Panasonic has released another firmware update for its Lumix DC-GH5 camera in response to customer feedback.
Version 2.1 of the camera’s firmware rolls back some of the changes made in previous Ver. 2.0 firmware, which reduced the default Power Save LVF Shooting setting for the electronic viewfinder to one second after a period of inactivity in order to conserve battery power. The Power Save LVF Shooting will be set to [OFF] when the firmware Ver. 2.0 is updated to Ver. 2.1. Users who wish to enable Power Save LVF Shooting can set it manually by selecting a designated time.
Another bug fix involved the setting of the picture quality adjustment in Photo Style to -5 when selecting the MP4 HEVC(AAC) recording mode. The parameters of picture quality adjustment in Photo Style will now be reset to ±0 when the firmware Ver. 2.0 is updated to Ver. 2.1. Camera owners will again be able to adjust the picture quality in Photo Style manually, when they wish.
The final fixes involve bugs that prevented the V-LogL View Assist function from working and another that prevented AVCHD videos from being divided in the camera. The new firmware fixed both bugs.
