I was hesitant to use the Panasonic GH2 for this idea because of all the night shots.
My logical choice for this shoot should have been the Canon 5D2. Then there was the usual battle of how much, or better, how little equipment can we get away with. The GH2, paired with the Nokton 25mm and the two pancakes (20mm and 14mm), glide cam and a bean bag fits into a small/medium sized backpack! I was pleasantly surprised with the image quality @ISO2500, the 5D2 would produce cleaner files at the same ISO setting but there were a few gorilla style shots we wouldn’t have been able to get with bulkier equipment (draws too much attention).
