Ver.2.0
[Power Save LVF Shooting] is automatically set to [1 sec] after updating the camera's firmware to version 2.0.
(This makes the camera go into sleep mode in 1 sec in a standby mode.)
Before use, please restore the setting manually when turning on the camera after updating the firmware. Press [MENU/SET] button and select [Setup] ⇒ [Economy] ⇒ [Power Save LVF Shooting].
  1. Compatibility with "LUMIX Tether" PC software
    This new firmware enables GH5 tethered shooting via USB, using "LUMIX Tether" PC software. Users can control the camera by connecting it to a PC via USB.
  2. Improved auto focus performance
    - Auto focus performance for subjects with low contrast in photo shooting is improved.
    - Tracking auto focus performance in video recording is improved.
    - The customized AF area can be continuously displayed in [Multi AF] and [Custom Multi AF] during live-view.
    - The AF area in [Multi AF] can be moved to the other edge (side, top or bottom) when it reaches one edge.
    - The start point of AF lock can be set on the live view screen in advance in [AF Tracking].
    - The AF area can be moved while the shutter button is half-pressed or while recording in [Burst Mode], [6K PHOTO] and [4K PHOTO].
  3. Improved performance in [6K PHOTO] and [4K PHOTO]
    - The waiting time to start the next burst shooting sequence after [6K Burst] and [4K Burst] is shortened to less than half the time.
    - [Loop Rec] is available in [6K PHOTO].
    * Use of Panasonic SD Memory Card with Video Speed Class 90 is recommended for [Loop Rec] of [6K PHOTO].
  4. An additional ALL-Intra Video Recording mode
    - 4:2:2,10-bit ALL-Intra video recording mode is added to 4K/FHD video recording.
    * Use of SD Memory Card with Video Speed Class 60 or higher is recommended for 4K ALL-Intra video recording. Operation is confirmed with Panasonic SD Memory Card with Video Speed Class 90.
  5. 4K HDR video recording
    - [HLG] (Hybrid Log Gamma) is added to [Photo Style]. HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a mode to reproduce both bright part and dark part in an image, making it look just as human eyes see. The camera records video with a designated gamma curve compatible with ITU-R BT.2100, and you can now choose Hybrid LogGamma (HLG) in [Photo Style].
    - A low-bit-rate recording mode 4K HEVC for HLG was added. This enables playback on AV equipment compatible with the HEVC compression format, such as Panasonic 4K HDR TVs.
  6. Enhancement of the Anamorphic video recording mode
    - High-Resolution Anamorphic mode, which enables video recording in 18-mega effective pixels, is added.
    * Recorded in HEVC
    - [Anamorphic Desqueeze Display] was added, which lets you view an enlarged image in Cinescope size while recording with 2.0x and 1.33x Anamorphic lens.
    - [Video Guide Line] is added to display the image in a variety of aspects, such as Cinescope, 16:9 and 1:1 while recording video. This can be used not only in Anamorphic mode but also in other video recording mode.
  7. Enhancement of Body I.S. (Image Stabilizer)
    - [I.S. Lock(video)] is added. This powerfully compensates for handshake when the viewing angle is fixed.
    - A new handshake correction mode is added, which provides optimum correction when using 2.0x and 1.33x Anamorphic lens.
    - In VFR (Variable Frame Rate) shooting mode, there were cases where the image stabilization did not operate when non-Panasonic interchangeable lens is used. This bug has been fixed.
  8. Correction of white balance setting
    - When the K (Kelvin) value was changed after adjusting the color temperature with 2-axis white balance compensation, the setting was reset. This bug has been fixed.
  9. Improved usability of Time Lapse Shot
    - The time to finish shooting and the number of recordable pictures are displayed on the stand-by screen.
  10. Improved usability of Power Save LVF
    - Power Save LVF can now be used during all stand-by display options.
