Panasonic Releases Firmware Update Program for GH6

Newark, NJ – Panasonic has announced that the company will release the firmware update program Ver.2.0 for the LUMIX GH6 to enhance performance and usability. The firmware program will be available at LUMIX Global Customer Support website at UTC 1 a.m. on July 5, 2022.

Together with ATOMOS, a global company that creates innovative technologies and cloud services for filmmakers everywhere, Panasonic created new firmware which enables the output of up to 5.8K / 29.97p and C4K / 119.88p RAW video data over HDMI to be recorded as Apple ProRes RAW on ATOMOS NINJA V and NINJA V+ devices.

First introduced in February 2022, the highly-regarded LUMIX GH6 has been recognized for its exceptional video performance and handling among existing and new GH users worldwide. Over time, the GH6 will evolve with firmware updates to further enhance its performance and usability to meet the changing needs of creators.
