The video test above was shot with the Lumix GF6, the new micro 4/3 camera from Panasonic that succeeds the popular Lumix GF5. The GF6 represents a considerable upgrade over the previous model and incorporates several new featires that should prove to be popular with consumers.
The Panasonic Lumix GF6 features a higher resolution 16MP Live MOS sensor and the latest Venus Processing Engine to boost the image quality while reducing high ISO noise. Noticeable differences on the exterior include a new high resolution tiltable LCD touch screen and a mode dial on the top, as well as a metal top plate that gives it a retro feel.
Another major addition to the Panasonic Lumix GF6 is Wi-fi, which gives users the ability to wirelessly transfer images to a smart phone or tablet and to monitor and fire the camera remotely from the smart phone. In addition the GF6 features NFC (Near Field Communication), which enables images to be transferred to an NFC enabled phone or other device by simply touching them together.
Panasonic has boosted the selection of Creative Control filters with the addition of a Creative Panorama mode, Stop Frame Animation and Clear retouch, which enables users to remove unwanted background objects by rubbing the LCD monitor with a finger.
As with previous GF models the GF6 features a 3.0inch touch screen with Touch Focus, Touch Exposure and Touch Shutter functionality.
This looks like a great camera and should have mass appeal to those who are fans of Panasonic’s earlier GF models as well as those looking to upgrade their GX1. Can’t wait to get some hands on time with this little darlin’!
