Excerpt: In short, the Panasonic Lumix G DMC-GF6K digital single lens mirrorless camera looks, feels and performs well above its price tag. Adopting functionality from it's predecessors, inspiration from DSLR cameras and lending user-friendly technology standards found in smart-phones the GF6 is a camera...
Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 captures images with excellent quality, but it's not a good option for burst shooting.
Pros: Sharp, tilting, touch-screen display. Hinged flash with bounce. Quick autofocus. Clean JPG output through ISO 3200. Raw shooting support. Fast startup. Wi-Fi with NFC. Includes good starter lens.
Cons: No EVF option. Burst shooting limited to 3.5fps. Lacks shoe and mic input. Limited burst shooting in Raw.
Summary: The Lumix GF6 is Panasonic's latest consumer mirrorless system camera, although is pitched higher than previous GF models. It replaces the GF5 with among other things an updated 16 Megapixel sensor, a tilting 3 inch 1040k dot LCD screen, and built in Wifi with NFC tap-to-connect for sharing photos.
Pros: 3 inch 1040k flip-over touch-screen., Self shot mode., Quick and easy Wifi sharing with NFC., Excellent low-light AF performance., Stop motion intervalometer., Panorama Shot mode.
Cons: Lacks hotshoe and accessory EVF., Lacks focus peaking., Movie button hard to activate.
Summary: Image: The panorama mode can be a bit hit and miss. Here, it has worked well and recorded to its maximum angle

Summary: It has to be said. Once you've handled Panasonic’s top shelf Four Thirds models such as the GX7, pretty much everything else on offer seems like small beer. So forgive me if I seem underwhelmed with the GF6. It's probably better than the impression of it you'll get from this review.
Summary: Panasonic Lumix GF6 is a good camera that produces good quality images. It comes filled with features such as creative filters, various SCN modes and Wi-Fi and NFC as well for those who wish to transfer images instantly.
Summary: Everyone wants a swappy-lens compact camera. That's clear, but what's less clear is how much we're willing to compromise on DSLR-style features in the pursuit of smallness. Sony has shown with its NEX-7 that, if you're prepared to pay, you really can have it all in a more petite body.
Pros: Excellent image quality, Wide range of lenses, Articulated LCD, Fast auto-focus
Cons: Muddled user interface, Flaky macro performance with kit lens
