    Looking to get back into photography and want to start doing some filming, both equally important.

    Looking for a camera that I can do slow motion on. Anything else out there besides the gh2? Also need vibration reduction during video, does that rule out olympus?

    Olympus EM5 will let you use in body IS with all lenses in video, all Olympus cameras will IS with Panasonic lenses that have a physical IS switch in video. Non of the Olympus cameras
    offer 60p. Your best bet is to get a Sony if you want to do 1080 60p.

    Both my GH1 & GH2 will do 720/60p - I actually do most of my wildlife videos in that mode, but no m43 body is capable of 1080/60p yet.

    Only the GH1 and GH2 shoot native 60P. All the other models that claim to shoot 60P are only doubling the framerate of the sensor's native 30P output, rather than recording an extra frame.

    can the gh1 be found for cheap anywhere? looks like it held its value way to much? Same price as gh2?

    i would by a nex if it took 4 3 lenses. :(

    Looks like the GH1 body tends to go for 300-350 on eBay, so that's not too bad if you can find a decent auction. Don't know if you need the lens along with it.

    Many of us who have a GH1, kept it when we upgraded to the GH2 as a backup and B cam. Good luck in your search, make sure to ask for recent image samples and check for dead pixels, since there's a likely hood that it's been used heavily for video.
