Setting up the GH1 for action?

Hi folks!
Next weekend there will be a huge annual baloon festival here in town. This will be my first time attending the launch, and I will probably work the launch grounds with the GH1 w/14-140 over one shoulder, and the E-P1 w/7-14 over the other. I know that neither camera is designed for action shooting, but I want to maximize their potential nonetheless. Can anyone share their tips and tricks for using the GH1 for action? The wide range of focus options on this camera is confusing to me. Pre AF? Q-AF? C-AF? AF Tracking vs. 23 Point vs. Single Point? AFS Mode vs. AFC Mode? From the manual I know what these things are, but I don't know in practice which ones are actually helpful.

Thanks! Your help is greatly appreciated.

Gordon, I can't help you out with this on the GH1. Do you feel you have it down for the E-P1? If not, we can move this into the more universal Open Forum.

That balloon festival sounds fantastic!
