Re: Expanding my Gear Camera advice please

Anyone installed the latest 1.2 firmware on the g80? My camera got a lot more silent after that update, before the IBIS was quite noisy, worse then my gx80, now they sound the same.

Updated both the GX80 and G80 with the new firmware and both barely make a sound. Haven't done a full test yet, but initial handling shows a marked improvement. Perhaps as part of the procedure, I could hear an audible thud from the camera on my work desk once the update was complete. First time I heard it, it was from the G80; it made me jump and I turned round thinking something had fallen onto the desk, but no it was the camera. Heard the same thud from the GX80, just a bit quieter. Not sure how it ties into the update, but thought I'd mention it as I did wonder if something had happened to the camera.

My g80 had a very noisy IBIS when I first got it, a grinding sound that you could clearly hear from a meter distance in a silent room, on my gx80 you could only hear the IBIS if you held your ear close to it which is why I was disappointed about the g80. Good that the firmware update solved this.
