How do you find the actuation count on a GH1, please?
I'm considering selling my GH1 later in the year and it would be handy to know.

It's hard for me to comment as comparative prices differ between the US and the UK so it's difficult to judge value for money in relation to what else may me available on the second hand market.

Having said that, the GH1 is a very capable, highly specified camera and the shutter count on this one is low. I suspect you could do a lot worse. :)

Recommendations for patches and hacks ...?

I'm hearing a lot about "Driftwood"

Is it really the one to get?

Afraid I cannot help in this respect, I have no knowledge of hacks.

Congratulations on your purchase. I am sure you will enjoy using it. I hav a GH1 and a GH3 which I am very pleased with. Not tried hacks though, I would be interested in your experiences if you do try any. -K.
