Updating panasonic firmware
Unfortunately, at this moment the availability of V60 rated SD cards is not great.We are expecting this to change during the coming months.
It brings many new features to this already very capable mirrorless camera.By using the LUMIX Tether software (for Windows), the camera can be fully controlled remotely (also remote shooting). A new 4:2:2 10-bit ALL-Intra video recording mode was added to 4K/FHD video recording, in 4K with a bitrate of 400Mbps and in FHD with a bitrate of 200Mbps.It is recommended to use an SD memory card with Video Speed Class 60 (V60 – minimum writing speed of 60MB/s or better yet, a faster V90 SD card). Hybrid Log Gamma is considered the mainstream way of shooting HDR because it provides backwards compatibility to Rec.709 monitors, yet shows a wider dynamic range on HDR monitors, although it’s almost impossible to grade.The Big GH5 firmware is now available for download at support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/dsc/download/fts/And the good news is that there is also a firmware update for the GH4, 30mm and 42,5mm lenses: GH5 firmware update features list: Whenever you go for a shopping just click on those links and buy whatever you want and I will get a small commission for it without you having to pay one single penny extra: Amazon.de, Calumetphoto.de, e All these modes make it easy to capture the spur-of-the-moment in a 8-megapixel equivalent picture shot at 30 fps.
All you have to do after shooting is is to pick up the frame you want in the camera.
The camera records HLG video with a designated gamma curve compatible with ITU-R BT.2100, the colour standard for HDR.
A low bit-rate recording mode 4K HEVC (H265) for HLG was also added.
[Anamorphic Desqueeze Display] lets users view an enlarged image in Cinescope size while recording with a 2.0x and 1.33x Anamorphic lens.
[Video Guide Line] can display the image in a variety of aspects, such as Cinescope, 16:9 and 1:1 while recording video. Lock(video)] compensates for handshake when the viewing angle is fixed.
That feature is getting a bit better with the update — Panasonic says that after downloading the firmware, the wait time before shooting the next burst has been cut in half.
