    Hi team,

    it may seem like a strange request, but I have a friend who fell in love with the MJPEG rendering of the TZ5, and who'd like to know if he could hack a GF1 or GH1 to benefit of the same "quality", with the ability to use various lenses.

    I read somewhere that the TZ5 firmware was unencrypted, and that Vitaly started the GH13 project with a TZ5 firmware hack project.

    So my questions are :

    - does anyone know the E1, E2, E3 and E4 Quality/Table values for the TZ5 ?

    - if no, I get a look at the MJPEG research thread, and it seems that there is a analyzing method in place. Can someone confirm the following workflow which would help me achieve my goal :

    - take some TZ5 footage
    - extract some JPEG
    - analyze them with JPEGSnoop

    - try different values of the E1->E4 settings on a GF1/GH1
    - take some GF/GH footage
    - extract some JPEG
    - analyze them with JPEGSnoop

    and finally compare the 2

    Thanks in advance

    TZ5 has exactly same settings as other cameras.
    All the difference is due to CCD sensor :-)
