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.
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 nati...
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.

Pros: Size; Handgrip; Touchscreen interface; Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity; Video capabilities
Cons: High ISO performance not as strong as DSLR rivals; Plasticky feel to some areas of the body
Excerpt: In terms of core photographic features, the G6 offers a solid set of specifications, including the same sensor as the once range-topping GH2, albeit without that model's multi-aspect feature. Maximum effective resolution is 16MP effective, from 18MP (total pixels).
Summary: • Image Stabilization • Flip Out Touchscreen • High Maximum ISO • External Mic Jack • Electronic Viewfinder • Noise at high ISO (above 600) • Marginally Smaller Sensor A great camera is the one which can take great pictures. But if it is easy to use too, just how better it would become.
