Panasonic GH2 dumped! A big step closer to the final hack!

Good news for all Panasonic GH2 owners! Vitaly (the hacker) managed to dump the firmware of the Panasonic GH2! He can now start the reverse engineering process. It will take some time to understand the GH2 code. But we now have to right to dream the new features we would love to add to our GH2 (50/60P for example?).

There is also one more good news. Unlike the GH1 the GH2 video uses the RAM instead of ROM. You could be able to update the hacked software without to have to install one firmware hack update after another! Go Vitaly go!

follow Fuji X100 on MirrorlessRumors.


A message for our readers: Many of our readers here are interested in getting news about the Fuji X100. But many also not! The problem is that the X100 doesn’t really fit well inside the 43rumors website and that creates some controversy discussion. I think the X100 is an interesting camera and It’s certainly worth to mention this camera on 43rumors from time time for two reasons:
1) Fuji is a Four Thirds group member (but the X100 is not a 43 camera)
2) The X100 brings some nice innovations is nice to talk about

But I kindly ask you to follow my second website which is I am going to work very hard on that website to provide you with unique content. Today I posted a full list of Fuji X100 news (Click here). I will keep posting a few X100 news on 43rumors with the link to MirrorlessRumors so that readers will get used to the new website. I hope this is a good solution for all our readers. Thanks!

P.S.: I will soon post an article about my goals with I really do think Mirrorless cameras are the future and I am excited about that!

P.P.S.: You can get the Fuji X100 right now at Amazon US (Click here). UPDATE: Out of Stock after 23 minutes!

One of the very last chances to get the GF1 for cheap (Display Units to buy) + Olympus lens rebates

Damn did we all love the GF1! The bad news is that you almost can’t find it in Stock anymore. Panasonic discontinued the camera and if you find them than certainly not for a reasonable price.. There are still readers asking me where they can get it for a decent price. One of our readers found a nice deal. You can get three display units for $400/270 Euro (body only):
- first display unit on eBay (Click here).
- second display unit on eBay (Click here).
- third display unit on eBay (Click here).

I don’t know how long those deals will last. Wish you Good Luck!

Olympus also launched a bunch of new deals:
- Olympus America launched the new E-PL1 deal. You can get the camera + les for $399. Click those direct links to get the E-PL1: Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), B&H (Click here), J&R (Click here).
- Olympus 9-18mm lens for $599 at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), B&H (Click here), J&R (Click here).

We just learned from our sources that the Panasonic G3 with 14-42mm kit lens will be priced at $649. That’s $150 less than the price of the Panasonic G2 (original launch price in March 2010).
As we already told you the major changes will be the new 16 Megapixel sensor with FullHD recording and the new more compact design (with focus on touchscreen controls). There will be no other big changes. Announcement is expected around May 11/12. The new Panasonic lenses will be announced in late August only.
