Once you get the camera and register it w/Panny you will be notified automatically when firmware updates are available. Not helpful to you now though.

Focus, OK, let me see what I can remember since I don't have the camera in front of me.I've only shot one short project on it and some b roll for another thus far.

Like you I"m sure, but I was always taught to zoom in focus on every shot, z-out... In doco work I've found that very impractical lots of times. Never did doco stuff in my early days. So in the 160p I keep the focus assist on, the classic highlights turn red when in focus, then, with that kept on, there is this other button, evf detail or something like that. It seems to look kind of like adding an unsharp mask in photoshop as the edges suddenly look super sharp AND in low light, where the red highlight thing doesn't usually work very well, it works great and I see the red highlights even in low light AND a crisper image when in focus. I know some would hate all that, but I'm pretty darn picky about my focus and composition and seeing all the readouts around the viewfinder. I've turned most of them on. There is a button on the side so you can quickly turn all that off, which i've used a lot thus far. Let me know if that's not clear. Sorry I"m kind tired after a late night at the Supermeet.
