New GH4 Firmware 2.3 Ready to Download

This is the new GH4 firmware required to install V-log. You still have to purchase a V-log upgrade kit to enable V-log on your camera.

How to Install V-log on Your GH4 Camera

Panasonic Website to Order the V-Log Upgrade Kit

You can also order the V-Log upgrade kit via local camera stores when they have stock. Here in Canada Vistek expects to have this kit in stock by September 30th.

I've also heard that the GH4R camera ( that comes with V-log already installed with NO European 30 minute recording limit ) is starting to sell in Europe.


And now today you can get V-log L just through the mobile app then save it to a custom setting for free.

I think this is a bug from Panasonic which they have fixed with version 2.4 of the GH4's firmware. The access through the mobile app is only available if you stay in firmware version 2.3.
Also if you save the V-Log to a custom setting with the app you wont get 12 stops of DR but only 10 stops because it saves only the picture profile but not the dynamic range which can only be processed by the firmware you get with the upgrade from panasonic.
