Hi – how long is “long form”?


Hi – how long is "long form"?  The US version of the GH3 will have essentially unlimited video clip length (see the specs here).  Canon/Nikon/Sony DSLR/DSLT/DSLMs have 12 to 30 minute clip length limits – the GH1, GH2 and GH3 do not (outside of Europe).


I have shot with both the GH2 and the VG20 – and I preferred the GH2 (less moire, better control of color profiles in-camera, lower price).


The only really important thing the VG20 gave me that the GH2 didn't was a headphone jack and full manual audio level control – and the GH3 fixes that – for $300 less than the Sony..


If you can wait for it to ship, I recommend taking a hard look at the GH3.


Good luck with your decision!
