Excerpt: A few years ago I got tired of hauling around heavy cameras and lenses such as a Canon 7D with a 50-500 zoom, especially when I was traveling in foreign countries. So almost 3 years ago I bought a Lumix DMC G3, which was then the best that was offered in that series. I liked it so much I bought a second G3 body as a backup. Then about a year later the G5 was available and it had several improvements over the G3, so I bought a G5, which is also a very nice camera.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Focus Peeking, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact, Touch Sensitive Lcd
Excerpt: Okay, I have just deliberately run right down one of my 3rd party batteries for the Panny G6. 508 exposures: perhaps 460 of them using the EVF, the remainder using the LCD screen; a couple of dozen fill-in flash shots using the built-in flash; chimping quite a lot, including reviewing and deleting quite a few pix, maybe 100 or a bit more. A lot of exposures were medium speed burst mode with EVF refresh.
Everything was great. The tripod is light and easy to use

Summary: A present for my wife as she started trying to up her photography range. The camera came as expected, but I wasn't sure what the quality of the other accessories. Everything was great. The tripod is light and easy to use, the extra lenses and filters have been easy to use and very use to experiment with. She love the whole package!
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.
