September 15th, 2011

DSLR and mirrorless cameras have taken off in a big way in
terms of video production.  They’ve been
used to complement traditional video cameras in film and even replaced them in
some shows and movies.

Panasonic’s newest firmware update reflects that change and
“enables seven of its Lumix G Series interchangeable lenses to be HD
lenses.”  What the company means by
this is that the lenses will now track focus and offer silent focus and
exposure control while you’re shooting. 
Image stabilization is also increased while shooting video.

Lenses receiving the new
firmware include:

  • Lumix G 14mm / F2.5 ASPH. (H-H014)
  • Lumix G Vario 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / Mega O.I.S.
    (H-FS014042)
  • Lumix G Fisheye 8mm / F3.5 (H-F008)
  • Lumix G Vario 100-300mm / F4.0-5.6 / Mega O.I.S.
    (H-FS100300)
  • Lumix G Vario 7-14mm / F4.0 ASPH. (H-F007014)
  • Lumix G Vario 14-45mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / Mega O.I.S.
    (H-FS014045)
  • Lumix G Vario 45-200mm / F4.0-5.6 / Mega O.I.S. (H-FS045200)
