The G6 is the entry into the serious micro four thirds category of camera. It seems to be made down to a price but there is no stinting on the essential camera controls. It is a little too close to a conventional DSLR in body volume, if not in mass. The...

Panasonic, the pioneers of Mirrorless Compact Camera System , often called “The DSLM”, have a successor to their popular G5, the G6, which we are reviewing today. For those not in the know, the Mirrorless cameras do away basically with ‘mirrors' that you...

With a higher-res screen, an OLED viewfinder and speedier response times, the Panasonic Lumix G6 is above all a more pleasant camera to use than the G5. On other fronts, it hasn't changed much. It's still a sort of "mini-SLR" that handles well and which...

We'd argue that the Lumix G6 is not only a step closer in closing the gap between DSLR and CSC cameras' capabilities, but that - in some respects - it's a step beyond. When it comes to value for money and feature set the G6 is more packed with...

This camera represents an evolutionary dead-end. Even though Panasonic's done a fine job making the G6 a great update of a camera we already thought was pretty decent, the tired 16-megapixel sensor at its heart just isn't all that great any more....
