    I signed up just to counter how ungrateful you sound. We are very lucky that we have people willing to spend their time improving our cameras beyond what Panasonic had intended. I used ptool on my GF1 and can't wait for it on my GX1. I am a bit late to make a donation for the GX1 fund but I will make a donation as soon as the hack is finished to thank Vitaliy for all of his hard work. The GX1 is a great camera but would definitely be made better with manual video mode. I am very interested to see what the GX1/G3 are capable of when pushed to the limit...

  • This is great news! I will donate soon as well.

  • GReat news!! can u preview what's the key feature for GX1? would it be on manual video? :) can't wait and let do the folks here know if need more support

  • Plan is to port features present in GF2, GF3 hacks. Later we'll move to manual thing, as it'll be similar for four cameras.

  • Personally I d like to see how we can take the mp4 h264 wrapper stuff further. ;-)

  • Any news about Gx1 hack development ?

  • @scipio

    I am working on next PTool that will have support for G3 and GX1. Hope it'll be available in June.

  • Super! Great! Can't wait! :)

  • @Vitaliy_Kiselev Thank you very much for the fantastic news :)

  • We'll have some release delay due to me being sick for some time :-) But I have only few remaining things to finish, so it'll be soon.
