Camping in the mountain is great fun. I had a lot of fun with my friends last week. We sang, danced, drank beer, and lived in the mountains. Although the tent is not as comfortable as a bed, it is an unforgettable night. I'm very glad that I took this interesting experience with my Panasonic Lumix GH5 II camera. But I can't edit the 4K MOV videos in Vegas Pro smoothly. What should I do?
Panasonic has made some creative decisions with the consumer Lumix line to maintain relevance in a difficult camera market.

It is capable of unlimited video recording in various settings and can record C4K/4K 60p 4:2:0 10-bit without cropping, with simultaneous output over HDMI during internal recording.
