Panasonic has announced firmware update 1.1 for the Lumix G85 / G80 / G81 camera which promises to improve the image stabiliser during motion picture recording. The firmware arrives following a series of complaints by users (for example, here and here) about the “sticky” nature of the stabilisation mechanism whilst panning in video mode.
A second unexpected firmware update for the GH4 fixes a few bugs:
- When the camera is used with the Battery Grip, an error message pops up if the remaining power of the battery in the Battery Grip is low.
- With a use of Panasonic H-RS100400 (LEICA DG VARIO-ELMAR 100-400mm / F4.0-6.3 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S.) or some Olympus interchangeable lenses, the monitor blacks out when the user tries consecutive shooting in manual mode in AFC setting.
