  • DPReview reviews the Panasonic GH2. "The GH2 is easily the best video-equipped stills camera that we've ever used. The depth of its feature set is impressive, but more importantly, it creates great looking video."

(B&H are taking preorders and say they expect them soon.)

  • Workflow thing. I hate it when I go to a product website and after five minutes of study, I'm still not sure what they are selling, and how it's supposed to help me. Silverstack offers an H.264 is supposed to "manage backup, quality control and media handling" but I'm not really sure how it does that. Is it just a backup program?: Pomfort: Silverstack
