Panasonic has announced another firmware update for the Lumix DMC-GH4, this one following closely after the update it pushed out in September enabling tethering and 4K photo mode. The software is scheduled to release on an unspecified day in December, and will bring with it changes revolving around video output options.

The newest GH4 update will bring Recording Start/Stop (RSS) and time code embedding to HDMI video output when using an Atomos product. Additionally, the update will allow for full 1080 HD 30p/25p native output over HDMI and Full HD 30PsF/25PsF output through SDI when recording video in Full HD 30p/25p.
