Summary: Though the majority of the videos I produce are comprised of clips a few seconds to a few minutes in length, there are occasional events that require uninterrupted recording in excess of an hour. All of my other CSC cameras, regardless of how capable in other video respects (Sony RC10, A7, A6000), are artificially limited to 29 minutes clip length. Very annoying!
Summary: I purchased the G6 as a backup camera for the GH3 I own. I considered the GX7, but (at the time) it was considerably more expensive than the G6 and I do prefer the ergonomics of the G6 body style. For me, a deciding feature of G6 is the ability to reprogram the power zoom toogle to control exposure compensation. That gives you the equivalent of a camera with 2 control dials.
Summary: First, let me say that I like this camera and the lenses I have - the kit lens and a 45-200 zoom. It weighs half my Canon DSLR and less than the Olympus. I suppose that is because of all the plastic. Picture quality is excellent, in my opinion equal to the APS-C camera I have. The camera is very intuitive to use. Focus is fast as are startup and there is very little shutter lag. The stop action animation function is a hoot. High ISO quality is very good.
Summary: This was my first Micro 4/3 camera system and I am loving it so far. The best part of these camera is the small size both of the camera itself and the lenses. I did buy an adapter so I can use all of my Canon lenses as well but you cannot adjust aperture on the lens so I have tended to gravitate more toward using the smaller micro 4/3 lenses. The quality of the images coming out of the camera is very good both for stills and video work.
Excerpt: I bought this from QVC when they had a deal on it with the 14-42mm lens. I thought I could try it and send it back if I wasn't impressed. Well, the performance just blew me away for a camera this size! It easily out performs the Olympus E-P2 that I had (notice HAD!). The IQ is great for a small capable camera to take on holidays when you want to have a decent camera, but don't want to be roaming around with a huge weight over your shoulders.
Summary: This camera replaces a Canon D60 & a Canon T1i Rebel. It's lighter and takes the same or better quality pictures. I really appreciate the weight of it when having to take it places. Most of my camera work is fairly close and detailed, but it takes great shots of my dog and decent pictures in low light situations. I'm a convert!
Summary: Have had this camera for about a month. Nice, all around Versatile camera, especially for the sale price ($529). Not sure if I would opt for this model at the higher price point, though. I do think it is a great choice for the hybrid market and like the video functionality The articulating touch screen is extremely useful, plus the color and naturalness that comes through is a great selling point Was expecting slightly sharper images, even with the kit lens, and would...
Summary: I have to start that I use a Nikon D600 full frame DSLR. I purchased this camera for my wife, something that is more compact, lighter and hopefully easier to use. The "easier to use" was probably in my mind not hers. The camera is loaded with a lot of great features which include NFC, WiFi, touch screen interface and various select-able shooting modes which takes the guess work out of what can be challenging camera settings for ISO, aperture and shutter speed.
Summary: I've been using my g6 for professional video production for the past five months now, and I couldn't be more pleased. I have a very modest kit: g6 body, 14-42 kit lens, 50mm 1.4 canon FD (for interviews), bower 7.5mm fisheye, polarizer, tascam audio recorder, lav mic, and tripod. And it has been a rock solid investment, in both reliability and flexibility. My g6 has been put through a lot in a short time, due to daily use in a variety of situations.
