After seeing several leaks for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and rumors of a 9th of April unveiling, well as luck would have it, the camera has since been officially announced. Considering that most of its specs were leaked prior to its announcement, there’s really nothing about its official specs that surprised us. In any case for those who might be hearing about this for the first time, or who might have missed out on the rumors, here’s what you will be able to expect should you head to the shop to give it a spin, or if you were to pick one up for yourself.
Featuring a 16MP sensor, the GF6 will come with WiFi and NFC connectivity, allowing for the wireless transfer of photos and videos to mobile devices or computers. The camera will be powered by Panasonic’s latest-generation Venus image processing engine, and will supposedly offer better noise filtering and improved dynamic range utilization. The GF6 will also come with a rear-LCD screen which can be tilted to almost 180 degrees, allowing the photographer to get in on some creative angles while still being to see their composition.
As expected of cameras of this day and age, the GF6 will support Full HD video capture along with a host of filters and touchups that can be done within the camera itself. Available towards the end of May, it will cost customers £499 with the 14-42mm II lens, or £649 with a double-zoom kit with the 45-150mm Mega O.I.S.
