Just Posted: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 Preview


We’ve just posted our Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 preview, covering Panasonic’s newest Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. The G6 comes barely a year after the G5, and offers several updates, including a 1.44 million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder and the same sensor as the GH2. Its body has also been restyled and the touch-sensitive technology of its fully-articulated screen has been upgraded. Like its little brother the GF6, the G6 also includes built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with Near Field Communication (NFC). Click the links below for our hands-on preview.



I just don’t like reflex design on an EVF mirrorless. I prefer Fuji’s (and Sony’s) approach Leica like lateral finders, with or without the OVF.

Just a personal opinion.


Love the body design!!! but it looks like it doesnt have a heart & soul (old sensor)… moving on to Olympus.


A bit sad that pany is going this way. I like their bodies more than oly, especially G series. But to use old sensors, when a noticeable better one is available… Seems my next cam will be from olympus after all, G3 that i have now is lacking some features i’d like to have, like build in level gauge and better DR at base iso


Meh x.001

Same sensor as that in the GH2? I am really disappointed.


The GH2 is capable of good IQ, but yes, the GH3 sensor is a big improvement. So I too was hoping for the GH3 sensor. Olympus put the OMD sensor in two lower end models, I figured Panasonic might do the same. If they had I would have bought the G6, which is I guess why Panasonic DIDN’T put the GH3 sensor in it. They don’t want me to skip the GH3 for a G6.


The GH2 is multi aspect 18MP if I remember correctly.


yep, but seems they are not using this feature in G6. Too bad, that would be at least some benefit.


According to the specifications, the multi-aspect ratio feature is retained.
