Panasonic has announced the up-coming release of Firmware Ver.2.2 for its Lumix GH6 mirrorless camera, which provides enhancements to video performance and usability.

The new firmware supports direct recording and playback of video/photo using an external SSD connected via USB. This will make it possible to record high-quality, low-compression Apple ProRes 422 HQ (maximum 1.9Gbps) or high-bitrate, large-volume 4:2:2 10-bit All-Intra directly to a USB drive (SSD) with up to 2TB capacity. Data files recorded on the SSD can be easily transferred to PC via USB, which minimises backup work, making the post-production process more efficient. This much-anticipated update will streamline workflow for professional creators.

The new firmware will be available to download here 11 a.m. AEST on 27 September 2022.
