    Did this with my GH2 for's Under Water Over Land Challenge last month.
    It was first attempt using the GH2 for video, and many of the clips were unusable.
    Editing, voice over and music track all done in one afternoon.

    Shot using various lenses and only a monopod for support. Edited with Sony Vegas Pro 12.

    Thanks for the video.

    I like the overall feel of the video. It has a clear story. The choice in music, voice over, and natural sound added to the visuals.

    How come many of your shots were unusable? Was it do to shakiness, rolling shutter or missed focus? Also what lenses did you use? Looks like you used a wide angle/fisheye and maybe a standard zoom maybe. Also what was your setup for the voice over(equipment, type of room during recording)?

    Thanks again.

    The unusable shots were mostly due to lack of practice shooting video with this camera...focus, movement, shakiness, etc.
    In the past I've used regular video cameras, Canon GH2, Pany HMC-150, so it was mostly just the learning curve.
    I used the Rokinon 7.5, 20mm 1.7, 14-42mm kit and the 45-200mm.
    For the voice over, I have a Shure SM58 going through ART Tube Amp preamp directly into my sound card. Just sitting on my computer desk.
