    Shot with the GH-1 and 14-45 lens. Shot in 720p acvhd. Edited in iMovie.

    My first time out shooting with the GH-1. I previously had a GF1 which was destroyed in a rock climbing video incident...

    I'm definitely liking the swivel screen, makes many shots much easier to frame (such as the 1st climbing shot, held above me on a tripod with the screen tilted down.

    I need to work on the handheld shots more- im thinking of picking up a small steadicam to aid in the smoothness.

    Pretty sweet. I don't have much video of my climbing, and all of my climbing has been indoors, but I really want to get back into it. Its been a few months since I've gone and I def miss it.

    These were both shot with an iPhone 4.

    Nice video, I don't particularly like the slowed frame rate though (unless my eyes are deceiving me?).

    I should definitely go bouldering when I go to the states.

    Movies are 30 fps, slowed down 50% from 720/60p in imovie. I'm just experimenting with the capabilities, as it was something I couldn't do before.
