    Firmware Request to Panasonic.
    #1
    Default
    I had this idea on how to get the ball rolling. Unfortunately I don't have any direct email contact info, but I'm going to try the Panasonic USA contact us link. Here's my idea. If everyone sends the same note with a link to a petition I've made we can totally swamp the Panasonic USA contact email address with the same note to try and get some attention.

    Here's the Panasonic USA contact link.


    And here's the note I sent that links to a petition explaining the firmware requests in greater detail:

    You have to copy and paste the petition link because DVXuser truncates it.

    To: Ichiro Kitao, GM, Panasonic's DSC Product Planning
    Request for Lumix GH1 Firmware Updates.

    1. Video out while recording
    2. MJPEG 1080 and 720 24P native recording mode
    3. AVCHD 1080 24P native mode
    4. Improved 1080P AVCHD implementation

    The GH1 is certainly impressive. However, because of the limitations, I cannot buy and use it in my business. A few corrections are in order. I am linking to an online petition explaining the firmware requests and their importance.

    http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/L...est/index.html

    Sincerely,
    The contact space only allows for 600 characters, so I had to trim down the actual note and link to the petition that requests the firmware update in detail. You are free to send your own note that makes a request, but I just think if we all send the same note it's more effective and sends a stronger message.

    No promises that this will make a difference but let's give it a shot and send these messages everyday. My plan is to send them a note everyday for a month. If we all did this once a day it would at the very least annoy someone enough to pass along the information.

    On the link above fill out your info along with this section to target the GH1 people.



    Let's get the ball rolling.

    Thanks, Isaac!

    I sent a slightly different message via Panasonic's online form (note items #1 & #2):

    =====================
    To: Ichiro Kitao, GM, Panasonic DSC Product Planning

    Request for Lumix GH1 Firmware Update:
    1. Video & audio outputs to enable external monitoring when recording.
    2. Allow user to disable audio AGC when recording.
    3. MJPEG 1080 & 720 24P native recording capability.
    4. AVCHD 1080 24P native recording mode.
    5. Improve 1080P AVCHD implementation for high detail scenes.

    Here is a link to an online petition explaining these firmware requests & why they are important:

    Thanks for participating, guys!

    If you know any other sites that are interested in the GH-1, please post the link to the DVXuser thread and have them send a letter to Panasonic.

    Issac Brody did all the hard work, all you have to do is Cut and Paste then send!!!

    Yeah, but that's okay. The difference now is that they're all gettting the same email from individuals around the world. Different IPs, etc.

    Instead of one Petition, Brody's idea is pretty genius because it's like a virtual office rally. =D
