Re: GH3 Firmware Update

It's all good. Doesn't have everything being wished for, but no concerns.

Good luck

Re: GH3 Firmware Update

Version 1.2

1. "Low Light AF" is added that makes it possible to set focus on the subject in low-lit situations (-3EV).
2. "Silent Mode" is added which suppresses electronic shutter, shutter sound, operation sound and flash emission with a single setting.
3. "Exposure Comp. Reset" is added which resets the setting of exposure compensation to 0 whenever the camera is turned off or the shooting mode is changed.
4. Performance of AF is enhanced in use with H-PS14042 and H-PS45175.
5. Connection problem with Apple Mac computers via Wi-Fi is fixed.



A big MEH. Nothing that interests me.

Re: GH3 Firmware Update

Agree. I probably won't bother with this update.

Clearly, the most important thing they need to fix is the disappearance of the audio meters from the LCD after a few seconds of shooting.

After that, they need to give purchasers of their $1000+ flagship camera the $750 G6's focus peaking capability (The G6's NFC would be nice too - but that probably requires a chip).

Come on, Panasonic.
