    What does that mean? I see a lot of Panasonic GH2's that say they are hacked, does it mean for video? What does it do for still photo's? Is it reversible? Any information on this would be appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Yes mostly for videos but I hacked my GF2 as well because I got it here Japan and it only had Japanese menu on it so I hacked it and installed an English menu.

    There's actually a website dedicated to hacking cameras. :)

    Does anyone have experience hacking a GX1 to improve video?

    There is a firmware modification ("hack") somewhere on the web that increases the bitrate and may remove the ISO limit. There is a discussion here:

    I used PTOOL on firmware patches when I had GH2s, used Sanity5 and Flowmotion 2.02 which seemed to work reliably and smoothly. There are no "patches" out for the GH3 and my GH3s and GX1 remain "stock".

    Guys thanks for the input, so they could be changed back if you wanted. Somehow I had it being more harmful.
    Thanks,
