a few ramblings about the new GH " S" firmware .....

so after upgrading the GH5S to latest firmware I decided to see if the animal detect could now perform miracles

it was kind of a mixed bag

if the animal was a Human then the upgrade was amazing ..... locking on to the human eye like a Sony A7iii ..... and REAL sticky

if we move on to mammals it was hit and miss

Elephants ,,,, no / Tigers .... no / Camel ...... no

but this guy here made the GH5s lock to the eye instantly

birds were a disappointment ... no way was the animal detect going to locate a small bird in foliage ..... I had to resort to a small zone area

Fish ...... no way !

it had no idea what it was seeing and again back to zone focus

this little guy seemed to lock on head focus

this little bugger locked on head focus ..... but not eye

this little willy winker was running wild on a wall and I have no idea what it is

it locked on the total lizard body

took a few images of Baboons which did lock eye focus but came out bad because of chain link fence in the way

so it was a mixed bag - for people its fantastic - big slow  animals its great - little birds or birds in flight ....... not so much

any comments or criticisms ?
