panasonic gh 2 - ability of shooting video in raw mode by hack?

Is it possible to shoot videos with panasonic gh 2 by installing the right hack as RAW mode? Is the sd card reader speed fast enough to process it? Which resolution is the highest when shooting with 24 fps? (I have to make a decision between canon 600d and panasonic gh 2 - the sd card reader of 600d can only process ca. 21mb/s which leads to a small resolution when shooting in raw , 24 fps).


There are NO RAW hacks for the GH2 camera, but there are many really good high bit-rate hacks for this camera.

I used the FlowMotion version 2.02 hack with my GH2 cameras for almost 2 years, and the footage was gorgeous.

Keep in mind that you will need high performance memory cards to use these hacks for the GH2, with many people using the SanDisk 64GB SDXC Memory Card Extreme Pro Class 10 UHS-I cards. These cards cost about $80 each right now. ( I paid $200 each when I bought mine several years ago )

I still use these cards with my Panasonic GH4 camera, and they still work perfectly.

How Guy said it's not RAW but better bit rate is good.
