We have been using a professional graded Sony camcorder to shoot 30 minute TV shows. The footage I’ve been getting was ‘blah’ at best. There is no shallow depth of field to speak of, and the excessive video noise, no matter how much we crank up the light, was driving me up the walls.
One day, I decided to shoot the whole episode using my GH2, figuring that it can’t be any worse than sony. It turn out a little soft, probably due to not focusing right on the money. Regardless, the show looked filmy compared to the Sony professional camcorder. The entire B-roll was also shot with GH2.
