Panasonic AG-AF100

Panasonic releases firmware update
Panasonic released the first firmware update for the AG-AF100. It fixes the following problem with SD cards:
Software update for improvement of the SYSTEM ERROR
The system error occasionally occurred on the camera side (AG-AF100 series) when SD Card File Recovery Software on the computer which is connected to the camera by USB cable was executed with SDXC card inserted in the camera.

The SD Card File Recovery Software has been updated so that it can operate normally with the SDXC card.

This system error will not damage the SDXC card.

Firmware makes AF100 hack possible?
Vitaliy Kiselev has taken a look at the firmware release and says it shares much in common with the GH platform, making it possible he could hack the firmware to increase the recording bitrate as he did for the GH1.
