Re: Upgrading firmware from another region

The point is that Panny DOES build regional models limited by hardware. Japanese language models can't be converted to multi-language menus via firmware, for example.

I just had this answer from panasonic italia: "We are sorry to inform you that we are unable to unlock the feature of the product you bought".

I am very angry about that... This is a heavy limitation for the use I wanna make of this camera! And the european user manual available at does not include my model (FT1EB) in the list of limited model (like the DMC-FT1SG)!

I hope that someone find a way to unlock this limit by press some combination of key, just like is possible in some dvd player/recorder for make them compatible to all areas dvd...
