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...
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..
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace my Nikon D70 DSLR. The G6 is a huge step above my old D70. I chose the Panasonic Lumix G6 over the Canon SL1, and I have no regrets. The G6 focuses quickly and takes outstanding photos. The image stabilization turns the kit lens into a great shooter.
Pros: This camera takes fantastic photos and has plenty of features like panorama shots and intelligent auto modes. Video is great, with several different format options. The fully articulated screen shines. The camera focuses fast and is not a major step down from a DSLR. Battery life is good enough. ...
Cons: Battery life could be better, and may lead some to buy a spare. Raw photos are difficult to work with and the Silkypix software is not user friendly. Neither of these factors would lead me to give the camera a negative review.
