Firmware Upgrade for Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC43 ?

    Before buying this camera I downloaded the specifications from Panasonic.
    It shows Exposure: Program AE
    Shutter Speed: 8-1/2000 sec(Shutter Priority Mode, Manual Mode)and
    1-1/2000 sec, except for Shutter Priority Mode and
    Manual Mode.

    The actual camera that I bought has no manual aperture or shutter speed
    control. It is completely automatic. And the manual that came with the
    camera confirms this. My last ten shots varied from f2.8, 1/30 to f8.0,
    1/80 (ISO 50). I can alter the exposure a little by increasing the ISO
    to 200.
    These shutter speeds are far too slow, especially when trying to
    photograph sports or grand-children, who won't keep still!

    Is there a firmware upgrade that could improve this situation.
    Thanks.

    BTW: This camera was purchased in New Zealand. I had no luck trying to
    contact Panasonic (Japan) but got the comment from Panasonic (Australia)
    that cameras sold in NZ or Australia may have different specs.
