New Upgrade Offers Exceptional Enhancement of Performance and Functions
Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Panasonic, at the end of September 2017, will be releasing the new version 2.0 firmware upgrade for its LUMIX DC-GH5 camera. According to Panasonic, this enhancement is not just a firmware update, but an exceptional boost to the camera’s performance, in order to satisfy professional GH5 users.
Panasonic, having interviewed front-line photographers, and cinematographers worldwide after they had actually used the GH5, identified what was needed in the field, and this upgrade will provide the functionality that are in demand.
Upgrade means a better compatibility with the “LUMIX Tether” pc software firmware, which will enable the GH5 to be tethered via a USB, while shooting. Users can now 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. Furthermore, an additional ALL-Intra video mode has been added to the 4K/FHD video recording as well.
This 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 stabilizer 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 & 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.
