GH2 Sanity X VS. FlowMotion V2
  • Hi,

    I know there is a lot of topic on this but I still can't make a clear decision. I'm going to film Podcast and concert, which of the 2 would handle these type of setting best?

  • I can tell you from my own experience, filming concerts with the GH2, that Flowmotion v2.02 is a VERY GOOD choice. It spans very realiably, so you can film for as long as your battery lasts, which is perfect in a 2 camera setup with one acting as permanent wide shot. (most of the videos here were filmed entirely with GH2s loaded with Flowmotion v.2.02: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR801oNmzjQXmFBrk8bv-xA/videos)

    Keep in mind though that you will need to have at minimum these SD Cards --> SanDisk Extreme 32 GB 45MB/s or better. Best and my recommendation would be the SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB 95 MB/s, which is the card most of these hacks were developed on.

    I do not have a lot of experience with Sanity X though I checked it out before and had good experiences with it too. When you read through the according thread you will find that some people have problems with crashes especially on the SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB 95MB/s Card...

    Depending on how much postpro-work you are planning to do, Flowmotion v2.02 gives you a slight edge in quality, so this would be the choice i recommend.

    If you are not dependent on the best quality/reliability compromise and can compromise when it comes to quality, why not choose Sanity 5.1 instead? It gives you longer recording times than Flowmotion and still has very good, useable quality and is very reliable!

    Hope this helps a bit!
