Panasonic released new firmware Monday that the company says improves its DMC-L10, the company's second SLR model.

Version 1.1 of the firmware, which can be downloaded from Panasonic's Web site, improves autofocus with the company's 14-50mm and 14-150mm lenses, improves autoexposure in night scenes, and improves the performance of the automatic white-balance operation, Panasonic said.

Panasonic announced the L10 in August. It costs $1,300, including a 14-50mm lens.
