Yes! The firmware hack works also for the GF1: read the How-to!


Hi again! I asked tester13 (the major contributor of the GH1 patch) if the firmware really works (well) for the GF1 also. And he said of course! Dear $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'JA' OR $loc == 'JP')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Panasonic GF1 owners, now it is your turn to hack your camera!

{?>Panasonic GH1 video sample has been posted on vimeo:

Tester13′s Firmware Hack test, before – after comparison from Gunther Machu on Vimeo.

Shot with kitlens at f8, 1/160 shutter, iso 100, manual in creative movie mode at 5300K. For MJPEG, the settings of Pappas (see thread MJPEG 70Mbits+ 1080p settings) were used, for AVCHD the “safe” settings indicated at the end were used (from jobless, see thread AVCHD high bitrate tests, mud free footage).

I tried to keep the pans at the same pace, but thats difficult. What is incredible, the MJPEG clearly shows a better resolution (I used just the 1440x1080p settings as my card is only class6), plus the AVCHD shows no mud and increased resolution (before, on low contrast scenes islands of unsharp areas could be seen), as can be clearly seen in the comparison (e.g. look at the shadow area right to the gardenhouse).

Sony fangroup website reviews the Panasonic DMC-LC1


The Panasonic DMC-LC1 is probably one of the nicest digital cameras ever made. The LC1 has been announced in 2004 and I would love to see a successor for such an essential, well designed camera. Curiously the camera has been reviewed by Alphamount world (yes…a Sony fan website). And it is no a short review, Cgarrard wrote a 11 page detailled test! Click here to read it: http://www.alphamountworld.com/reviews/digicam-tribute-panasonic-lc1

43rumors thanks Cgarrard for remembering us how nice the Panasonic DMC-LC1 is! Well done!

(FT3) HOT! Panasonic to announce a completely new type of camera (early July)

According to rumors we received yesterday Panasonic will announce a new camera which will not be comparable with any camera released by Panasonic before. We are not talking about long awaited $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($sel != '1')
{?>LX3 successor. The LX4 (or LX5) will be announced late July or before Photokina. And we are not talking about a camera with interchangeable lenses. The sources did not tell us exactly how it will look like but we from 43rumors believe it will be a MicroFourThirds camera with fixed lens (like the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Sigma DP2)

The camera should be unveiled early July. We hope some of our sources can tell us more about that camera soon!

Thanks Heli. ;)
