Tester13 on dvxuser.com (see thread GH1 Firmware Hack, dvxuser.com/V6/forumdisplay.php?f=206) has presented a firmware manipulation tool allowing each GH1 owner to add new features to his camera. These include native 24p (incl. playback in-camera) as well as much improved MJPEG and AVCHD bitrates.

This test shows a before and after comparison of the unpatched vs. the patched firmware, making this the GH1³!!!

Fellow Viennese Filmmaker Nino Leitner thankfully posted all details of this test at

All original files are available, if there is interest.
