Panasonic has announced a major firmware update for the Panasonic GH6. The new Version 2.0 firmware adds a couple of features that customers have been asking for since the camera was first announced. Namely, 4K 60fps ProRes 422 HQ capture internally as well as full resolution 5.7K and 4K DCI RAW over HDMI output at 60fps and 120fps respectively. And for anamorphic shooters, you also get 5.8K and 4.4K RAW over HDMI.
For 5.7K video, you get up to 60fps and for 4K, you get up to 120fps raw over HDMI. For anamorphic, it’s half that rate. So, 5.8K goes up to 30fps while 4.4K is limited to 60fps. Naturally, you’ll need an external recorder capable of capturing these framerates and resolutions, which means the Atomos Ninja V or Ninja V+ devices if you want to record ProRes RAW.
