Re: New 2.1 firmware for GH4

Had a problem with the Micro HDMI cable - it seems to work fine.

No issues with 4K out to the Shogun on my end.

Re: New 2.1 firmware for GH4

Is this mainly for those who want to use a Shogun with their GH4 ?

Mainly for those who want to use any kind of external recording.

Seems like the Ninja Star will need a firmware update to work with the protocol for some reason. I would definitely send in a support ticket for that feature, as I have confirmed that it does not work with the GH4 start/stop and timecode protocols even though the Shogun works fine.

Re: New 2.1 firmware for GH4

Start/stop over HDMI needs to be activated in both GH4 and the shogun under "Trigger"

Re: New 2.1 firmware for GH4

I have been trying to update from 2.0 to 2.1 but all I get is the dreaded "no valid picture" whenever I try to upgrade. Never had this issue before and I have tried all method and solutions suggested several places without any luck, like these:

GH4 firmware update 2.1 and the dreaded "no valid picture to play" message ? Wilmington Video Production

Anyone can help please?

Thanks

Re: New 2.1 firmware for GH4

Yes, your firmware should be named GH4_VER and then the version number. I believe the one that starts with AH4 is for Japanese models.

I've been bit by that for the last two firmware updates. Seems like the Japanese firmware update goes live first followed by the USA/Europe one.

Re: New 2.1 firmware for GH4

Yeah I think you are right, but a lot of people are downloading the AH4.
