Default FZ150 change PAL to NTSC firmware or other method?

Hi all,

It seems the Fz150 is a very nice camera for my photo and video needs, so I almost bought one.. Until I noticed the Panasonic guys 'hard locked' the video recording framerates to region; US gets NTSC, Europe gets PAL. US can do 30 or 60fps video recording, Europe only 25 or 50!

I want 30/60 but I live in Europe. I could order one from the states, but with import tax and shipping that is expensive, especially as all thats different in the camera is some silly ''NTSC=0'' type code in the firmware somewhere!

Has anyone ever updated / changed the firmware or found another way to turn a PAL Panasonic into a NTSC panasonic?
