Product Description

LUMIX G Micro Compact System Digital Camera G6 - Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera Featuring High Picture Quality, High Speed Response and Easy Sharing

The G6 with its refined Venus engine and New OLED Electronic Viewfinder builds on the success of the G5 but adds Wi-Fi network capabilities and a super-fast 7 frames per second burst shooting mode. This model is supplied with the H-FS14042 standard zoom kit lens.

Panasonic G6 LUMIX G

LUMIX G Micro Four Thirds System

World's 1st Mirrorless System

By adopting the Micro Four Thirds System standard and developing a camera that eliminates the mirror box and optical viewfinder unit, Panasonic revolutionised the world of DSLR cameras in September 2008 by introducing the world's first mirrorless camera. Delivering superb image quality, this made it possible to create a new Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera that features Full-time Live View, high-speed, high-precision contrast AF, full HD video recording, and more.

Large LIVE MOS Image Sensor

The size and type of sensor was a critical part in the development of Lumix G. 8x larger than the sensor used in a typical compact camera, and large enough to capture all the light coming through the lens without bending or distortion. The Micro Four Thirds sensor is almost as large as a Digital SLR APS-C sized sensor, but is designed to match the lens mount aperture perfectly, allowing the light to enter the camera in a straight line.

Photo Quality

New 16MP LIVE MOS Sensor & Venus Engine Noise Reduction

The 16.0-megapixel Live MOS sensor and new Venus engine enable better resolution and high-definition textures. Three areas of advanced NR realise image smoothing in specific areas whilst maintaining natural detail. Sensitivity can now be extended to ISO25600 for extreme low light shooting.

Networking

Panasonic G6 LUMIX G
Send pictures over Wi-Fi to upload, save or print.
Built-in Wi-Fi for Enhanced Network Functions

The inclusion of Wi-Fi functionality adds a whole new level of control and convenience. This new functionality includes: Remote control by smartphone or tablet device. Automatic back-up of photos to a Wi-Fi enabled tablet. Playback, Print or Transfer your pictures to other networked devices in your home. You can even add the location to your pictures using the GPS function of the tablet or phone that the camera is linked with.

Remote Shooting & Remote View with Tablet or Smartphone

Use your Smartphone or tablet device to see the live image through the camera lens and then take the shot. Using the "Peer to Peer" or Wi-Fi function in the camera, the picture can be monitored externally and controlled remotely by a connected smart device*.

*Controlling device requires "Panasonic Image App" for iOS / Android.

Wireless NFC - World's First for Interchangeable Lens System Camera

As a World 1st, Panasonic brings NFC (Near Field Communication) capability in to this system camera model utilising the latest smart communication technology. NFC compatible products can share or be ready to share data just by touching the two devices or bringing them close together.

Panasonic G6 LUMIX G
High resolution OLED electronic view finder with eye sensor.

Functionality and Ease of Use

1.04m pixels, 3.0 Inch, Free-angle, Touch Screen LCD

The ultra-high resolution touch screen LCD has a free-angle capability enabling low-level or high-angle shooting. And with new in-cell touch sensor technology that eliminates the need for a touch filter, the screen delivers improved visibility and up to 25% less power consumption.

High Resolution OLED Live View Electronic View Finder (EVF) With Eye Sensor

A new high resolution (1.44M dots equivalent), fast read-out OLED EVF is available on the G6 that not only offers an incredibly clear 100% field of view, but also reduces the display lag time to 1/3rd that of our previous model.

Touch-Pad AF Control

When using the Electronic Live Viewfinder the free-angle LCD screen doubles up as a touch-pad. This conveniently enables you to select or move the Auto Focus point without taking your eye off the viewfinder.

New Touch-AE Function

Simply touch an area on the screen where you want the exposure to be corrected and the adjustment is automatically made. Touch AE mode can be set to one of the function buttons for easy and quick access.

7fps High Speed Burst Shooting with Full Resolution

At full resolution it is possible to capture an incredible 7 frames per second or 5fps with Auto Focus Tracking enabled. With the new Ultra-high Light-speed AF provided by the Contrast AF system, even the fastest moving subjects can be captured sharply.

Panasonic G6 LUMIX G
Personalise your photos by choosing from 19 creative filter effects.

In-camera photo editing to remove unwanted elements of your picture.
Clear Re-touch Mode

Creative Panorama Mode

The Ultra-wide shooting panorama mode not only allows you to capture vast landscapes in one complete picture, but this camera also offers "Creative Panorama" mode which allows you to choose from up to 15 filter effects that can be applied to your shot.

Video Capabilities

Panasonic G6 LUMIX G

Full-time Auto Focus Available during Video Recording

Due to the mirrorless design and Contrast Auto Focus system, auto focussing is continuously available during video recording.

Stop-motion Animation Mode

Endless fun can be had by creating your own stop-motion movies. Create a whole new world of motion by positioning your subject, shooting a still frame, then repositioning it and shooting again.

Time-lapse Shooting Mode

Time lapse recording enables the user to capture an event spaced over a long period of time, in a video sequence that you only want to last a few seconds, such as the opening of a flower or the setting of the sun. Shooting intervals between 1 sec and 99 mins 59 seconds can be selected.

