Nick Driftwood just released a new version of his popular GH2 patches and I’ve had a chance to shoot some comparison footage. The Sedna patches all have my “Pasadena Pulse Audio V2 Beta 2″ settings included already so you don’t need to re-patch them.
Note: If you aren’t comparing technical notes, this is extremely boring footage. Also, this footage is not designed to push the codecs, it’s just the fist comparison posted.
For the rest of you, the link follows. All footage shot with a Panasonic GH2 at ISO 3,200 with a Rokkor 58mm f/1.4 Minolta mount lens used via Fotodiox adapter, a CFD filter attached.
The aperture was set to f/2.8, shutter to 1/50 and each patch was shot in two versions.
The one with the lower number in each folder used Smooth -2, -2, -2, -2.
The one with the higher number in each folder used Smooth -2, +2, -2, -2.
These are the original MTS files straight out of the camera.
To download the patch itself, go to this page http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/2477/driftwood-quantum-x-settings-series-2-sedna-a-b-c/p1
After you register, you can download the patches from the files at the bottom of the first post on that page. For instructions on how to use the files, see my article “Using Higher Bitrates and ISOs on the GH2″.
