the firmware download page is here http://www.sanyo-dsc.com/support/upd...000/index.html

I first saw it on watch.impress.co.jp here http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/av/do...1109/sanyo.htm

i think from the quick google translate, it improves video and audio plus some xacti library functions.

looks like it specifies its for DMX (japan) models only. I guess the VPC model will have to wait a bit.

Wow, that was fast. 3MB .zip (expands to a 6MB .bin firmware). Looks like the instructions arethe same aspast firmware updates. But I agree with ray301, it's probably best for you guys to wait for English instructions (because you don't want to mess up a risky firmware update) and ensure you get a proper VPC model firmware.

I remember the firmware update for the C6 had one for the DMX and one for the VPC, at the time I did a binary compare between the two and they were identical. But considering some of the new Xacti DMX models sold in Japan only have a Japanese language option, you might not want to risk it.

I also notice they updated the English HD1000 product page. It's written that the new EIS can do what OIS can't: handle rotational shake.

:GOk guys... it's here, the HD1000 firmware update for VPC models. Butthis is a little strange: it's available from Sanyo corporate (Japan) and Sanyo Europe (Germany),but I did a file compare between the two and they are not the same. The one posted on the Japan site is the same one that was posted earlier.

Sanyo-dsc.com = s211nup1.bin = 6,167,876 bytes = "VER=v211-80" = "1.1.0"
Sanyo.de = s211n079.bin = 6,159,592 bytes = "VER=v211-79" = "1.0.0"

So it looks like the Japan one is more up-to-date... I don't understand why Sanyo Europe would post v1.0.0? but your choice I guess... (grab them both, in case you ever want to revert to v1.0.0?)

HD1000 Firmware update from Sanyo Corporate (Japan)(v1.1.0)

HD1000 Firmware update from Sanyo Europe (Germany)(v1.0.0)