Style Name: 14-140mm Lens Verified Purchase
The G6 is the third Lumix camera I have owned. My first was the G3, which was Panasonic's attempt to see just how small a mirrorless camera could be while still retaining an electronic viewfinder; it's a perfectly decent camera, but the smallness of the body results in various compromises in usability. The G5 addressed most of these, and while not much bigger, it was a much nicer camera to use. I didn't really see a need to upgrade to the G6, but I tried one out and ended up buying it - here's why.

The two main failings of the G5, for me, were its focussing in low-light situations, and the touchscreen. It struggled to focus in dark situations, frequently failing to focus altogether. The G6 is significantly better in this respect; it is at least as good as a DSLR now, which is impressive given it only uses contrast-detection for AF. The G5's touchscreen was resistive, as on old mobile phones, and it just wasn't good enough - it required a hefty shove to register touches, and while you could in theory slide your finger across it to control aspects of the camera, it really didn't work well enough to be usable. It also lacked any form of calibration, which is a must on a resistive screen - the camera badly needed a capacitative screen instead, and the G6 now has one. The touchscreen is a joy to use as a result, particularly when combined with the new "system monitor" display, which shows all the major camera settings on the rear screen and allows them to be set with a tap.

The other major hardware upgrade is the use of an OLED display in the viewfinder. While not any higher in resolution than the display on the G5, it is much brighter and faster to respond - I hadn't thought the G5's viewfinder was bad, but the G6's is noticeably better as soon as you look at it.

Style Name: Body Only
I have owned my G6 for just a few days and it exceeds expectations. Moving up from a very excellent G3 the first aspect to impress is the OLED viewfinder. Clear and without smearing it is close to a DSLR but with useful information such as horizon alignment.

The next useful feature is the rocker switch just behind the shooting button--it is an exposure compensation facility which the G3 does not have unless you go into a time consuming menu. The G6 also has AE lock which the G3 lacked and I use such a feature a lot when shooting bright objects surrounded by a dark area such as shooting through a tunnel. Hard to say if IQ is that much better than the G3 as that little gem never disappointed.

The Scene mode and other creative features are extremely simple to use and the graphics provided on the swivel screen are first class. The touch screen is a big improvement over the G3 which relied on a firm press/resistance to get the desired result.

The only downside is that the quality feel is not there. The G6 feels plastic compared with the G3 and G5 owners have said the same. But for £255 (price paid on ebay for a new G6 body split from a 14-140mm lens) it is great value--perhaps the best DSLM or DSLR out there for under £750. The body is larger than the G3 and this is a slight disappointment as my move to Panasonic from Canon was to save weight and size. But the G6 is light and my Panasonic lenses are all smaller than DSLR equivalents and they are excellent quality. Panny lenses are overpriced in my view when you move up to the 12-35mm f2.8 for example. I use the MIJ 14-45mm and the 42-200mm and feel these two have most situations covered. I await something in the 10-12mm range that will not stretch the budget. Sigma?

Bottom line: I highly recommend the G6. It does everything well and for the price it has no peers. 5 stars.

Style Name: 14-140mm Lens
I had intended to buy the Panasonic GX7 .... but this G6 is offered with the well reviewed new 14-240 lens which after rebate is practically the same as the price of the lens.
I should say also that it has three advantages over the GX7
It has an OLED viewfinder ... whereas the GX7 EVF uses in ferior LCD technology which is prone to rainbow effect
It has a fully articulating screen which is better in Portrait mode and can be stored so as to protect the LCD.
It is IMHO mush more comfortable to hold.
The kit offered here offers a great travel option ... and if you want you could buy an as new Panasonic 20 for the price of the GX7 body alone.

I should say the GX7 looks sexier and has marginally better quality pictures especially at high ISO ... but my view is to get the lenses and then consider upgrading IF you want in 12 months! BUT I strongly advise checking how the two feel in your hands. The ample grip of the G6 makes carrying and taking photos a good experience... here are further thoughts on the matter

Style Name: 14-140mm Lens Verified Purchase
I got the most awesome deal for this product: 476 pounds for this G6 + 14-140 (the new, sleeker, faster at wide open version!). Since Panasonic offered 100 pounds cashback at the moment, final price was 376 pounds, so I consider that I good a good deal for the lens alone, and the camera was actually free :D
As for the camera-lens itself, it's great if you get a good deal. A superb all in one system with lots of control and great video quality.
Pros:
- nice ergonomics, great grip.
- good viewfinder
- awesome tilt+swivel touch screen with great image quality.
- Photos: very good image quality at low iso, specially if a good lens is used.
- Video: great quality, 1080p 50fps smooth footage.
- focusing speed is great, but you need to know how to use it (see cons)
- Mic input
- strap loops out of hand position, if you hate olympus' loops that always are in the middle, you'll love this camera.
- Lens: reasonably light, good build quality, super-versatile focal range, and fast focuser too!

Cons:
- High Iso, low lighting not as good as best Olympus (should I say sony?) sensors.
- the build quality is good, but the plastic feels cheap, thin.
- Noticeable fps slowdown in low light, but not to a point camera gets unusable.
- AF tracking miles away from phase detection or hybrid systems, barely useful.
- Movie AF does the defocus-focus thing that usually means you're better with manual focusing for video, specially if using the 20mm lens.
- Battery life so-so (but cheap batteries available out there)

All in all, a good camera which becomes a great buy if you get the right deal. While this is an "older" product, look out for special sales on this one as there should be some sort of newer model coming this year, something playing middle ground between "serious" GH4 and the smaller GM1/5.
