Panasonic Firmware Updates (2018/10/23) for LUMIX Cameras DC-GH5 (Version 2.4), DC-GH5S (Version 1.2), DC-G9 (Version 1.2), DC-GX9 (Version 1.2): Improvements

The following video presents Panasonic LUMIX GH5 4K 60P Video “HAND-CUT” by Griffin Hammond:
The new LUMIX GH5 again evolves to achieve 4K 60p / 50p ultra high-definition, smooth, video recording for the first time as a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera without a time limit. Furthermore, the LUMIX GH5 is also capable of 4:2:2 10-bit* 4K 30p / 25p internal video recording as well as outputting even more faithful color reproduction for the first time as a digital interchangeable lens camera. The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets users record overcranked / undercranked video in 4K (60 fps, maximum 2.5x slower) and FHD (180 fps, maximum 7.5x slower). The GH5 complies with V-LogL video recording with the purchase of the DMW-SFU1 Upgrade Software Key. Use of Upgrade Software Key also activates LUT (Look Up Table) in the camera so users can play videos recorded in V-LogL on the camera. Practical tools like Waveform Monitor and Vector Scope have also been added.

1. Improvement of AF performance

  • There were cases where focus point was shifted to the background while tracking the subject in AFC mode. The new firmware minimizes this problem.

Tracking performance in continuous AF has been improved by optimizing the tracking algorithm.
The subject is tracked even if it moves actively, such as in sports scenes where the focus previously shifted to the background.

  • There were cases where focus point was shifted to the background while tracking the subject in video recording. The new firmware minimizes this problem.

The accuracy of detecting the subject has been improved by optimizing the focus area settings and tracking speed.
The point of focus remains on the subject instead of shifting to the background.

2. Improvement of video recording operation

  • [One Push AE] failed to operate when [SS/Gain Operation] is set to [ANGLE/ISO] while shooting in Creative Video M mode. This bug has been fixed.

3. Fixed time code bug

  • There were cases where the time code was reset when the battery was replaced. This bug has been fixed.

4. Improvement of 6K PHOTO/4K PHOTO operation

  • There were cases where the intended frame was not cut out of the footage in 6K PHOTO/4K PHOTO. This bug has been fixed.

    – The image quality when using [V-LogL] for VFR recording in Creative Video mode has been improved.
    – The image quality when set to [i.Dynamic (Intelligent Dynamic Range Control)] has been improved.
  4. Improvement of operation under specific lighting conditions (fluorescent lights, etc.)
    – There were cases where the camera did not catch up to the brightness change smoothly under specfic lighting conditions such as fluorescent lights.
    The new firmware minimizes this problem.
