The GF6 is a substantial upgrade over previous models and integrates many exciting new features, such as a mode dial, tilting touch screen, wifi and NFC capabilities.

WDC reports…

The Panasonic Lumix GF6 is a new base model compact system camera which sees significant improvements to the outgoing Panasonic Lumix GF5 it replaces.

The Panasonic Lumix GF6 features a higher resolution 16MP Live MOS sensor and new processor to boost the image quality and reduce high ISO noise, while externally the Panasonic Lumix GF6 get’s a new high resolution tiltable LCD screen and a mode dial on the top, bring it into line with other models in the Lumix G range.

A major new addition to the Panasonic Lumix GF6 is Wi-fi which offers a selection of benefits including 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, 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.

Look for the Panasonic Lumix GF6 to hit the market in May with a smaller, redesigned (and much better) 14-42mm kit lens.
