      • All functions may not be available depending on the situation.
    2. Improved AF performance
      • [AF-ON: Near Shift] and [AF-ON: Far Shift] functions have been added. [AF-ON: Near Shift] preferably focuses on a subject nearby while [AF-ON: Far Shift] preferably focuses on a subject far away.
      • Focus Peaking function is available in any AF mode.
      • It is possible to set continuous AF on the live view screen in Creative Video mode or in other video recording mode when the video recording area is displayed.

      • AE can be locked with the [AF/AE LOCK] button when ISO Auto is set in M mode.
      • [MODE1] has been added to the Live View Boost function, which increases the frame rate for smooth image display to enable easier manual focusing.
    5. Improved operational stability
      • There were cases where Backup Recording using the Double Card Slot Function stopped during writing. This bug has been fixed.
      • There were cases where the images shot vertically did not rotate on playback. This bug has been fixed.
      • Operational stability of image stabilizer has been improved. (When [Image Stabilizer] > [E-Stabilization(Video)] and [Boost I.S.(Video)] is ON. ).

  • Guys, whats the difference between Lumix names, like DC-GH5L, DC-GH5EB-K, GH5K and so on..?

  • K is kit, B is black. Not sure about the L....tempted to say with a Leica lens but no idea.

  • Thank you Dr Dave. And how about regions? I mean is every GH5 switchable from PAL to NTSC and back?

  • The last time we used one in the Netherlands, we switched from 25p to 23.976. But AFAIK there are other variations besides Europe and US--so double check if you need a specific frame rate.
