Panasonic will release version 2.0 firmware upgrade for its Lumix DC-GH5 camera at the end of September

The enhancement will give an “exceptional boost” to the camera’s performance, according to Panasonic.

The firmware update is based on feedback about the GH5 gained from interviews Panasonic conducted with photographers and cinematographers worldwide. The upgrade will give better compatibility with the Lumix Tether PC software firmware, which will enable the GH5 to be tethered via a USB while shooting.

Users will also be able to view the image on a large PC screen while shooting, which is helpful in commercial photoshoots, where continuous confirmation is required. The new firmware will also improve auto focus performance for subjects with low contrast, and auto focus tracking in video recording. Other benefits include, faster photos in burst shooting sequence after 6K Burst & 4K Burst, for high quality image delivery and a shorter waiting time. An additional All-Intra video mode has been added to the 4K/FHD video recording.

The upgrade includes enhancement to HDR (High Dynamic Range) - a mode to reproduce both bright part and dark part in an image, making it look just as how the human eyes would see. With 4K HDR video recording and the HLG recording mode, it is now easier to playback videos on compatible screens supporting 4K HDR. Also, High-Resolution Anamorphic mode, which enables video recording in 18-mega effective pixels, is added.

Image stabiliser enhancement, correction of white balance setting and improved usability of the time-lapse shot & power save all contribute to the GH5 firmware’s enhanced user experience.

Other improvements include enhanced wireless image transmission on auto transfer and sleep mode, and improved functionality of various function buttons, allow for ease of access, and seamless experience.

The new DC-GH5 firmware Ver 2.0 is scheduled to be released at the end of September 2017, on the Lumix.
