Panasonic Announces LUMIX DC-GH5 Firmware Update Service

The flagship camera gets an upgrade

Panasonic has announced a new firmware update program Ver.2.0 for the LUMIX DC-GH5 to further enhance the camera’s performance.

Interviewing front line photographers and cinematographers worldwide after they had used the GH5, Panasonic investigated what was needed in the field and provided the functions that were strongly demanded. This enhancement is not just a firmware update, but an exceptional upgrade of camera performance to satisfy professional GH5 users.

“At the launch of the GH5, we announced further key updates to come. Not only are we delivering on this functionality, but we have also added a number of other major improvements via this firmware release that we’re sure will satisfy our key GH5 customers,” said Doug Campbell, Category Manager AV and Imaging, Panasonic.

“These videographers and photographers won’t need to wait for the next camera generation to see their feedback realised. They are able to update their GH5 with new functionality from tethered shooting to 18-megapixel Anamorphic video – giving them even greater scope and performance as a working professional”

The new firmware enables GH5 tethered shooting via USB, using “LUMIX Tether” PC software. This lets you view the image on a larger screen while shooting, which is helpful during commercial shoots that require continuous confirmation.

The GH5’s autofocus performance has also been improved in this firmware update with the goal of supporting enhanced video and stills shooting in challenging lighting conditions.

As announced, the camera will offer compatibility with 400 mbps 4:2:2 10-bit ALL-Intra video recording in 4K 30p/25p/24p and Full-HD; high-resolution video recording in anamorphic mode; and 4K Hybrid Gamma Profile compatible with 4K HDR television.

The new DC-GH5 Firmware Version 2.0 is scheduled to be released at the end of September 2017 at http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
