Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 Hands-on Preview

 

Less than a year after releasing the G5, Panasonic is back with another mid-range G-series Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens camera aimed at the upper entry-level DSLR/ILC market. The G6 sits above the recently-announced GF6 and below the GH3 in...

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G6 Preview

 

Panasonic has announced its latest Wi-Fi capable, interchangeable lens LUMIX series camera for 2013. The DMC-G6 is an updated version of last year's well-reviewed G5, which our reviewer said "delivers a lot of high-end features in a lightweight,...

Panasonic Lumix G6

 

The new Panasonic Lumix G6 is just a little larger than the G5 model that it succeeds, measuring 122.45 x 84.6 x 71.4 mm, but weighs about the same 340g for the body only. Styledl very much in the DSLR mould, the Panasonic Lumix G6 is an understated,...

Panasonic G6 Review

 

Last fall, Panasonic shipped the Lumix G5, a camera we rather liked thanks to refinements throughout its design. It might seem a little soon for a followup just six months later, but the successor to that Dave's Pick-winning camera is now here, and...

No information on pricing or availability had been disclosed at press time; Panasonic typically doesn't reveal this until around a month before cameras go on sale. You can however pre-order the Panasonic G6 kit with compact 14-42mm lens for US$749.99...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6: Lab Test Results & Comments

 

As a member of the G Series, the G6 is styled like an SLR system, in contrast to the GF models, which are styled like compact cameras. The G6 offers a high-resolution viewfinder system with an OLED screen that has 1.4 million RGB dots. In addition, it...

Very fast AF system ; Swivel LCD screen with high resolution for comfortable shooting ; Comprehensive video features ; Wi-Fi and NFC connection

Panasonic Lumix G6

 

The latest Lumix is better than the G5 in more ways than one.

This camera represents an evolutionary dead-end. Even though Panasonic's done a fine job making the G6 a great update of a camera we already thought was pretty decent, the tired 16-megapixel sensor at its heart just isn't all that great any more....

Panasonic Lumix G6

 

Like the G5 before it, the G6 is styled like a mini DSLR with a decent sized grip and viewfinder head, although Panasonic has redesigned the shell to give it quite a different look to its predecessor. Inside the Lumix G6 employs the same 16 Megapixel...

OLED viewfinder and 3in articulated touchscreen ; Great Wifi features including remote control and NFC ; Fast single autofocus which works under very low light ; Movies w 1080/60/50/24p, focus peaking and mic input ; Time lapse, stop motion, panoramas...

Quality similar to last 2 generations. But does it matter ; No built-in GPS. Adding data via app can be fiddly ; Can't turn down 'ta-da' sound when NFC is successful ; Phase-detect AF systems remain better for continuous AF

I've said it before and I'll say it again: the Panasonic Lumix G6 is one of the most satisfying cameras I've used to date. The image quality may be essentially the same as its predecessor, but the feature set, handling and usability have all received...

Panasonic Lumix G6 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix G6 is full of surprises. It features the sensor from the old GH2 augmented by a powerful new Venus Engine image processing chip. The camera gains a much faster and more sensitive AF system which, surprisingly, lives up to every...

Solid build, Extensive lens lineup makes the micro four thirds system a good choice, Good audio recording with on-board microphones, Very fast and accurate AF system

Bridge form-factor goes against the compact nature of mirrorless cameras, which might deter some users, Low light performance slightly disappointing

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 Review

 

If it looks like a DSLR, feels like a DSLR, works like a DSLR and takes pictures like a DSLR, it probably is a DSLR. Izznit?

Panasonic Lumix G6

 

Is Panasonic still the king of compact system cameras?

Addition of NFC and Wi-fi welcome ; Impressive video ; Good design and size ; Outstanding adjustable touchscreen

Plasticy body in some areas ; High ISO performance weaker than DSLR rivals

As well as offering full manual stills capture control, the G6 also features 19 filters, all accessible through the 'Creative Control' mode. Two new settings also debut - a Creative Panorama function and Clear Retouch mode, both of which offer simple...
