Hey guys, i'm getting into photography/videography and am looking at some dslr's. I will mainly use it for downhill skateboarding, which in short is people go down big hills on skateboards (longboards) at very high speeds. I've been to around 42mph and i need something that will take stationary pictures of my freinds going by me while im standing on the side of the road. We wear full face helmets, gloves, knee pads, etc. and aren't just crazy teenagers. I'm leaning towards the nikon, and i have heard the canon T3 feels "cheap" in the plastic sense.
The GH2 is an awesome camera, really awesome once you hack it. The only problem is the lack of custom made accessories for its form factor.
A few months ago I was looking to gear up my GH2 with a nice follow focus rig for shooting video, and if anyone else out there has done the same thing, you've probably realized that there aren't quite as many options as there are for the canons.
(or even the nikons for that matter)
But I did come across something really nice -
the SYSTEM ZERO Follow Focus Standard Panasonic GH2 from IDC.
i found this video on the web and i really love the way it looks
i wonder what type of camera this guy used. Can you help me?
The thing that i love the most is the blurred background.
How can i achieve it?

I fly RC helicopters with a camera attached to get great shots from the air (without the limitations of jibs and sliders). I've been working the helicopters for over a year, and started putting together my own videos 3 months ago- FCP and Adobe Suite. Please check them out and tell me what you think!

What's up everyone. I am a hobbyist continuing to learn every chance I get which is why I love these types of forums. Currently I am working on my event skills. A few people have asked me to video their weddings. As always I like to do my homework. Between the weddings I have been to and the ones I have seen on you tube, I know a couple of things.
1 - I have to work on shooting in low light, because I hate those on cam lights that blind everyone facing the camera.
With new digital cameras touting high framerates of 120 to 300 fps, here's Tom Guilmette's film about a beauty called the Phantom Flex that almost catch a speeding bullet in flight....
