Panasonic launch new GF6

Professional quality in your pocket.

The latest edition to the Panasonic G series is the new Panasonic GF6. The GF shows off just how small you can make a camera when you remove bulky viewfinders and large mirror boxes. Utilising the Micro Four Thirds sensor all Panasonic G series cameras boast excellent resolution and remarkably low noise levels.

The new GF6 boasts all mod-cons. Packed into it’s tiny frame is the latest Venus Engine, the image processor that does all the computing side to give you excellent definition with low noise, a new Live-MOS sensor and ‘Lightspeed’ AF. What this really means is the GF6 is now the most up-to-date G ¬†series camera with 16 megapixels and a tweaked Auto Focus system to deliver faster, more accurate results.

As is becoming more common, the GF6 features some new technology borrowed from the Mobile phone market. Wifi is built into the camera allowing easy file transfer over a network and Near Field Communcation (NFC) allows two devices to be paired by touching them together, no more entering duplicate passwords and network addresses. All this means you can now easily shoot remotely from your smart phone or tablet and transfer images quickly between them.

The body has gone through a re-design since the GF5 and now has a twisting LCD screen that moves a full 180 degrees for handheld self portraits and group shots. A mode dial now takes up some space on the top of the camera allowing for quick mode changes between automatic and manual modes. Panasonic have added 5 new filters to bring them up to 19 in-built editing options which give your camera images the feel of Instagram.

The camera is expected to retail at £499 with the 14-42mm zoom lens. Available to pre-order here.

UPDATE: Stock due End of April! That means you’ll be able to try it for yourself at our Spring Show.
