Panasonic GH2 hacked!

It was a matter of time and the time is now: the GH2 has been hacked. Programmer Vitaliy Kiselev has just got to work on the new firmware. Obviously it's still in Beta but he has managed to get these functions -at least partly- working:

  • the 30 minute clip length limit being removed (for PAL versions)
  • a PAL / NTSC menu function
  • new audio bitrates
  • AGC selection
  • 720/25p, 1080/25p, and 1080/60p (the latter two currently freeze the camera)
If you want to be a Beta tester or want to help out with the development with a donation, here is the place to do so.

Exciting times- this is going to turn a great camera into a killercam! Power to the People! (didn't I use that slogan for a post a few days ago..?)
