!!

glad I have helped expand your vocabulary

Hope you are well..... we must try and get together in 2012
