I am not a filmmaker by any stretch of the imagination, but the reason I bought the GH2 was to take excellent photos and videos of my son. Until now, I have mostly taken video using Motion JPEG - 720p setting, because it's easy for me to share the clips in that MOV format (they upload directly to Flickr, for example), and I like how the MOV files are numbered the same as the pictures. Also, when I first got the GH2, my computer was too old to edit/play the AVCHD movies. But I'm kind of shortchanging the capabilities of the GH2 by not using AVCHD, and I have since gotten a new Macbook Pro. My version of iMovie seems to be able to import the AVCHD files without any problem, even the new high bitrate movies. On one hand, I want to take and save videos in the highest resolution possible, for future generations ... ha ha. On the other hand, I rarely share the videos in their full size, and no one in our family even has a Blu-Ray player. What do you think? Should I switch to 1080 recording? Should I use high bit rate setting? What would that get me anyway? Is it 1080i or 1080p? I'm confused!
