The one update feature that caught my eye was the ability to produce smooth apertures, great for video work till you discover that this only applies to one lens the Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7 LEICA DG VARIO-SUMMILUX.

  2. Improved compatibility with the Panasonic Remote Shutter DMW-RS2.- The video REC switch on the Remote Shutter can be disabled in the camera’s custom menu.
  3. Improved operational stability- There were cases where the headphone volume did not change in real time when [Headphone Volume] registered in “My Menu” has been changed. This bug has been fixed.

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.

One thought on “Downloading the new Panasonic GH5 Firmware v2.5

  1. I think the best camera firmware update of late is the Olympus EM1 MK2 ver.3 update.
    Now the C-AF autofocus is simply fantastic – using phase detection. Good-bye AF hunting! In fact it’s so good I haven’t been using my GH5 since and given up the idea of going back to Canon.
