New firmware for Lumix G9 version 2.4.
1

I downloaded the new firmware, version 2.4 (came out June 9th) for my Lumix G9.  Easy enough to do.  I verified that I have the updated version.  This is to help with human face/animal detection in the AF mode 1-area foal point.  You can have either human or human/animal detection, on or off.  I saw a video on Youtube and of how this is supposed to work in video and still photos.

It is supposed to put an orange box around that subject.  Problem is, I can not get it to work.  Funny thing is, is that if I point my camera at the tv and a human face is there, the orange box appears.  When I am outside, when I point my camera at a human, dog, or bird, no orange box appears.

I was shooting in aperture priority with the 100-400mm lens and the 50-200mm lens, both of which I updated. I  tried to "reload" the new version again, but apparently, that does not work.

Does anyone have any ideas about what might be going on?  TIA for any advice.
