Short info:

1. TZ10 is very good, compact camera, with manual controls in photo mode. Has 12x zoom, GPS.

2. It was first target in our new dumping approach.

Short FAQ:

Q. Can you tell us TZ10 dumping status, was it success or not?
A. We completely dumped TZ10 firmware.

Q. Does this mean that you'll distribute dumped firmware?
A. Certainy no. And we do not need this.

Q. How it'll be possible to hack TZ10 in this case?
A. We reversed TZ10 encryption and will use public TZ10 firmware.

Q. Can this info be applied to GH2?
A. Unfortunately, no. GH2 uses different encryption (most probably) or different encryption key, so we need to dump it separately.

More info will follow shortly.]]>

Good Deals: Panasonic DMC-ZS7 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/336/good-deals-panasonic-dmc-zs7 Tue, 05 Jul 2011 23:10:34 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 336@/talks/discussions

In the light of the released hack and in overall, it is good camera.

25mm ultra wide-angle lens
The DMC-ZS7 features a 25mm ultra wide-angle 12x optical zoom f/3.3-4.9 Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens. Incorporating Panasonic's advanced optical technologies, this lens system is comprised of 10 elements in 8 groups, with 2 ED (Extra Low Dispersion) lenses and 2 aspherical lenses/3 aspherical surfaces while preserving compactness. This lens system enables a remarkable 25 to 300mm range of focal length in this compact body. The powerful zoom of the DMC-ZS7 can be freely controlled even when shooting motion images. Inheriting the fine rendering and outstanding quality of the Leica Elmar lens, this easy-to-carry camera delivers beautiful images any time, any place.

16x intelligent zoom/23.4x extra optical zoom
Thanks to the newly incorporated intelligent resolution technology, the intelligent zoom is available with the DMC-ZS7 which extends the zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the picture quality even combining a digital zoom. This means the 12x optical can virtually extend to 16x equivalent. Furthermore, the extra optical zoom function that extends zoom power to 23.4x by using the center part of the large CCD to bring subjects even closer.

Powerful 12x optical zoom
The addition of AVCHD Lite HD movie recording doubles the appeal of the DMC-ZS7. This single camera lets you capture virtually all images in their natural beauty. It gives you both motion and still images, and ranges from 25mm ultra wide-angle shots of sweeping landscapes to powerful 12x optical zoom shots that pull distant subjects right up close. The mechanism design minimizes the noise of auto focusing or zooming.

Travel mode with GPS for both photos and movies
By simply turning on the GPS function, the location data and time are automatically updated. It is great for travel recordings. The DMC-TS7 camera is acclaimed as an excellent travel companion because of a wide shooting range and hybrid recording capability of high quality photos and movies. The DMC-ZS7 further enhances its value by adding a built-in GPS unit into the camera.
