Youtube User DIGIFOTO Pro posted the video quality comparison above between the Panasonic Lumix G6 and Panasonic’s former flagship, the Lumix GH2 (you can see Part I of our video quality comparison here).
Just to recap, the Lumix G6 and GH2 share the same sensor. But the G6’s processing engine is now several generations beyond that of the GH2 and allows the G6 to tap into much more of the sensor’s brilliant image capturing capacity in still photos mode. But does the Lumix G6 match up well with the legendary GH2 in video mode?
Watch the video above, which shows both graded and ungraded footage from the Lumix G6 and a hacked GH2.
Personally, the G6 video footage looks brighter and punchier to me, with better high ISO performance and dynamic range (Youtube compression notwithstanding). It outclasses it predecessor, the Lumix G5, in the video department as well, and even slightly bests it in still photos, where the G5 shines. At a price of $749 USD, The Panasonic Lumix G6 is poised to become one of the most popular Hybrid Cameras of the year. Put me down for one.
