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-FS1442A standard zoom kit lens.
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.
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.
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.
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.
