16.05-megapixel Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine
Fast, Accurate Light Speed AF
New 1440K-dot Equivalent OLED LVF (Live View Finder)
P/S/A/M Manual Control and 50p(50Hz)/24p Full HD Video
Easy Wireless Connectivity via Wi-Fi® / NFC with Smartphones
Creative Panorama and Creative Control with 19 Filter Effects

16.05-megapixel Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine
The DMC-G6 integrates 16.05-megapixel Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine featuring its advanced noise reduction systems. The controllable noise area is expanded by approx.64x in size and large block noise is removed. The Multi-process NR works in two separate steps allowing finer control over noise level. The limit resolution is enhanced with detail reproduction, and advanced Intelligent D-range Control ensures beautiful gradation with wider dynamic range. The Low Light AF gains higher performance in such as moonlight even without AF assist lamp.

Fast focusing
The fast, accurate Light Speed AF makes it possible to capture fast-moving subjects clearly. 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. Also, AF Tracking enables consecutive shooting to capture moving subject at 5 fps. he 1440K-dot equivalent OLED LVF retains the outstanding viewability. It can be used with monitor at the same time as the Touch Pad function.

Full HD movies
The DMC-G6 can record full HD 1,920 × 1,080 videos with stunning smoothness at 50p (50Hz) in AVCHD Progressive and MP4 format, or 24p in AVCHD format according to your intended use. In addition to the built-in stereo microphone featuring Dolby® Digital, the DMC-G6 is equipped with 3.5mm terminals for external microphone to comply with serious sound recording. Also, the audio input level can be adjusted in 19 steps. The P/A/S/M mode will faithfully reflect your shooting intent, and give you a wide range of video images.

Wi-Fi connectivity
With the Wi-Fi® connectivity plus NFC technology, you can connect the camera to your smartphone/tablet anywhere with one-touch, which makes sharing images much easier. It is also possible to use a smartphone/tablet as a multi-capable remote shutter with a monitor. With the Instant Transfer function, photos are automatically sent to the smartphone/tablet right after shooting. On the other hand, both photo and video can be archived to the registered digital equipment such as PC automatically via the wireless access point (router) at home.

Creative control
The Creative Control with 19 filter effects gives you the expressive power to turn ordinary situations into highly special scenes. The Creative Panorama lets you apply filter effects to a dynamic vertical/horizontal panoramic image. The Stop Motion Animation function enables producing a stop motion (stop frame) video on camera with the pictures that are sequentially shot while moving the object by degrees. The Clear Retouch makes it is possible to erase unwanted objects or figures in an image by tracing over them on monitor with a fingertip.

Awards
The Lumix DMC-G6 was recently reviewed by TechRadar where it scored 5 Stars and was awarded Editor’s Choice….
“It is clear that the compact system camera is now stepping beyond the confines to which it has traditionally been assigned. The Panasonic G6’s focusing system is fast and accurate in a range of conditions, and it is possible to shoot sport and action as well as take travel and landscape images.”
