The latest entry in Panasonic's Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera line is the Lumix DMC-GF6.
The GF family has traditionally been styled like a point-and-shoot camera with the ability to change lenses. It's now paired with the Lumix G Vario 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II ASPH Mega OIS zoom lens, which is significantly smaller than the older version of the lens that was bundled with previous GF cameras.
In addition to Wi-Fi, which is becoming more and more common in digital cameras, the GF6 supports Near Field Communication (NFC). When used with a compatible phone, this allows pairing via a single touch, rather than the sometimes-complicated method of setting up a peer-to-peer network between your phone and camera. In addition to sharing, you'll be able to use your phone or tablet to control the camera, complete with a Live View feed on its screen.
The image sensor boasts a 16-megapixel resolution. It can go as high as ISO 3200 in standard mode, but also supports extended sensitivity as high as ISO 25600. The rear LCD is hinged, a first for the GF series, and can face all the way forward so that you can easily capture self portraits. It's three inches in size and features a 1,040k-dot resolution.
Despite being compact, the GF6 features a Mode Dial on its top plate, a feature that is sometimes absent from smaller mirrorless cameras. There's also a toggle switch that can enable or disable Intelligent Automatic shooting, and a dedicated movie record button. The rear features a control wheel and buttons to activate Exposure Control and the Drive Mode, as well as two Function buttons. There is a built-in flash, but there's no hot shoe or accessory port; you'll have to look at Panasonic's more advanced GX, G, or GH cameras for access to those features.
