List of Service Centers who can do Firmware Upgrade 1.6

Let's compile a list of places where MX300 (PAL) owners can go to get their firmware upgrade 1.6 (fixes the DV OUT glitches & fixes OIS so that it goes up to 12X), WITHOUT ANY HASSLE.

Remember, not every Panasonic facility has the equipment necessary for the upgrade, so those on this list can definitely help you.

So, any of you who have got their EEPROM firmware upgrade done successfully, and it's not on this list, please put down where you got yours done. Thanks in advance! The rest of the MX300 community thanks you too!

I got mine done locally in Malaysia.

Malaysia:

I have it from Panasonic that they cannot or will not make firmware changes/upgrades to the MX3000 and MX300 in North America. So Panasonic USA is out of the picture for this thread.
