Panasonic released a Firmware Update for the AF 100 that address a major problem with the camera. If the VFR mode is turned on then the AF100 does not record audio. The meters read and the headphone out works. This is a major flaw with the camera. The firmware update addresses this to some degree. Now, there is a red slash over the A.REC icon on the LCD monitor. The meters still show audio and the headphone out still works. I wish they would kill it altogether. The rest of the updates are just ho hum. Please take note. No Audio if VFR is on. Here are the features of the firmware update.
1.The color of the picture in the LCD display has been improved.
2. During VFR recording, an icon which tells “No audio is recorded” has been added in View finder and LCD display. There is no change for the functionality of the camera.
3. Capability for handling the invisible file made by Mac has been added. The firmware update for the items below has been made possible by using Mac. - Camera body of AG-AF100 series firmware update - Lens firmware update by using AG-AF100 series
