Panasonic has announced that it will be releasing firmware updates for the Lumix Digital Single Lens Mirrorless cameras S1R, S1H and S1 to enhance functions and usability, by the end of 2020.
The new firmware would enable the S1R to record 5K video, making the most of its high-resolution image sensor. The release also states that the AF technology of the new Lumix S5 will be available on the S1R, S1H and S1. In addition to the eye, face and body, the head will also be separately recognised by real-time detection technology to provide precise focussing and tracking, even when the subject moves quickly, turns his/her back to the camera, tilts his/her head or moves far away from the camera.
Panasonic has further stated that the firmware update shall apply to its new and old products alike.
