Aylwin Cal === 19th August 2003 === www.hat-in.com, Japan

Just received a nice black DV cam at my doorstep less than an hour ago. It looks really cool!

The fact that this is a Japanese-only model was a problem for me. I would never have bought this if not for this forum. It's impossible to ignore all the posts and praise. Plus, the English translation "seals the deal". Big thanks to Kuraoka-san for his work!

query for owners of gs100k

I'm placing an order for this cam within the next couple of days.

Need your inputs on two things:

1. the CD with the driver software that comes with the shipment is in Japanese, and will work only with Jap OS. Is there an alternate that will work with Windows 2000?

2. The remote that comes is also marked in Japanese. Is there an English alternate?

I am OK with dealing with the Jap menus using the excellent translation provided by others on this board, and intend to manage with the 953 Manual.

Thanks in advance for your response.

1. It works with my XP(Not JapOS) but I installed usb+web driver +G726(for mpeg4) only from CD. Other programs(should work too) have japanese menu so I didn't installed. I guess no problem with window 2000. Or you can find english version driver (for gs70 or MX500A but I think they should work) in support section - http://www.panasonic.com.au .

2. You can find english version (PV-DRC9 Remote Control(English) For Panasonic Digital Camcorders) in B&H
but I don't know it works with gs100(it is for gs70 ).

i wanted to let everyone know that the jap cd in the box with your cam that contains the driver files is fine to use

just pop in the disc and dont auto play it
instead browse it to the drivers folder and only install the drivers and not the software that is jap
the drivers are universal for your os and are not in jap nor are they hard to locate when browsing the disc
if anyone needs more specific instructions i will be happy to post detailed

as for the remote i have printed out and cut
from a template i made in psp from a picture of the 953 remote that picture is on the yahoo gs100 site if you dont have one

Thanks DooKee Cho & Shawn for your resonses.
Much appreciated.

One more query. I've heard a lot about the 'Skin tone' feature on the gs100 model. thats not available on the current (older) US version - 953.

Can you help explain how it works, and the settings to make it work. (if its explained in some manual thats available online, just point me to it).

thanks again!
- Amit

Hi again Amit:

The skin tone feature is as I know it, just a button that sit inside the screen door. I believe it's either on or off.

As for the GS100 manual.... there is a pdf version of it. I have it but use dial up and I didn't want to e-mail it to you with your permmision. But it is available at the same Yahoo GS100 site or again somewhere here, but you may have to search the threads and go back several weeks to find the link.

If you need further help please let us know.

Thanks again, Rick!

I've come across the 953 manual, and gs70 manual too on this board and the gs100 yahoo group, but not the gs100 one.

would be great if you can upload it to your yahoo briefcase or something from where I can download it.

thanks again.
- Amit

Amit:

There is only a translated version of the GS100 manual. Not all if it was translated and there are several pages still in Japanese. The guys who worked on it didn't have the time to translate 212 pages, but the ones you need to operate the camera are done. They are basically the same as the menu translation pages and the diagrams

I know that is online too. I have a dial up (cable is coming to my neighborhood) so if you really need it I will upload what I have for you.

Please let me know if you can't find the partially translated GS100 manual. In the meantime I'll try to find the link for you and post it here if I find it again.

Best regards,

Rick.

Suggestions!!!

Amit, Rick...

Lets Update the new camera owners, Black or silver cam, Accessories, price list, cheap accessories availability, Brand name etc. in this thread.

We can also update the accessories list separately, like wide angle lens, tele photo lens, different filters in a separate list, like the one we have as new users list.

If we want to talk about any other issues please lets create new thread on that topic. And ofcourse we can use this thread as reference in other threads. No offense please.

Thanks,
Sam
