Updating the camera drivers via SD cards - YES we can

Straight from the camera Manual...

Quote:
How to update the driver in the Camera?

To update the driver, select PROPERTY on the thumbnail menu, and then SYSTEMINFO to check the version, then go to: https://eww.pavc.panasonic.co.jp/pro-av and download the necessary driver.

The updating procedure is completed when the downloaded file has been loaded into the camera via SD memory card
Page 125 in the manual. Sure, I finished reading 125 pages already ;)

My question is: is driver == firmware.... so whenever problems come, Panasonic can release a firmware upgrade (like nikon, Canon, JVC) and we update it via SD card?

first adopters are not guinea pigs anymore... yaay! :)

That's a very good thing. Very good to know that. Perhaps, Panasonic can let us have for some extra money different features added that were not even thought about by the time it was released. For example: a new sub-menu to work with setting that emulate different emulsions (Kodak, Fuji, etc.) and more cinegammas or MagicBullets in camera. Who knows...!

None of 'em do.

The H1 almost has it, but it requires you to remove the stock lens, so it's useless for homebrew mini35 users. And the real mini35 has its own flip, so it wouldn't work for that either.

The firmware is the "driver" that they're talking about.

This is real good news.

Upgrades and Bug fixes can breathe new life into the HVX.
