Summary: This is my first compact camera, only had experience with point and shoot cameras before. I did lots of research online before purchasing this one; the very positive review from cameralabs.com ([...]) plays an important role for my decision-making, and it turns out that the camera is GREAT, if you know a little bit on how to use it. It was depressing at first since the camera has so many functions, while I have little experience in handling it well.
Instructions did not help & now I am stuck with the camera

Summary: I would consider buying another, less complicated and less expensive camera. Tutorial not helpful. Downloaded program to transfer pictures wirelessly. Did not work & pictures stuck on camera unless you load the old way. Automatic photo settings turned out dark and light pictures. I am stuck with and 500.00 camera for the next few years. They do not offer exchange or return after 90 days. Took that long to try to figure it out.
Summary: This camera takes great pictures. I used it in Grand Caynon and they came out amazing, even though we hadnt learned how to properly use it yet. Its light weight too unlike some other higher end cameras.
Summary: This is my first compact system camera. I got Panasonic, as my point shot lumix works really well. But now I'm more interested in the use of macros and improve the quality with other functions. I chose a compact system as I used to have a big cannon years ago and it was a hassle to carry it all over. This is just a good size (unless you are with a tele lens). I've used it for the last 4 weeks and I'm very happy with the images.
Excerpt: You cannot do better for the price. A beginner can take photos in two automatic modes and be amazed at the results. Everyone else can choose whatever they like. Wireless control and picture transfer is great. This camera comes with two manuals. The first is a short primer and comes in the box....
Excerpt: I use the camera for amateur shooting and for me it's perfect. It has a lot of automatic controls which gives me a feel for what the camera can do, while also providing enough manual flexibility to experiment. Images are really crisp and detailed, though tend to grain up in low light conditions. The camera is somewhat heavy and bulkier than I'd like, but certainly slimmer than an SLR which I know I wouldn't want to carry around.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color
Summary: Length:: 3:56 Mins What an awesome camera! It is amazing how much this camera delivers for its compact size and price. This is my 4th model of GF series, where I previously owned GF1, GF2 & GF3. I also have owned other Panasonic m43 models as well, such as GH1, G3 and G5. Out of them all, I find GF6 to be the most charming and thrilling camera. If I would give it a fitting name like I do with pets, I would call it "Snappy", because of how well it performs.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix GF6 with the 14-42mm lens kit is an amazing camera to someone like myself who has been using small point and shoot cameras for years. The Lumix GF6 marks my graduation to a "real camera". This camera looks great. It is a solid piece of equipment and everything works. The pictures it takes using the iA (AUTO) setting allowed me to start taking quality photographs without getting very far into setting up the onboard protocols.
