Panasonic Lumix G6

 

Is Panasonic still the king of compact system cameras?

Addition of NFC and Wi-fi welcome ; Impressive video ; Good design and size ; Outstanding adjustable touchscreen

Plasticy body in some areas ; High ISO performance weaker than DSLR rivals

As well as offering full manual stills capture control, the G6 also features 19 filters, all accessible through the 'Creative Control' mode. Two new settings also debut - a Creative Panorama function and Clear Retouch mode, both of which offer simple...

Old 16MP sensor ; Can't use Creative Control options in advanced exposure modes

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 review: compact system camera that's smaller than the DSLR it resembles yet costs more

 

Compact system camera smaller than the DSLR it resembles, yet priced higher

Well saturated colours and warm feel to images, tilt and swivel rear LCD, DSLR-style handling yet compact camera approachability, EVF comes with built-in eye sensor for automatic activation

Chunkier than most competitors who haven’t opted for the DSLR ape-ing design, feels slightly over-priced on launch

Although nothing revolutionary, the G6 fits the bill for anyone wanting compact camera convenience but DSLR-style design.

Electronic / rolling shutter effect, Battery life could be better, Would be nice if Wi-Fi supported direct uploads to social media sites, rather than going via Lumix logon
