Panasonic LX3 2.0

Panasonic just released firmware 2.0 for the LX3 camera. It's almost like getting a new camera for free! Hard to believe that in these days of disposable electronics, a manufacturer would release such a large update for a camera that's been on the market for just over a year.

Changes in firmware 2.0:
  1. Improved auto white balance performance.
  2. Auto Focus speed-up.
  3. Recording function with an aspect ratio of 1:1 has been added.
  4. A white balance (WB) bracket function has been added.
  5. [HIGH DYNAMIC] has been added to scene mode.
  6. [LENS RESUME] has been added to the [SETUP] menu.
  7. [MENU RESUME] has been added to the [SETUP] menu.
  8. The exposure compensation and the auto bracket compensation can now be set up to ±3EV.
  9. Position of the guide line can now be set.
  10. It is now possible to display the highlights in playback mode.
  11. It is now possible to record the user’s name in the picture.
  12. Digital red-eye removal has been modified.
  13. Items saved in the custom set have changed.

Since I'm using pfSense now I decided to order some ALIX 2D3 to try out the multi-WAN functions. I also got some 2 GB CF cards since that's the smallest size I could find locally. Pretty sad that the smallest size at less than $10 a piece is faster than the ones I use with my DSLR, and I got those for like $200 each.

09/09/09 09:09

While the Chinese consider 8 to be the most auspicious number. Thais considers 9 to be the most auspicious number. Happy 999999!

Eventhough the number 9 isn't especially special in other parts of the world, 09/09/09 doesn't come very often, so a number of companies are taking advantage of this date to launch their new products.

Good thing I'm getting paid for a number of my projects this month. Will post some pics when I have more free time.
