Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 Review

 

Mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is a category that is quickly growing thanks to its USP of offering better image quality in a comparatively compact form factor as compared to similarly priced DSLRs. Panasonic, Sony and Olympus have been quite...

There are four function buttons, of which two are physical and two are touch buttons. You can set any of the 28 functions on any of the four buttons. We would suggest you to keep the Fn1 and Fn2 buttons as is, unless you won’t be using the Wi-Fi button...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 captures images with excellent quality, but it's not a good option for burst shooting.

Sharp, tilting, touch-screen display. Hinged flash with bounce. Quick autofocus. Clean JPG output through ISO 3200. Raw shooting support. Fast startup. Wi-Fi with NFC. Includes good starter lens

No EVF option. Burst shooting limited to 3.5fps. Lacks shoe and mic input. Limited burst shooting in Raw

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 ($599.99 direct with lens) is the company's new entry-level mirrorless camera, and aside from a rather slow shot-to-shot rate, it's a solid performer. It focuses quickly, produces detailed images in challenging light, and...

Panasonic Lumix GF6

 

The Panasonic Lumix GF6 is a compact mirror-less system camera based on the Micro Four Thirds standard. Announced in April 2013, it comes exactly one year after the GF5 and replaces that model. Existing GX1 owners who are finding the newer GX7 is a...

3 inch 1040k flip-over touch-screen ; Self shot mode ; Quick and easy Wifi sharing with NFC ; Excellent low-light AF performance ; Stop motion intervalometer ; Panorama Shot mode

Lacks hotshoe and accessory EVF ; Lacks focus peaking ; Movie button hard to activate

Given the current obsession with retro styling and rangefinder chic, it would be easy to pass over a camera like the Panasonic Lumix GF6 in favour of something superficially more classy. But while it may not look as sexy and desirable as models like...

The GF series goes back to its roots.

At this stage in the compact system camera game, Panasonic knows where it stands. The GF series has taken a long and winding road (with a few bumps along the way), but the GF6 is a camera with plenty of features and controls that let you use them the...

Panasonic Lumix GF6 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix GF6 is the brand's latest compact system camera and packs Wi-Fi and NFC with the hope that it'll appeal to smartphone users

Affordable ; Tilitng hi-res screen ; Improved resolution

Small and plasticy ; Not so good in low light ; No eye viewfinder

So far, we've only had a very quick look at the GF5, but we're keen to check out the new features - especially the built-in Wi-Fi (we're also keen to bung some special effects onto a panoramic shot as well). Stay tuned...

Beginner-friendly compact system camera gets an overhaul

Excellent screen ; Digital filters ; Built in Wi-Fi

Tricky to use Wi-Fi ; Can't use filters in PASM ; Bulkier than predecessor
