Panasonic DMW-SFU1 Lumix V-Log L Function Firmware Upgrade Kit
Key Features
  • For Lumix GH5, G9, GH4, FZ2500 Cameras
  • Adds V-Log L Gamma & 10-Bit Recording
  • Wide Dynamic Range of up to 12 Stops
  • Improved Color Matching with Varicam
Maximize the dynamic range of select cameras with the DMW-SFU1 Lumix V-Log L Function Firmware Upgrade Kit from Panasonic. This code, which is delivered on a physical card, allows you to easily install the V-Log L gamma onto the camera, giving you a flat profile that provides a wide dynamic range of up to 12 stops as well as 10-bit internal recording (for GH5 and G9 only). The addition of this gamma also allows users to better match color with existing Varicam systems that feature standard V-Log, as both profiles utilize the same characteristic curve and LUT.

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.

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.

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.

Does what it should

It's a little overpriced, but such is life. B&H at least made it very quick and easy to get this on my camera.

Does anyone have real-world experience to offer in pairing a GH5 loaded with the V-Log update with an EVA1? I understand that they *should* match well; that's one of the reasons you'd buy this upgrade. But, in practice, do they?
Asked by: Lance
They definitely match well.
