Panasonic has announced the new firmware version 2.2 for Panasonic LUMIX GH6 mirrorless camera to enhance performance and usability. The camera can output video at up to 60p framerates and ProRes 422 HQ but cannot record internally while recording to an external drive.

The firmware program will be available on the LUMIX Global Customer Support website at 9 p.m. EDT on September 27, 2022.
