The newly announced G6 will sit between the GH3 and above the GF3. This camera features a 16MP CMOS sensor capable of low light shooting up to a native ISO 12,800 which is expandable to 25,600. The display and viewfinder have both received an upgrade from its predecessor to 1.44 million dots inside the EVF and a 1.04 million 3″ touch screen on the back. The G6 includes the ability to use the touch display to remove unwanted objects with an included Clear Retouch feature.
The G6 has full 1080p video up to 60fps with the awesome ability to use a 2.4x digital teleconverter like the GH2 and GH3. The camera also features a mic input so you can mount a mic on the it’s hot shoe. The feature that may slip by many readers is that this is the first Panasonic camera to support focus peaking while manual focussing. Wi-Fi and NFC support have also been added to the camera for simplified quick sharing.
The G6 comes with 23 preset modes and according to the specs page two of them are called “Cute Dessert” and “Sweet Child’s Face”. So if you’ve been wanting to capture cuter desserts or sweeter child’s faces this is the camera for you. Overall the upgrades and features seem like a modest upgrade over the previous G5 that was released less than a year ago. If you would like more information head over to Panasonic’s website.
