Panasonic Lumix GH5 - Firmware 2.0 angekündigt

|

Im Rahmen der IFA hat Panasonic, neben vielen neuen Produkten aus dem Audio-Bereich, auch das lang erwartete und sehr umfangreiche Sommer-Firmware-Update für die Lumix GH5 angekündigt. Ganze vier A4-Seiten an neuen Funktionen und behobenen Fehlern umfasst die Änderung.

Panasonic Lumix GH5

Für alle technisch interessierten Nutzer haben wir die kompletten Changelogs ans Ende dieser News gestellt. Die größten Neuerungen wollen wir jedoch kurz aufführen:

Die [[ASIN:B01N7RZQ0G|Panasonic Lumix GH5]] wird Tethering unterstützen. Dazu wird, zeitgleich zur Firmware, die PC-Anwendung LUMIX Tether angeboten. Auch die 6K- und 4K-PHOTO-Funktionen sollen sich fernsteuern lassen.

Die GH5 bekommt ein weiteres Farb- und Gammaprofil für Videoaufnahmen, genauer Hybrid-Log-Gamma (HLG) für HDR-Aufnahmen, kompatibel zu ITU-R BT.2100. Entsprechende Aufnahmen sollen sich zudem im platzsparenden HEVC-Codec abspeichern und direkt auf dem Fernseher abspielen lassen. Wir probieren dazu noch weitere Informationen zu erhalten.

Für Filmer steht nun ferner eine All-Intra-Kodierung für 4K- und Full-HD-Aufnahmen mit 10 bit Farbtiefe bereit. Im Falle von 4K-Aufnahmen bedeutet dies etwa 400 Mbit/s und damit mindestens SD-Speicherkarten mit der Geschwindigkeitsklasse v60.

Der Autofokus soll in diversen Situationen besser funktionieren (unter anderem der Video-Autofokus und der Autofokus bei kontrastarmen Motiven) und diverse Feinheiten der Tracking-AF-Steuerung wurden angepasst.

Die Firmware 2.0 soll ab Ende September 2017 zum Download verfügbar sein.

Panasonic Lumix GH5 Firmware 2.0: Changelog

1. Compatibility with "LUMIX Tether" PC software

The 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 a USB. It lets you view the image on a large PC screen while shooting, which is helpful in commercial photoshoots of portraits, products, etc where continuous confirmation is required.  Using [6K PHOTO] or [4K PHOTO] users can start and stop video recording with the tethered shooting. It is also possible to choose the folder to save the image files to the PC.

  • Auto focus [AF] performance is improved for subjects with low contrast in photo shooting.
  • Tracking auto focus performance in video recording is improved.
  • The customised 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 of [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].

5. 4K HDR video recording

  • [HLG] (Hybrid Log Gamma) is added to [Photo Style]. HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a mode to reproduce both the bright part and dark part in an image, making it appear as the human eye would see. The camera records video with a designated gamma curve compatible with ITU-R BT.2100, and users can now choose Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) in [Photo Style].
  • A low bit-rate recording mode 4K HEVC for HLG has been 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

New High-Resolution Anamorphic Mode

*1 "High Resolution Anamorphic Mode" records motion picture with an aspect ratio suited for an anamorphic lens, 4:3. The effective picture size for this mode is equivalent to the number of pixels produced by 6K (approx. 6,000 (horizontal) x 3,000 (vertical)) images (approx. 18 megapixels).

  • [Anamorphic Desqueeze Display] has been added, which lets you view an enlarged image in Cinescope size while recording with 2.0x and 1.33x Anamorphic lenses.
  • [Video Guide Line] has been added to display the image in a variety of aspects, such as Cinescope, 16:9 and 1:1 while recording video. It can be used not only in Anamorphic mode but also in other video recording modes.

7. Enhancement of Body I.S. (Image Stabilizer)

  • [I.S. Lock(video)] has been added. This compensates for handshake when the viewing angle is fixed.
  • A new handshake correction mode has been added, which provides optimum correction when using 2.0x and 1.33x Anamorphic lenses.

8. Correction of white balance setting

  • When the K (Kelvin) value was changed after adjusting the colour temperature with 2-axis white balance compensation, the setting was reset. This bug has been fixed.
