Overview

Description by Panasonic:

The DMC-G6 integrates 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine featuring its advanced noise reduction systems. It effectively removes noise in multiple steps according to the noise characteristics, realizing both smoothness and sharpness according to the part of an image. In addition, the limit resolution is enhanced thanks to the precise detail reproduction and advanced Intelligent D-range Control ensures beautiful gradation with wider dynamic range than ever.

Low Light AF
The Low Light AF in DMC-G6 gains higher performance in such as moonlight even without AF assist lamp to set focus on the subject more precisely. Combined with the Full-area Touch AF, it is possible to set focus on any point in the field of view which realizes intuitive focusing operation with free frame composition.

· Depending on the picture-taking conditions, this function may not work.

Light Speed AF and Burst Shooting
The DMC-G6 features high-speed Light Speed AF, making it possible to capture even the fast-moving subject clearly. Not only the accuracy but also the speed of AF in DMC-G6 surpasses the high-end DSLRs with Phase difference. The camera and the lens exchange the digital signal at max. 240 fps to minimize the time to focus. The DMC-G6 realizes the high speed burst shooting at 7 fps in 16.05-megapixel full resolution and max. 40 fps using an electronic shutter. Also, AF Tracking enables consecutive shooting to capture moving subject in sharp focus at 5 fps*.

* In 1-area-focusing AF mode.

Touch AF & Touch AE
With the Full-area Touch AF, it is possible to set focus on any point in the field of view which realizes quick and intuitive focusing operation with free frame composition. In addition, the newly adopted Touch AE (Auto Exposure) function allows setting focus and exposure at a single touch on the subject displayed on the monitor.

OLED Live View Finder
The large, bright 1,440K-dot OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) LVF (Live View Finder) with approx. 100% field of view in 4:3 aspect boasts excellent color reproduction and astonishingly high contrast at 10,000:1 for outstanding viewability. The display time lag is minimized dramatically compared with the predecessor DMC-G5. The image output between the LVF and the rear monitor is switched automatically with the eye sensor on the LVF, which features options of sensitivity - high, low and off - to reduce false operation during touching on the rear monitor.

1920 x 1080p Full-HD Video Recording in AVCHD and MP4
The DMC-G6 records stunningly smooth, high-resolution full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p (NTSC area) / 50p (PAL area) videos in AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4 / H.264) format. The DMC-G6 also supports 1080/24p native mode with 24 Mbps in AVCHD format bringing impressive afterimage to the footage.

The full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p (NTSC area) / 50p (PAL area) video can also be recorded in MP4 at 28 Mbps, to play it back directly on the PC or other portable electronic devices without a need of conversion.

One-Touch Connection and Picture Sharing with NFC
With NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, you can connect the camera with a smartphone/tablet by just bringing them together. What is new is that the Wi-Fi® setup is extremely easy and finishes within a few seconds, making it possible to pair the camera directly to the smartphone/tablet without connection procedure of information input for authorization.

This functions can be used with the NFC compatible devices

Remote Shooting / Remote View
With Panasonic "Image App", remote shooting of both photo and video* is available by using the smartphone/tablet for a remote shutter with a monitor which displayed live at smooth 30 fps. Not only releasing a shutter, zooming**, focusing and settings of shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation are all controllable with a smartphone/tablet.

* For remote shooting of video, start/stop recording is available over smartphone/tablet control
** With LUMIX G Power Zoom Lens H-PS14042 or H-PS45175.

Instant Transfer
The Instant Transfer function allows the camera to transfer the photo data to the designated electronic devices automatically whenever shutter is released. In playback mode, you can also touch the image displayed on the camera to transfer it directly to the smartphone / tablet* right on the spot.

Installing “Image App” is needed in advance.

Wi-Fi® Features - On the Go
Easy Share

You can instantly upload and share your images on an SNS (Social Networking Service) using the "Panasonic Image App" on a smartphone / tablet.

Geotagging
In addition, it is possible to tag the location information to the image by utilizing the GPS (Global Positioning System) log of a smartphone / tablet.

Reviews

"Falling into the mini-DSLR category of mirrorless models, the Panasonic G6 in many ways matches and even betters similarly priced DSLRs. Indeed we can't think of any DSLR or CSC model that offers all of the G6's features, which happily are matched by great performance, proven handling and seemingly endless customisablity.

Image quality is really the only obvious achilles heel of the G6 when comparing it
