New firmware adds support for streaming 4K video over LAN and USB to Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 II camera
Panasonic has announced a firmware update for the Lumix DC-GH5 II. Version 1.1 adds support for 4K wired video streaming and makes a few small improvements.
The update will allow streaming over LAN using the H.265 codec, or over USB using the H.264 codec. In this case, 4K video can be with a frame rate of up to 60 fps.
The improvements mentioned above relate to shooting with Panasonic Lumix Tether software, the addition of Live View Composite, and the addition of 720 ° and 1080 ° selection values to the focus ring settings.
In addition, we fixed a bug due to which the camera freezes when transferring images to a PC via Wi-Fi in the 5 GHz band.
The new firmware will be published on November 29th.
