Did you guys know there are other HDSLR cameras other than the Canon EOS 5D Mark II? Ha, I'll bet you did. One of them getting a lot of attention lately is the Panasonic GH2. If you've seen the poll in the right hand margin, the GH2 is in the top 5. We'll be covering more about the other non-Canon HDSLRs because they're important to the community.

We've found this GH2 video that was posted yesterday that is getting a lot of attention. It might have something to do with a snip of Tony Hawk being in there, but mainly it is because skateboarders love video of other skateboarders HA!

  1. Cool video, I noticed quite a bit of shakiness/rolling shutter in some close ups of the skaters, it didn’t look like they were aware of that problem with these cameras.
