Eoshd-patch-vault1-224x63I don't own or shoot on a Panasonic GH2, but whenever I cover its hacked firmware releases the installation instructions always sound a bit daunting. Now EOSHD has released new patches and "film modes" for the camera, which offer similar functionality to existing GH2 hacks but (possibly?) easier installation. Says EOSHD's Andrew Reid, "I believe them to be the most optimal patches and film modes for the best image quality currently possible on the GH2."

The list of features for the first of the patches (there are three in all, as represented by the icons above):

  1. 200Mbit AVCHD 1080/24p
  2. Max ISO 12,800
  3. 80Mbit Anamorphic 2.66:1 MJPEG
  4. 44Mbit AVCHD 1080/24p fail-safe mode for added reliability
  5. All menu languages, PAL / NTSC menu and removal of the 30 minute EU clip limit
