Panasonic Lumix G6 Review

Review guidelines
7 September 2013
  • Summary: Overall, the Panasonic Lumix G6 is an excellent mirrorless camera, perfectly able to replace a traditional SLR in most shooting situations and for the vast majority of amateur photographers. The pure image quality does not reach that of the best APS-C sensors, but the Lumix G6 compensates with extraordinary technical equipment, a fast burst, a video mode unattainable for many competing tools, the valuable addition of peaking focus and, ultimately, with its ultra-compact...
  • Pros: Impressive technological equipment, Qust to 7 fps, Excellent video quality, Well built.
  • Cons: Image quality good but not stellar, Improved ergonomics of some controls.

  • Conclusion: 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.

  • Summary: The camera handles quickly and is a joy to use with its superb OLED viewfinder and wealth of controls, whether you're operating it with the physical buttons or the very capable touch-screen interface. It's very responsive, focusing supremely quickly and confidently, even in very low light when other cameras would give up.
  • Pros: OLED viewfinder and 3in articulated touchscreen., Great Wifi features including remote control and NFC., Fast single autofocus which works under very low light., Movies w 1080/60/50/24p, focus peaking and mic input., Time lapse, stop motion, panoramas and 7 frame AEB., Access to the broadest native mirrorless lens catalogue.
  • Cons: Quality similar to last 2 generations. But does it matter?, No built-in GPS. Adding data via app can be fiddly., Can't turn down 'ta-da' sound when NFC is successful., Phase-detect AF systems remain better for continuous AF.

Panasonic LUMIX G6 Review

  • Summary: Packed with features, there's not a lot missing from the G6 it this price point, especially when you factor in the Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. The touchscreen interface and host of body-mounted controls make the G6 really easy and quick to use, and while we feel the overall finish has taken a slight step back over the G5, the curved handgrip delivers one of the most satisfying grips out there.

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: In some areas, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is a big step forward, such as the new viewfinder, touchscreen and Wi-Fi support, especially for remote shooting with a smartphone or tablet. However, its basic picture-taking capabilities are similar to its older stablemate. For anyone seeking an affordable camera with a wide range of customisable controls in a lightweight package, with an eye-piece viewfinder, fast autofocus and modelled on an SLR layout, the G6 has a lot going...

  • Summary: The latest camera from Panasonic G6 makes taking pictures a child’s play. Fitted with a swivel screen, an electronic viewfinder and latest connectivity technologies like NFC it takes delightful pictures and hence in a way combines best of both the worlds of DSLR and point and shoot cameras.
  • Pros: Image Stabilization , Flip Out Touchscreen , High Maximum ISO , External Mic Jack , Electronic Viewfinder
  • Cons: Noise at high ISO (above 600) , Marginally Smaller Sensor

Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC G6 – A Fun Compact DSLR Alternative

Techtree
26 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Panasonic, the pioneers of Mirrorless Compact Camera System , often called “The DSLM”, have a successor to their popular G5, the G6, which we are reviewing today. For those not in the know, the Mirrorless cameras do away basically with ‘mirrors’ that you find in a conventional DSLR, thus reducing the weight and size. This also means that the sensor is reduced from APS-C to something smaller, but not necessarily image quality.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality; Good build; Fantastic Touchscreen; Light and Compact; Fast Shooter.
  • Cons: Price; Smaller sensor not as good as APS-C sensor in Low light photography; Over-processes images.

  • Conclusion: The G6 certainly lives up to older cameras in Panasonic's G series, with solid handing and great image quality. The camera is intuitive to use, and feels good in the hand despite its small size - it's just like a small DSLR really. The Wi-Fi feature where you can control the camera and use a Live View feed with Android and iOS phones is an interesting, and potentially useful feature for many users.
