Panasonic GF1 hack improvements (now with manual movie modes!)

The firmware patch is now bringing manual movie modes for the Panasonic GF1 (it works like on the Panasonic GH1). This includes all M, A, S modes.

Vitaly told us that “You need to go to menu and set appropriate mode. Also if you go to menu in picture shooting mode it’ll convert to corresponding movie mode, just turn wheel one click and return it back to go to back to normal picture mode. This can be even handy :-)
Tested and working. Including shutter control during recording, etc.
So, GF1 can be used as second camera now.

How-to and firmware download are available here: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=206788&page=225

Side note: Both cameras are sold in US stores with the cheapest price ever. Oh yes Photokina is getting closer…
Click on those store names to check the price and availability of the GF1: Amazon / Adorama / BH
and here for the GH1: Amazon / Adorama / BH
