Product Review | Panasonic GH5 Firmware Update

Panasonic GH5 Firmware Update

As many of you already know, I am a huge fan of the Panasonic GH series, and have been onboard since the GH3. I love the quality and price point of the video that comes off these cameras. It’s incredible. The recently released GH5 is already a workhorse in our studio. Check it out in action in my article this month about my commercial shoot at Delmonico Steakhouse.

I love when manufacturers continue to push their product in between releases through firmware updates. This keeps the product fresh and relevant, and kindles even more loyalty to the brand.

Here are the details of Panasonic’s free new firmware upgrade.

LUMIX Tether USB PC Tethering

This allows you to shoot tethered to a PC and control the camera and see the results on a larger screen. This is perfect for commercial work or other studio work where seeing the results and details is crucial.

Improved Auto Tracking Focus

This is a huge one. Auto focus on both video and photo has been improved, especially in low light conditions. In video, the tracking has been improved as well.

Bluetooth Remote Control With Image App

The Bluetooth Remote Control function can be used with Image App

4:2:2 10bit

4:2:2 10-bit ALL-Intra video recording mode is added to 4K/FHD video recording.
