The Panasonic DMC-GH1 builds upon the previous model - the DMC-G1 - with the addition of a movie mode.

And what a movie mode it is — offering full High Definition 1080p quality. Autofocus continuously adjusts in movie mode to ensure that subjects stay sharp and you can achieve a cinematic look by manually adjusting both shutter speed and aperture. You can even add on the optional DMW-MS1 Stereo Microphone for superior audio quality.

So what are you waiting for? It's time to start working on the script for your next major production!
