GH5 to Get Bump to 20fps RAW via Firmware Update?

GH5 to Get Bump to 20fps RAW via Firmware Update?

The GH5 currently shoots 12fps RAW, a respectable frame rate though some may claim that given it’s M4/3 sensor more should be possible, and that is exactly what a rumor by a trusted source has today suggested:

Panasonic is working on a GH5 high speed burst mode. It will also offer up to 20 frames/s in RAW!

The boost would have to be provided via a firmware update and burst duration would surely be limited, but a bump of 8fps via firmware alone seems unlikely; If it is possible why wouldn’t Panasonic implement if from the outset?

20fps would put the GH5 right up there with the new Sony A9 in terms of outright RAW burst performance, I’m not convinced though, let’s wait and see how this one develops.
