    hi there, first post

    just bought a GF1

    it arrived today

    i did lots of research about buying a new camera and this looks like an awesome one!

    previous i owned a canon eos back in the film days, also had a canon powershot until one of my friends broke it

    finally a new camera!

    so i'm after some tips!

    anything anyone can recommend to make the camera awesome

    whats better AVCHD or MOTION JPEG?

    also anyone using the 1080p hack yet? cons? probs? should i do it or will it nuke the camera??

    thanks peeps!

    will do a lot of reading around!

    Hello Matti and Welcome to the home of m4/3rds :friends:

    I just came across this video, taken with the GF1 + 20mm f1.7... something for you to aspire to :biggrin:

    Cheers

    Brian,

    I've underappreciated the video capabilities of this camera ... until viewing this ...


    VERY intriguing ...

    Welcome Matti! The GF1 is a great camera, and as Brian pointed out in his post a decent piece of equipment to capture video too!
