Hot tub, golf, and all I did was wash my car for the first time this year. Actually I didn't, just pressure sprayed it. But I did clean the tires. About 60,000 miles on the tires and they still look brand new.<br><br><br><br>
<a href="http://www.pasctraining.panasonic.com/firmware/">download and follow directions</a><br><br>i did it. it makes focusing better during movie mode and i believe it now zooms faster overall. probably more but i didn't see any release notes.<br><br>--<br>[color:red] Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions </font color=red>
I followed all the directions and nothing happened. The directions say if nothing happens then your camera already has firmware 1.2 onboard. <br><br>I wish I could know for certain. I could download photome onto a PC. I think all I have to do is have the photome look at a picture I have taken with the lumix and it will dig out the firmware verion from the get info. Or I could do this weird hold four buttons down to get into service mode but that sounds like it is too easy to brick the camera.<br><br>So now I have an 8GM 15mb/s Ultra SD card. Time to take a few movies. Meeting siblings in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in a few minutes. There are some moving sculptures there.<br><br>
you can check your firmware version by putting the camera in playback mode (you need to have a photo taken already). you then press the e-zoom (i don't have my camera, but it's the button next to the button you press to take a photo) and then while pressing that you should press the down button (as if moving the cursor down). <br><br>does that make sense? it's off of the top of my head and i've only done it once when i was checking the other day during my install. but 1.2 just came out so i doubt you have it.<br><br>were you plugged in or using the battery? the battery needs to be fully charged to work. and you need to be in playback mode.<br><br>--<br>[color:red] Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions </font color=red>
Never could get the button pushing to tell me what firmware I had so I just mailed myself a picture and checked on a PC with PhotoMe. Yup, you're right, 1.1.3. <br><br>After much finagling, most of which was trying to figure out how to format the card in camera and that did it. The thing updated and I then checked by Photome another picture.<br><br>This is a 1.1.3 photo of the new BleacherBar underneath the seats out in right field of Fenway Park:<br><br><br><br>And this is a photo of some 3D artwork at the Museum of Fine Arts<br><br><br>If you look very carefully oyu can see a refelction of the camera lens. I think they did this by a one way mirror in front inside a mirrored box. There were views from all sides so it was all a bit infinity.<br><br><br><br><br>Tried out a movie and the focusing worked perfectly. Everything seems a bit snappier.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
here's the directions i was trying to explain:<br><br><br><br>there is also a hack that i used to get the firmware version no a Mac. i did it using the terminal, so it's not for the weak of heart. but it works. i found it on dpreview, fwiw.<br><br>--<br>[color:red] Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions </font color=red>
Those directions did not work for me. I just tried it and scooby doo it works now that I am 1.2 or else I flunked direction following. It could have been that all the other times I was trying it the card had not been formatted in camera but was still the store bought format.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Finally got around to call Overland Photo 913-648-5950 and ordered two items from Patty in Overland, Kansas.<br><br>1) cat# 206953 Kaiser Push-On Lenscap 53mm $9.95<br>2) cat# CK-1 Sima Cap Keeper $1.35<br>regular mail padded envelope shipping $1.85<br><br>The 53mm cap will fit over the Lumix lens system and the cap keeper will tie it to the camera. Patty said they were selling a lot of those caps for the Lumix but both were still in stock.<br><br>I think I have everything now with an extra battery, 8GB ultra II SD card and 12 stick on protectors for the LCD screen. <br><br><br><br>
i'll bet that's overland park kansas -- a suburb of Kansas City. i'll be there in 3 weeks so maybe i'll swing by to save $2 in shipping. <br><br>--<br>[color:red] Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions </font color=red>
