LUMIX G Micro Compact System Digital Camera GF6 – The New Sleek, Stylish Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera Featuring High Picture Quality and Easy Sharing
The ultra-compact GF6 combines a high performance 16MP sensor with a host of creative features to take your photography to the next level. The first mirrorless system camera to offer Near Field Communication and built-in Wi-Fi functionality, the GF6 really is a whole lot of camera in a carry anywhere sized body.
LUMIX G Micro Four Thirds System
World’s 1st Mirrorless System
By adopting the Micro Four Thirds System standard and developing a camera that eliminates the mirror box and optical viewfinder unit, Panasonic revolutionised the world of DSLR cameras in September 2008 by introducing the world’s first mirrorless camera. Combining superb image quality, this made it possible to create a new Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera that features Full-time Live View, high-speed, high-precision contrast AF, full HD video recording, and more.
Large LIVE MOS Image Sensor
The size and type of sensor was a critical part in the development of Lumix G. 8x larger than the sensor used in a typical compact camera, and large enough to capture all the light coming through the lens without bending or distortion. The Micro Four Thirds sensor is almost as large as a Digital SLR APS-C sized sensor, but is designed to match the lens mount aperture perfectly, allowing the light to enter the camera in a straight line.
New 16MP LIVE MOS Sensor & Venus Engine Noise Reduction
The 16.0-megapixel Live MOS sensor and new Venus engine enable better resolution and high-definition textures. Three areas of advanced NR realise image smoothing in specific areas whilst maintaining natural detail. Sensitivity can now be extended to ISO25600 for extreme low light shooting.
Built-in Wi-Fi for Enhanced Network Functions
The inclusion of Wi-Fi functionality adds a whole new level of control and convenience. This new functionality includes: Remote control by smartphone or tablet device. Automatic back-up of photos to a Wi-Fi enabled tablet. Playback, Print or Transfer your pictures to other networked devices in your home. You can even add the location to your pictures using the GPS function of the tablet or phone that the camera is linked with.
Remote Shooting & Remote View with Tablet or Smartphone
Use your Smartphone or tablet device to see the live image through the camera lens and then take the shot. Using the “Peer to Peer” or Wi-Fi function in the camera, the picture can be monitored externally and controlled remotely by a connected smart device. Controlling device requires “Panasonic Image App” for iOS / Android*.
*Controlling device requires “Panasonic Image App” for iOS / Android.
Wireless NFC – World’s First for Interchangeable Lens System Camera
As a World 1st, Panasonic brings NFC (Near Field Communication) capability in to this system camera model utilising the latest smart communication technology. NFC compatible products can share or be ready to share data just by touching the two devices or bringing them close together.
Functionality and Ease of Use
1.04m pixels, 3.0 Inch, 180-degree Tilt, Touch Screen LCD
The ultra-high resolution touch screen LCD is tilt able through 180 degrees, resulting in the ability to take low-level shots and even self-shooting when the screen is in the uppermost position. And with new in-cell touch sensor technology, that eliminates the need for a touch filter, the screen delivers improved visibility and up to 25% less power consumption.
Self-picture Mode with 4-shot Option
Tilting the LCD 180-degree automatically turns the Self Shot Mode ON. Watch the screen as you shoot, for easy self-portrait framing – and more shutter opportunities. An option to automatically take up to four shots is provided as well as a “Soft Skin” mode that optimises skin texture to make the photo even more beautiful.
New Touch-AE Function
Simply touch an area on the screen where you want the exposure to be corrected and the adjustment is automatically made. Touch AE mode can be set to one of the function buttons for easy and quick access.
4.2fps High Speed Burst Shooting with Full Resolution
Two high-speed burst modes are offered. At full resolution (16MP) it is possible to capture up to 4.2 frames per second. Also when the action is mega fast, there is the option of super high speed which shoots 20 fps at a resolution of 4 Megapixels.
Creative Shooting Controls
19 Creative Effect Filters
Previous models have offered up to 14 creative filter effects that help you add a unique look to your photos in camera. 5 new effects have been added for 2013 making an industry leading 19 effects in all.
Stop-motion Animation Mode
Endless fun can be had by creating your own stop-motion movies. Create a whole new world of motion by positioning your subject, shooting a still frame, then repositioning it and shooting again.
Clear Re-touch Mode
Your photos can be touched-up in camera with the new Clear Re-touch mode. Review your picture and remove unwanted parts of the image such as telephone lines or birds flying across your shot.
Creative Panorama Mode
The Ultra-wide shooting panorama mode not only allows you to capture vast landscapes in one complete picture, but this camera also offers “Creative Panorama” mode which allows you to choose from up to 15 filter effects that can be applied to your shot.
Built-in Pop-up Flash (GN6.3)
Despite the compact body size of the camera, a pop-up flash is provided for those occasions when you need a little extra light. The guide number of 6.3 means the flash will illuminate objects up to approximately 6 feet from the camera when using the kit lens.
High Quality Kit Lens Supplied
LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ll ASPH./MEGA O.I.S.
Supplied as a high quality kit lens, the H-FS1442A is a standard zoom lens that combines compactness with high optical performance. Within the 9 elements, two Aspherical lenses contribute to the high resolution, coupled with “silent design” HD video performance and Mega OIS make this a great all round lens for day to day shooting.
The Largest Range of Compatible Interchangeable Lenses
Whatever photo opportunity arises, the growing number of creative lenses available for the Micro Four Thirds System ensures that you won’t miss out. Over 30 models from manufacturers such as Olympus, Sigma, Leica and, of course, Panasonic are already available with more being added regularly. This makes it the largest lens line-up for a mirrorless camera system.
