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.
