Firmware updates for G9, GH5 and GH5S
PANASONIC has rolled out a new set of firmware upgrades for its three top- of-the-line compact system cameras. The updates bring enhanced performance and usability, including to autofocus performance and sound quality for video shooting.
A new L. Monochrome D & Grain effect has also been added to the Photo Styles options across all three cameras. The effect captures even darker tones and greater contrast, with grain effects available in different strengths for all monochrome settings.
Live View Boost is added to the G9 and the GH5, meaning the screen and LCD monitor can be displayed brighter than the image recorded to help check the composition when shooting in low light. The GH5 also gets a Night Mode, whereby all the information on the camera screen is displayed in red, so users are not disturbed by white light emission.
All three cameras see improved AF performance – for the GH5 and the G9 this means increased tracking AF performance, while for the GH5S, autofocusing for low-light and low- contrast photo shooting has been improved. In addition, the GH5 and G9 will have up to 20x magnification available in MF Assist mode. The G9’s High Resolution Mode now has an extended aperture range and improved motion correction.
Sound quality has also been enhanced in all three systems by optimising the performance of the internal noisecancelling microphone.
All firmware is free and available to download now.
