“Panasonic is proud to announce the release of firmware updates for the LUMIX S Series full-frame mirrorless cameras DC-S1H (Ver.2.4), DC-S1 (Ver.2.0), DC-S1R (Ver.1.8), DC-S5 (Ver.2.2) and the Micro Four Thirds box-style mirrorless camera DC-BGH1 (Ver.2.0) to further enhance their functions, performance and usability. As firmware updates are a key component of the value-added service of LUMIX, Panasonic is committed to addressing and continuing to offer them as much as possible.
As a video-centric flagship camera of the S Series, the LUMIX S1H has been evolved with several firmware updates in the past. In addition to Apple ProRes RAW recording, the S1H complies with 5.9K RAW video data output and recording as Blackmagic RAW on Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR as a full-frame mirrorless camera for the first time in the industry*. Providing two alternatives for RAW workflow, the S1H corresponds more to the wide-ranging creative needs. This firmware will also be available for free of charge.”
