Updating your camera is a stepped process similar to updating your firmware; although, you will need this activation code along with your camera's serial code to generate an upgrade key from Panasonic's Update Portal. This upgrade code is also region specific and is designed to work with cameras distributed in the USA.

Hello, a question when activating the vlog on a gh5 also enables internal recording in mp4 or mov 3840 x 2160 59.94p 4:2:2 10bits, thank you very much

The V-LogL works quite well

The upgrade kit worked as promised. Installation on my Lumix G9 was easy if you carefully follow the instructions. There is also an in-camera Lut to preview the footage as graded.

V-Log upgrade was definitely worth it

The upgrade process went smoothly. The V-log L gives me a whole other choice in filming styles. Panosonic includes a lut preview in the camera which can be turned on.

Stepping up my color grading!

I'm very much looking forward to grading 4.2.2 10-bit footage with this color profile. Even though I usually shoot in Cinelike-D, this will surely help me get to another level.

Instant Cinema

At first I was against purchasing this expensive upgrade. I recently purchased the BGH1 to work alongside the GH5. The kit turns my GH5 into a instant cinema camera.

A whole new camera

After purchasing the V-Log upgrade I don't think I could ever use another preset, furthermore I can't believe I hadn't started using it sooner!

Unlocks cool stuff.

If you own a compatible camera, you should REALLY get this upgrade. We use a GH5 where I work, and while I like the feature set, I never loved with the images it produced. The V-log upgrade completely changed that. The colors are an absolute treat to work with, and grade very nicely, even when mixed with other cameras. Panasonic's limiting image space is completely let loose and allowed to take advantage of the full dynamic range. The only negative thing I can say is that I wish this upgrade was free, and that the process of upgrading was easier. Panasonic supplies instructions on how to activate the code that you get, but they're a bit of a chore to follow. Absolutely worth the effort it takes to make it happen, but unfortunate that it's such a convoluted process.
