Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6

 

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.

Wi-Fi, with support for NFC, is standard on the GF6. Once you've downloaded the free Lumix Link app for iOS or Android you'll be able to transfer photos to your device, and use it as a wireless remote to choose a focus point and fire the GF6's...

Panasonic Lumix GF6

 

The Panasonic Lumix GF6 is very similar in outward appearance to the previous GF5 model that it replaces. It's just a little bit larger at 111.2 x 64.8 x 38.4 mm and heavier at 280g without a lens attached or battery inserted. With a pancake lens like...

Panasonic GF6 Review

 

For the fifth straight generation, Panasonic courts consumers and enthusiasts alike with a relatively compact interchangeable-lens mirrorless camera that nonetheless packs in the features.

Pricing and availability. The Panasonic GF6 with 14-42mm II kit lens ships from June 2013 for a suggested list price of US$599.99. Body colors may vary by market, but will include black, white, brown, and red.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 is clearly a capable mirrorless digital camera. It delivers a well-rounded performance, combining high image-quality and fast operational speed. Its relatively compact size makes it light and easy to carry when using small...

Low image noise until ISO 1600, Realistic image colors after tweaking, Good automatic white-balance, Reliable metering, Short shutter-lag, Quick and responsive, Calibratable LCD, Good LCD visibility

Slight image softness from base ISO, EC easily accidentally changed, Below average shot-to-shot speed, Flimsy control-dial, Wrong Live-Histogram, Poor flash clearance, No EVF option, Short battery life

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 turns a good performance while remaining compact and providing plenty of powerful features. Its novice-oriented interface offers simplicity yet rarely gets in the way of advanced features. Exposure-Compensation may be...

Is the GF6 the perfect upgrade from a compact?

Good image quality and noise control, Vari-angle LCD screen is useful, Advanced and flexible control set-up

Buttons on touchscreen too small, So-so battery life, Over sharp JPEGs
