Panasonic GH4 firmware version 2.2, which provides a 4:3 anamorphic image capture at 3328 x 2496 video resolution, is now available. Additional features in the new firmware update include the ability to manually select a 1/16,000 second shutter speed using the electronic shutter of the GH4.
Additionally, firmware version 2.2 fixes the issue in which video recorded in the AVCHD format gets misdated when importing to some editing software.
Zack Arias posted this nice little perspective review on what factored into his choice of the Panasonic GH4 as his dedicated video camera. He talks about other choices from Canon, Sony and Blackmagic and why he stuck with Fuji for stills and has two completely separate systems. He goes into much greater detail on the reasons for choosing the GH4 system for video on his blog here at Dedpxl.
