Product is 2 stars, but HQRP is 4
on October 16, 2013
I'm baffled by all the positive product reviews for this device and GH2s. I'm a pretty camera savvy guy. I own two different GH2 and after purchasing this product, tried it on both. Didn't work with either. Since it didn't work on both instead of just one or something else camera related, I figured, faulty cable. So I wrote HQRP and they sent me another instantly. Told me feel free to junk the old one. Awesome customer service. Knowing I had a two day conference to shoot coming up in a few days I was delighted. Tried this new cable, and boom, same problem. I must have looked at it 100 times. To me if this many reviews say it works on GH2s, then it has to right? But no matter what I did it never worked. Ever. Not for a single second. I've opened the camera body of a GH1 before and repaired a faulty trigger release cable (pretty proud of that one), but couldn't get this product to work. Eventually sent both back and they gave me a full refund right away.
If anybody has any idea what I or it was doing wrong, please enlighten me. I shoot conferences a lot and can't believe I don't have AC power when dong so. It's terrible.
