Is the autofocus improved over previous LUMIX cameras?
Asked by: Tyler
The current modern generation of Panasonics (S1H/S5/G9/GH5mk2/etc with the very latest firmware) has greatly improved autofocus by a huge margin over their older generation of cameras from Panasonic. (leave behind your preconceived notions of what Panasonic AF is! If they'd released this level of performance a few years earlier, everyone would be praising Panasonic for having amazing autofocus)

Does this camera support on rig remote control of focus, aperture, zoom, or start/stop via Panasonic or LANC control?
Asked by: Mira
The Panasonic Lumix BS1H Box Cinema Camera and the available remote port on the side of the camera can offer part control. That is, starting and stopping the recording, aperture adjustment, and manual focus operation. Alternative methods of control are smartphone and computer connection, either over USB-C or ethernet. Another method is control of the camera over USB-C using a display like the PORTKEYS LH5P II 5.5" Touchscreen Monitor with Camera Control for Panasonic GH5/G5S/S1/BGH1.
