Panasonic GF1- Everything you need to know.

The Panasonic GF1 is one of my favorite cameras of all time. It doesn't do anything particularly well or better than any other camera, yet there is something about it that I love. Anyway, this post is intended to be a catch all for GF1 stuff.

GF1 Manual Video Hack / Video Quality Hack 

GF1 Firmware Hack-

I use the Reliable In-Camera Playback Patch v2 (GH1, GF1, G2). Details are on the page linked above.

How to find the shutter count on your Panasonic GF1. (GF1 Shutter Actuations)

  1. Put the camera in single shot mode.
  2. Make sure your camera is off.
  3. At the same time press "AF/AE Lock" and "Display" buttons together and hold them in.
  4. Turn on the camera and release the buttons after a few seconds.
  5. Press "Display", "Menu/Set" and "left arrow" at the same time, hold them in. 
  6. Now you should see a history of problem codes on the LCD.
  7. Press "Display" to switch between three different screens. 
  8. Look for codes-
  • PWRCNT # Times turn on
  • SHTCNT: # of pictures taken
  • STBCNT: # times flash was used
