Excerpt: I am an amateur photographer who is just upgrading from a film SLR camera to a mirror less SLR. My first purchase was an Olympus, which had a menu system that was also impossible to master. I moved over to the Lumix G6 and I am very happy with this camera. The menu system is clear and easy to use and the camera includes a LVF. The photos are clear and bright, and the AF works easily even under low light conditions.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: This is my first Micro Four Thirds digital camera, I chose it because of is small weight and its known good performances. However it needs get used to, some controls need to get used to. The printed user's manual lists the buttons/wheel but doesn't tell their function, however there is a complete user's manual on a CD.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I wanted to purchase a used GH2 but couldn't trust any of the sellers so I bought this G6 and I'm very pleased. Images are sharp, video capabilities are excellent, and it is crazy light and easy to store. The only downside is its performance at ISO's over 800 (there is some grain) but it performs admirably.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Small / Compact
Summary: I was really researching a purchase for the G6 and I finally found this bundle. With everything you get it is a great deal and really the only thing that I won't use here is the tripod.. It needs to be of better quality.. Everything else more than met my expectations and the camera its self is fantastic. I use my gear everyday for work and couldn't be happier.. Initially the wrong flash was included but the Cameta Camera folks were quick to make things right.
Excerpt: First of all, it's small, plastic, cheap feeling. But that's the reason you can afford it. Inside is another story. VROOOOM! 1080 60p, Focus Peeking.. yeah! And it has a couple (actually useful) extras, like Panoramic and Stop Motion. Throw some good (none kit) glass on this thing and there's not much you can't do! I own a couple GH2 cameras and a GH4. I have absolutely NO problem throwing this thing in the mix and use it all of the time.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Pro Features, Small / Compact
Excerpt: IN THE SHORT TIME I HAVE HAD WITH THIS CAMERA I AM VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE SIZE, WEIGHT AND FUNCTIONALITY. I WILL USE IT MOSTLY FOR TRAVEL AND THE COMPACT DESIGN WILL WORK WELL. I LOVE THE TOUCH SCREEN AND THE VERY BRIGHT VIEWFINDER. I HAVE OWNED A NUMBER OF PANASONIC CAMERAS AND HAVE FOUND THEM VERY RELIABLE WITH WELL THOUGHT OUT DESIGNS. I AM SURE I WILL ENJOY USING THE G6.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great touch screen, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Summary: This 3rd party camera bundle ($647) was delivered in time before i left for vacation, a photographic trip of the American southwest. I also ordered Panasonic's 42mm -200mm zoom lens. The G6 produced some very nice clear sharp pictures of Monument Valley and Colorado River's Horseshoe Bend.
Excerpt: I bought this camera as an upgrade from a Canon G11, because I wanted more flexibility, and the ability to use telephoto lenses, but I didn't want the bulk of a full size DSLR. This fits the bill perfectly for me. It is fairly lightweight, but solidly built. It takes great photos. And is fairly easy to use. I have had it for about 3 months or so, and am still learning new things about it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact, Very Usable E-viewfinder
Excerpt: Bought this to be a b-cam for my GH4. This thing really shocked me in terms of how close it comes to the GH4. It is a very capable video camera that only has a couple small drawbacks: 1) you cannot get a feed via HDMI so you are stuck with AVCHD; 2) Changing the memory card is a pain as it is in the same compartment as the battery and 3) no cine-like D or V settings to match the GH4. You can dial in the custom picture setting though, so that last one isn't a biggie.
