Monday is the big day for the new 422 10bit HD firmware we have all been waiting for and in my opinion should have shipped with the camera.

It was just officially confirmed that Panasonic will roll out the first one of the promised firmware updates for the GH5 on April 24, 2017.

The new firmware Ver.1.1 will add 4:2:2 10-bit Full HD video recording at 100Mbps alongside 10-bit 4:2:2 IPB capture when shooting at 3328 x 2496 resolution at 150Mbps in addition to the existing 4K video recording mode.

Other minor enhancements include fixing the malfunction of the exposure adjustment during live view standby when using [Variable Frame Rate] on certain occasions along with the weird appearance of afterimages when recording video under high ISO sensitivity settings while using [V-LogL].


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
