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!
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.
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.
Summary: I've tried this on a few older slides. Simple, easy to use. Attach it to the front of the camera, put 3 slides in the holder and align it to the first slide. Point it at a light source and take the picture. I also use a tripod for stability and a desk lamp for the light source. Be sure to white-balance first (easy to do just before putting the slides in).
Excerpt: I was looking to buy either a Olympus OMDEM5 or a GX7 … but bought this with a 14-140 lens for practically the price of the lens. I had assumed I would sell it and trade "up" but after using it i changed my mind. Its high ISO performance is marginally behind these high end models but its viewfinder is BETTER than the GX7 and equal to the EM5. Its handling is IMHO better than either. It is not weatherproof and is slightly plasticky. BUT it is well built.
Excerpt: I've used the micro 4/3 cameras since Panasonic first introduced the GH1 and GF1 for their unique combination of image quality, sensor size for low light performance, and video capabilities. My current cameras include the Oly OMD-EM5, EPL1, Panasonic GX1, and now the G6. This review is focused more on the video capability of the G6, as I use it professionally for field research in this capacity.
Summary: Great package deal from Cameta Camera. Received package well packed. Besides the G6 the other items in the package came in handy. 64GB fast SD card. The small tripod - fits nicely on my Lowpro Slingshot 202AW. Additional TTL and M flash unit which swivels as well as tilts and has a modeling light (video light). Filters including polarizing filter and a 49-52mm adapter ring.
Excerpt: I have the Lumix G1 with the 14-45mm, 45-200mm lens, but the memory cover fell off, the flash hot shoe damaged by a third party thumb rest ,with a trip to Africa coming up I decided to upgrade to the Olympus OMD-em5. When I compared it with the G6 in the shop, despite the better quality of the Olympus I didn't like its handling, the Lumix G6 felt so secure to hold. I bought the G6 with an Olympus 60mm macro lens, these two are a good combination.
