How do you find firmware version

Hi all.

My son has just bought a new Panasonic DMC TZ6 compact camera and we were wondering how do you know what version of firmware is in that particular camera.
Can any body tell me the answer.
regards
Ken.

Re: How do you find firmware version

The currant firmware is v1.2. as of 15th June 2009.

The procedure for checking which version you have is here:

DMC-TZ6/DMC-ZS1 Firmware update service | Digital Camera | Digital AV | Consumer Products | Support | Panasonic Global

It is a little down the page.

Hi Dabhand 16.
The firmware in my son's Panasonic TZ6 is 0.1.2.0
So that must mean no compatible batteries eh with that firmware.
regards
Ken.

Re: How do you find firmware version

Looks like it

However, although this move by Panasonic is universally unpopular, it ought not to be seen as a deal-beaker. Panasonic do make good cameras, so the fact that you cannot use third party batteries is more an irritant than anything else. It is not as if you are going to have to buy loads of them.

I wonder how long it will take the other makers to do the same, and for the third party makers to catch up?

Ken...
This may be of some use to you, this is an "Older" thread, happened a couple of weeks back, but may be of use if you have "non genuine" batteries... vers. 1.1 supports that....
I managed to find that version online for someone else.

I am going to try to post the link to that thread.....
(Hope it works..)
