ISO Comparison GH2 vs. G6 vs. GH3

As long as I still have the three beauties from Panasonic at home, I thought about doing a comparison to decide which one I’ll keep, and because some others may ask themselves a similar question: Here it is, the first excerpt of my comparison experiments:

All Shots are done with the Panasonic 20mm f1.7 at f3.2 with shutter speed set to1/25th at AVCHD 24p, Standard picture profile at 0 0 0 0 and manual WB 10000K.

The GH2 is hacked with Driftwood’s T7 Moon high bitrate hack. And because Nick Driftwood recommends it for 24p video, the GH2 uses i.Dynamic at LOW.
G6 and GH3 have intelligent settings disabled.

I found it very hard to match the cameras via their color profiles so I decided to use STD 0000 on all of them.

For post production in After Effects and Premiere, I decided to convert all shots to DNxHD first.
Sorry for the poor white balance, but I just had one LED spot that was dimmable and no proper video light. I then decided to leave it as it is and did not apply any color grading in post.

I’m going to publish a comparison at ISO 800 with some more individually optimized settings on each camera and – as far as my skills go – some optimization in post.
