GH2 > 60fps or 50fps ?

    I can only shoot video at 50fps.

    My European GH2 is making AVCHD in 50fps instead of 60fps as all the reviews announce.

    Any idea why?

    [See the ANSWER from Panasonic bellow]

    Isn't it setup for PAL video? then it should be 50 (or a multiple of it). I never checked if my European Mu4/3 allows an NTSC setup, which supposedly should run at 60 fps.

    The only settings where I find a property to set it up to PAL or NTSC is under PLAYBACK settings and that affects nothing.

    Do you know a similar menu under REC mode? I think that would be it but I cant find anything!

    How are you verifying the 50fps?

    In any video editor! e.g. Premiere
    Do you have 60fps in your videos?

    I don't have a good video editor (waiting to get new laptop) but when I look at the information in VLC, it says Frame Rate is 59.940060, so I guess that is 60.

    Of course, I have the US version of the camera ...

    Can you post a very small MTS file somewhere?

    Wow, that is raw. Guess you're going to have to hack it, whenever the hack comes out. :frown:
