(FT4) You likely will have to pay to get the V-LOG update on the GH4!

Share

A trusted source told me that he heard the V-LOG firmware update for the GH4 will not come for free. Panasonic will let you pay for it. I understand that V-LOG is a major improvement for the camera but I really beg Panasonic do reconsider that decision (if the rumor I got is correct). I may be naive but firmware upgrades should be free. And they should consider that:
1) Plenty of people will be upset by this (Negative publicity)
2) They will sell more GH4 cameras if V-LOG gets added for free
3) Other companies like Fuji (massive improvements on all X cameras) and Sony (XAVC-S on the A6000) provide those kind of updates for free!

So let’s just hope my source is wrong and if not…Panasonic may read this and will reconsider the decision.

A trusted source told me the new E-M10II will have only minor improvements over the current E-M10. One of the major new features is the addition of an electronic shutter mode.

(FT3) New menu interface for Olympus cameras coming soon via firmware upgrade?


Image on top shows the current menu on Oly cameras.

I just got this from an anynmous source:

I have been talking to Olympus EU support about the lack of a backup feature for saving menu customisations and was asking were Olympus listening at all to customers who were frustrated at their extensive customisations being nuked by firmware updates.
During the conversation the Oly staffer let it out that he could see the “user experience drastically improving in the not to distant future” when discussing the user interface.
I’m reading this to be a new easier menu structure coming soon with possibly a means to backup customisations.

TheCameraStoreTV confirms Leica Q is made with Panasonic!

TheCameraStoreTV posted the full Leica Q Hands-On Field Test video. At minute 1.20 they say the Leica Q is a combined project between Leica and Panasonic. It even uses Panasonic batteries (DMW-BLC12).

I dont’ think that means there will be a Panasonic version of that camera. But I would certainly be interested to know who made that Full Frame sensor. Leica said it’s not from CMOSIS or Sony….so could it be a new Panasonic FF sensor?
