Create Highlights with Serial Extraction
Analyzes the footage you have recorded, extracting the sections that are the most active or have the clearest images. The extracted clips are then edited together automatically in to a short video segment
Loop Recording

Remaining Battery Indication on Main Unit
When you turn the power ON, Wi-Fi mode indicators on the main unit light up for five seconds. This lets you check the battery level without using a smartphone
Level Shot with Three Modes
The level shot function has been updated to support three modes: Strong, Standard, and OFF
Delay-Start Record
Waits three seconds from when you press the Record button before it actually starts recording to give to a moment to prepare
Mic ON/OFF Toggle via App
Using the Panasonic Image App , allows you to choose whether or not to record sound
Level Shot Check
This allows you to preview how well the Level Shot function works for a particular scene, before you start recording
    You can check if you have the latest firmware by connecting the camcorder to a device running the Panasonic Image App, then selecting "Menu" -> "Camera Setup" -> "Device Info". At this point you will be advised to update if you are not already running the latest version.
