Panasonic has announced an upcoming firmware for the Panasonic S1 and S5 that brings full-frame 5.9K 12-Bit RAW over HDMI video capabilities to the Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR. There is a slight caveat for S1 users, though. S1 users will need to have purchased the $200 DMW-SFU2 Upgrade Software Key to unlock the extra video features of the S1 – but aside from that, it’s a free update for those users.
Owners of the Panasonic S5 will not have to buy that software key and will just get the features as soon as the firmware becomes available – which is expected on July 12th and will become available on the Panasonic Lumix Global Customer Support Website.
