GH3 firmware update coming in July...

Looks like we're getting an update soon...

LINK

Firmware features:

  • "Low Light AF" is added that makes it possible to set focus on the subject in low-lit situations (-3EV). This function is popular in GF6/G6.
  • "Silent Mode" is added which suppresses electronic shutter, shutter sound, operation sound and flash emission with a single setting.
  • "Exposure Comp. Reset" is added which resets the setting of exposure compensation to ±0 whenever the camera is turned off or the shooting mode is changed.
  • Connection problem with Apple Mac computers via Wi-Fi is fixed.

Thank for the news

Still no focus peaking which is a disappointment, but I wonder how does the new lowlight AF fare..

If the feedback is good I'll do this one. I skipped the first, but if low light focus is improved that is a plus even though I've not had much trouble with it personally.

They said somewhere that different hardware is needed too.

Re: GH3 firmware update coming in July...

I also skipped the first update. Didn't offer anything I needed. But this update looks more promising. I wonder if I'll need to update with the first firmware before doing the second, or will the second update include features of the first?
