Either C4K 120p/100p or 4K 120p/100p video can be output to an external device over HDMI. Through the firmware updates, Panasonic delivers future-ready solutions for more flexible filmmaking workflow using mirrorless cameras. Here are a few bullet points Panasonic laid out in its announcement:
- Please refer to the Blackmagic Design website for the information on the corresponding firmware version of the Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR.
- DaVinci Resolve or DaVinci Resolve Studio is required to play back and edit Blackmagic RAW data.
- When the [Rec Quality] is set to 5.7K/60p (50p) or C4K/120p (100p) and recording to a Blackmagic Design recorder, it is recommended to set the codec quality on the recorder to the following:
- When recording to an SSD: constant bitrate 5:1 or less
- When recording to an SD card: constant bitrate 8:1 or less
- All functions may not be available depending on the situation.
