This morning I got word or should I say a lot of words that a back door has opened in getting V Log L for free on the GH4. I was surprised as hell to hear this so I had to try it for myself and yes it works.
I kind of feel bad giving this info away but it’s already out in the wild so here goes. First off I paid for the update but it hasn’t shipped yet and the method is kind a strange on getting the code to apply V-Log L. I don’t think this will last but knowing the internet the firmware update will be hosted and given away even if Panasonic pulls it from the site. The Panasonic Image App might be pulled as well but that could take some time. Today the internet wins. Sorry Panasonic. With that said here goes.
First thing I had to do was install the V2.3 firmware update. You also need the Image App.
If you don’t have the Image app download it from the app store . It’s called Panasonic Image App.
Connect your GH4 to the app. This is a real PITA because the app sucks to get it connected. You have to establish the connection with WiFi. You can figure this step out because to be honest I had a lot of problems. I did get it to connect finally.
In the app select Remote Operation.
Tap the Q.MENU option
Select Photo Style
Select V-LOG L
The camera now has the profile.
So you don’t have to do this again every time you power down the camera and the remote you can actual save it.
With the camera still in WiFi remote control and V-LOG L enabled in the camera go to the GH4 camera menu.
Custom/ Cust. Set Mem and select C1 or C2. Now the the GH4 has the profile saved and will always come back.
I haven’t tried it out yet but one thing I noticed is the base ISO is 400. You cant go any lower.
