Available from the end of this month, Panasonic claims the firmware will improve the performance of the GX1’s auto white balance, AF Flexible and AF Continuous functions.

Announced last year, the GX1 carries a 16-million-pixel imaging sensor borrowed from the G3.

It boasts a 0.09 sec AF speed and maximum equivalent ISO sensitivity of 12,800.
