Panasonic has launched a new Lumix firmware update which makes for easier use of the DJI's RS3 Pro gimbal and DJI LiDAR – and eliminates the need for the focus motor accessory or calibration. Panasonic announced it as a new partnership with DJI under the message, "Creating new excitement together, transcend the boundaries of stills and video.

The first fruit of the new partnership sees is a firmware update for the Lumix GH6 and GH5 II that enables expanded compatibility with the DJI RS3 Pro gimbal. The update of note is that the cameras will now support “DJI LiDAR AF” in the combination of the DJI gimbal “DJI RS3 Pro” and “DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS)”.
