Panasonic announced the new digital single lens mirrorless LUMIX DMC-G6 camera for photo and video. Is not just an interchangeable lens camera, but also an advance digital photographic tool with attractive features. Features such as WI-FI connectivity, a digital live MOS sensor for high sensitivity image recording, advance noise reduction system, time lapse, stop motion animation and 19 in-camera filters effects.
The LUMIX G6 records in full HD 1920×1080 60p (60 Hz) in AVCHD progressive and MP4 at 28 Mbps. It also supports 1080/24p native mode with 24 Mbps in AVCHD format. Sound can be recorded in Dolby Digital using the built-in stereo microphone or with a 3.5mm terminal for external microphone. It has a 3-inch large, approximately 1,036K dot high-resolution monitor, that rotates 180° to the side and tilts 270° up and down.
The WI-FI feature lets users connect the camera to a smartphone/tablet and use them as a multi-capable remote shutter monitor. With the Instant Transfer Function, photos are automatically sent to the smartphone and tablet after shooting. In addition both photos and videos can be archived to a registered device (such as a PC) automatically via the wireless access point (router) at home.
For beginners of digital interchangeable lens system cameras the LUMIX G6 has an iA (Intelligent Auto) mode with a variety of shooting-assist functions. Intelligent scene selector, face recognition, and intelligent ISO control are among the functions included, but one that really got my attention is a food recognition mode. This mode detects the food on the dish and captures it.
