    Do 3rd party battries work in GF1

    Does anyone know if the GF1 has the firmware that only allows Panasonic battries to be used and no third party battries will work?

    Regards

    I think that its safe to assume no, but even if it does now you'll not be able to put any firmware upgrade in it from Panasonic then that will knock it on the head for sure.

    But shop around the place for your batteries ... USA is cheaper than Europe

    and yes ... I know its a shameless wallet rape

    No, they don't. A warning is displayed on the LCD and the camera won't turn on.
