The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera incorporates a new 16MP Live MOS sensor and a newly developed Venus Engine Image processor for sharp, high resolution, low-noise imaging with high-performance signal processing and start-up speed. Its multi-process noise reduction system and wide dynamic range are products of its improved image processor and enable clear, fine textured photos even when working in its 25600 extended ISO.
The DMC-GF6 mirrorless camrea utilizes a Contrast Auto Focus system for accurate focusing and its Light Speed AF system with full time AF and tracking AF enables focusing on fast moving subjects. Newly integrated Low Light AF enables accurate focusing on your subject even in low-lit situations.
A 3.0″ Touch Screen LCD enables Touch Focus, Touch AE (auto exposure) and shutter release with a simple tap on the monitor. The LCD is also tiltable to 180º for easy self portraits or other odd angle compositions. External light reflection is minimized because the touch panel is directly connected to the LCD without an air layer between them. Its 100% frame coverage provides color accuracy and high resolution.
The DMC-GF6 supports Full HD 1080 video recording and provides a one touch dedicated button to immediate start video mode. Both AVCHD and MP4 formats are offered depending on the level of quality you need, Built-in stereo audio recording is available in the AVCHD format as is P/A/S/M manual exposure control.
Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to instantly transfer images to your computer or to your smartphone and tablet for easy sharing. And with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology all you need to do to connect camera to smart device is to touch them together. With Panasonic’s free Image App you can not only transfer images easily but use your device as the camera’s remote control and viewfinder, utilize your DLNA-compliant HDTV for image playback and have instant image transfer from shutter release directly to your selected computer or device.
A camera for every level of shooter, the GF6 provides full manual exposure control but also offers Intelligent Auto Plus Mode to allow the camera to utilize its numerous assist functions when analyzing the scene you are shooting. A Scene Guide features 23 sample images to match to the scene you are shooting and have the camera adjust itself to the proper settings. In addition, many in-camera functions allow you to create stylistic images: panorama mode, stop-motion animation, self-shot or enhance your images with Creative Control filters or Clear Retouch.
The DMC-GF6 offers compatibility with all Micro Four Thirds mount lenses.
Overall, we’re confident that the Panasonic GF6 will be a good performer, and it will be interesting to see how it performs in the market. With a new lower price point but the added benefits of a tilting screen, Wi-Fi and NFC, we can see this appealing to the beginner user who wants to have a lot of fun.
