Summary: The Panasonic Lumix GF6 is, by any standard, a great little camera. It’s not completely fault-free of course; we weren’t keen on some of the fiddly touch-screen controls, and the JPEG sharpening is a bit too harsh, but we love the versatile and accessible manual controls, the tilt-up monitor screen, the excellent build quality and the nicely understated style of the design, not to mention the excellent value for money.
Pros: Tilting monitor; Versatile controls; Image quality; Noise control
Excerpt: The Panasonic GF6 is the least expensive compact system camera (CSC) in the range, but it looks considerably more upmarket than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 that it replaces. There's a mode dial on top, which demonstrates that this is more than just a point-and-shoot camera. The 3in touchscreen can tilt up, down and flip right over for self-portraits. It's a little wider and deeper than the GF5, but the extra space makes it a more comfortable fit in large hands.
Conclusion: The 16MP GF6 is an exceptional CSC, with some advanced features and excellent handling. The image quality is extremely good, with little or no chromatic aberration and exceptionally low noise levels even at higher ISOs. The high quality 3in 1040k-dot flip-out touchscreen LCD makes focusing and viewing images a real pleasure.
Summary: Beginner-friendly compact system camera gets an overhaul
Pros: Excellent screen, Digital filters, Built in Wi-Fi, Image quality is excellent, while the flexibility of the screen is useful for capturing images from awkward angles. The fact that there's no viewfinder is almost made up for by this screen, which could only have been improved by being fully articulating. It's a bonus though that it flips up 180-degrees to face forwards for self-portraits.
Cons: Tricky to use Wi-Fi, Can't use filters in PASM, Bulkier than predecessor, Fortunately there's not too much to dislike about the Panasonic GF6, but the Wi-Fi functionality could seriously be improved to make it much more useful. It would also be nice to be able to use the digital filters while shooting in manual and semi-automatic modes.
Conclusion: The GF6 is more ‘˜revolution' than ‘˜evolution' when looking at its predecessor, the GF5. Both the sensor and processor have been replaced with improved versions and it delivers increased image quality, resolution and overall performance across the board. The camera's technology keeps pace with the ever-advancing market and produces increased functionality and ease of use. For its price, the GF6 makes a bold and clear statement to its rivals.
Conclusion: What the GF6 gets right, it gets so brilliantly right that it makes us very happy indeed. The 16-megapixel sensor produces image quality that's closing the gap between Micro Four Thirds and the larger-sensor competition, while the super-fast autofocus, tilt-angle LCD screen and new mode-dial-featured design certainly have their individual perks. It's a nod to the original GF1, but brought bang up to date. Movie mode is great too.
Pros: Super-fast autofocus, great image quality, fully featured movie mode, new mode dial speeds up use, non-power-zoom kit lens keeps price down, responsive tilt-angle touchscreen
Cons: Battery life not good enough, slightly larger than GF5 predecessor, no hotshoe, Wi-Fi not compatible with enough services, screen reflections, exposure compensation can get accidentally locked into play
Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix GF6 is the latest entry level mirrorless camera from Panasonic, and features a 16 megapixel sensor, 3inch tilting touch screen and built in Wi-Fi as well as NFC.
Pros: Wi-Fi built in - remote operation, Great image quality, Panoramic mode, Lens hood provided with new kit lens, High resolution tilting touch-screen, Fast operation, focus, shot to shot, Access to a wide range of Micro Four Thirds lenses, Mode dial re-introduced, Stop motion animation
Cons: No flash hot-shoe, Loud shutter (compared to other mirrorless cameras), Would be nice if Wi-Fi supported direct uploads to social media sites, rather than going via Lumix logon

Summary: В целом камера получилась действительно сбалансированной. За вполне адекватные деньги вы получаете устройство, которое может вам предоставить качество, удобство, скорость, красоту и надежность. При этом, конечно, некоторым пользователям может не хватать разъемов для подключения микрофона или горячего башмака, но для этого есть старшие модели Panasonic G6 и GH3 . Все, что нужно для простого среднестатистического потребителя, в GF6 есть.
