I have no idea. Some sort of sculpture sitting in the bay in Oslo.

Has anyone completed the firmware update?

I've never done it before so am a bit anxious about it. Have heard it can sometimes cause issues.

Thanks

Yeah. Did mine the other night. It's as easy as pie. Never heard of anyone having issues with a Panasonic firmware update. Format an SD card in your camera. Download & unzip the bin file from the update page. Copy the bin file directly to the card. Don't try & save it in a particular spot, just dump it on the card. Fully charge the camera battery. Insert card into slot 1. Turn on camera. Hit the play button, done. It's really really easy. You don't even have to update incrementally, you can jump from the earliest to the latest. I skipped the last one, nothing in it for me, this one just fired straight up.

No issues for me either and I took the latest update. It adds to focusability somewhat, I think it adds another focus mode for use in the C1/2/3 settings which I don't use. Come to think of it, I haven't been using the camera too much either :rolleyes:

A couple of things I really really like in the update. Focus peaking in all AF modes. Fantastic for shooting large aperture primes, it gives you a DOF preview without having to do anything. Peaking is always on when you half press the shutter. Then you can just grab the focus ring, give it a little tweak to shift the focus plane to wherever you like.
The other is the near/far focus preference. It's especially useful for shooting really close subjects, such as macro. A lot of the time, focus wants to jump to the contrasty background, if you set it to near, it will prioritise close subjects, rather than jumping tot he background. Really handy, tries it the other night.

That does sound good. Just home from a night shift, might do it when I wake up, if I'm alert enough.

Well, in a couple of hours I'm off to try out the focus peaking on moving subjects. Of the automotive variety. Keen to see if being able to actually see the focus plane will actually make any difference when shooting. Should make it easier to see if it's motion blur or missed focus at the least. I suspect a lot of my missed panning shots are simply lack of talent on the meat sack holding the camera.

Try setting it up not to shoot unless in focus. Ur not a meat sack, they are wrapped in a much coarser Jute material ;) Also look at shutter button settings, I still have the problem of the camera going off when I think I am waving my finger over the shutter button, in a position that looks as tho' it may settle on it.  :p

Not on the same topic, last night I bit the bullet and downloaded Silky Pix for Panasonic. It is supposed to be their top software but will only develope Panasonic camera shots. I found the whole process by them to be rather irritating, you have to join their org before you can buy. They want a lot of info but strangely do not ask for a cam rego number. Cost to me was $60.oo NZ via Paypal. Their open version is about 3 times as much.

Using the application is a convoluted process. The version of English is almost unfathomable and the methods used to operate are very different in some cases. An example, you will not find File>save or File>export. You do that in the develop menu after you have done your developing. The export/save tiff/jpg menu is not easy to navigate but perservere and you can do it. Eventually I guess you get used to it. It does have rather a good help menu system but again the language is a little hard to navigate on it's own.

I bought it primarily, and silly me should have done the 30 day trial first, but because I felt they should have the quirks of the camera already being automatically accounted for in the software and that seems to be the case. You can do some quite clever things successfully but not layers, well that I can see just now. Resetting your work is also easy when you realise that button with initialise on it actually means you reset everything. You can turn your pic left or right 90 degrees, but you have to go looking elsewhere if you want to straighten your horizon, it does do it tho.

This pic is a photo of 2 flowers exactly the same colour, the green has been enhanced as well and the blur is software induced. I lost the exif because again I did not understand what was meant in the instructions, I think I will get there. I find the speed ok, on my unit is as good as Luminar, some cases ACDSee and beeter than ON1 which I have ditched.
