  • Wow! This is very good thread! Thanks VK. :-)

  • ooh...... no manual movie mode for g3 ... ooh .... I thought new version will be released with g3 supported ... ooh .... crying so sadly .....

  • @xu_alex

    Not yet. Issue is that it require more time for reversing and experiments.

  • great news.. i hope you can work it out with manual modes on G3

  • Real time updates are the best

  • With time I'm sure the answer will be found! Please do keep us updated on further progress! Thanks.

  • Thanks for the great work. +1 for the manual mode for G3.

  • @Vitaliy_Kiselev, you still work alone on this?

  • @humpman

    No, I share most of the work with my cat.

  • Any news on if the Film Modes for GH2 will ever be possible to hack?

  • @ Vitaliy_Kiselev

    "No, I share most of the work with my cat." LOL, man you made my day, i love you for this!

    ... and many thx for the G3 manual video modes!

  • yea, LOL at VK comment.. :) his cat must be the smartest cat in the world.. not like my lazy tomcat :)

  • @Vitaliy_Kiselev Oh, no GF2 reverse osmosis of a manual mode? or at least in gf4;)? Please ask your cat for help on this one.

  • May be a stupid question regarding GH3. Since the new firmware is out do you need to dump it off the camera?

  • May be a stupid question regarding GH3. Since the new firmware is out do you need to dump it off the camera?

    Yes, of course :-) Firmware is encrypted.

  • @Vitaliy_Kiselev Why is GF2 out of development?

  • @nereo

    Lack of time, if something could be ported to it, we'll do it.

  • We hope!

  • Ooh, glad I just sold the GF2 I'd bought in anticipation of hack and sold in anticipation of no hack! Very useful thread, knowing how things are going is great, thank you.

  • So I guess no GF3 manual video any more?

  • So I guess no GF3 manual video any more?

    I am sure that if I could make manual video for other camera of this generation it could be made for GF3.

  • Just wondering, (I imagine this is a redundant question, but I've gotta ask!)- any chance of 10-bit color through hacking?

    I know that's a true pipe-dream, but man... at least BlackMagic got that right with the pocket cinema camera!

  • Okay, I found my answer here. Thanks Vk.

  • Hi Vitaliy, some news related to the development of gh3? thanks
