Testing Tip

ALWAYS test your camera patch for reliability before taking it on a paid job!

Playback Tip

Just after recording, a clip will not playback in-camera. If you reboot the camera and enter playback mode, all clips will playback just fine. This is normal behaviour of the hacked GH2 and not a bug in the patch.

Patch Vault

These patches support the latest firmware, version 1.1 for high bitrate 1080/25p and improved noise reduction.

And finally…

For all the thousands of people that have hacked their GH2 there have been no reports of bricked cameras from using the hack. The only problem can occur if updating the firmware (genuine or hacked) with an A/C cord or faulty third party battery. Always use a genuine battery when applying the hacked firmware update and EOSHD patches.
