Share

Panasonic has announced that it will release a major firmware update for the GH5-GH5s-G9 camera in October. Here are the expected improvements:

GH5 firmware:

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.

・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.

 

GH5s firmware:

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.

・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 stability during HDMI output
・Operating stability during VFR(Variable Frame Rate) recording through HDMI output has been improved.

3.Improvement of video recording performance
・[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.
・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.

G9 firmware:
