6-Axis Image Stabilization Updates for Most Lumix Lenses
Recently Panasonic introduced updates for most Lumix lenses so they can utilize the amazing new 6-axis Image Stabilization on the recently announced Lumix GX8 camera.
To get the same feature in all other Lumix cameras you have to update your lenses’ firmware. The firmware updates have now been released. To get to the updates you have to go to this page first Firmware Update Instructions and scroll all the way to the very bottom of the page. At the bottom you have to click on ACCEPT to get to the page that actually has the downloads which is here: Lumix lens Firmware Updates. But do the first page first or you won’t be allowed to access downloads. Finding these downloads took me ten minutes to figure out. I’ve talked to my contacts at Panasonic about how difficult this process is. If you find it the same please post your comments in this blog so we can help encourage them to make firmware downloads easier.
If you really want to see how difficult the whole process is, pretend you don’t have the links above, do a google search and try to go through the entire process on your own. It’s not easy to say the least. Wished they would make this easier for all of our Lumix users.
