Samsung releases firmware updates for digital SLRs

Samsung releases new firmware updates for the GX-1L, GX-1S, and the GX-10 digital SLR cameras. As the Samsung support website does not reveal the functions and improvements offered by these firmware updates, we can only make a fairly educated guess that these updates are the Samsung equivalent of the recent Pentax firmware updates for the Pentax ist* DL, ist* DS and K10D. Note that you must register your camera on Samsung's support website in order to download this firmware.
Update: Samsung GX-10 firmware details added...
