    I picked up a few FZ-G1P mk4's on an auction recently and am currently blowing the admin passwords off the BIOS and taking stock of missing screws and the like. I also realize that I've never actually used a modern storage drive before and don't know the connectors. I reached out to Panasonic and they confirmed they use MSATA3 drives, but I'm afraid they may be sourced off old docs.

    Looking at this port and counting pins it FEELS like it's M.2 but I have no experience at all with it.

    So, figured maybe I could get some info here. Can anyone confirm the specs on the storage interface on these?

    Also, hello!

    It is M.2 2280 sata. I have a THNSNK256GVN8 installed in mine.

    Well heck, that's great to hear. I didn't think NVMe would work, but that's good news.

    NVME will not work. It needs to be SATA.

    I'm curious, has anyone run into an aftermarket FLIR module for these? I've seen it mentioned but details seem sketch outside of the FZ-M1 line
