The Panasonic Lumix GF6 is a new small, stylish and cutting-edge compact system camera. The GF6 features a Four Thirds-sized 16 megapixel Live MOS image sensor, Venus Engine processor (the same as that of the range-topping GH3), Light Speed AF system, a hinged touch-sensitive LCD screen which can be rotated by 180°, built-in pop-up flash, integrated Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity,etc.

The GF6 offers 1080i HD 1920 x 1080 movies and 720p HD 1280 x 720 movies at 60/50fps (NTSC/PAL) in the AVCHD (MPEG-4/H.264) format. In addition it can also record MP4 movies at 1080p HD 1920×1080, 720p 1280×720 and VGA 640×480 pixels at 30/25fps, useful as this format can currently be shared more easily. AVCHD offers almost double the recording time in HD quality, but software support is a little thin on the ground. Panasonic describe it as the best mode for playing back on a HD TV direct from the camera, with the newly-supported MP4 format best for email and playing on a computer.
