[GF1] The frustration of living in Japan
Sep 18, 2009

Sorry I have to rant.

The GF1 releases in Tokyo today. Before going to the shops I doublecheck on DPR on the GF1 preview & the international multi-lingual version includes Japanese. So I thought good news!! No "local" version!!

Went to Fujiya Camera in Nakano (my fav cam store) & the local JP GF1 ONLY has Japanese with no other language option! Where's the logic in that!? At least I believe Sony's international digicams don't include Jp (which -partially- justifies having a local Jp version) but the Panasonic local GF1 is a subset of the Intl version!?

Even the printed txt on the buttons are in English!?

Q: anyone heard of buying a Jp version & flashing it with an Intl firmware? Has that been attempted?
