Expand Your Vision With Creative Panorama Mode

With the Creative Panorama mode, you can shoot a horizontal/vertical panoramic image with consecutive shots, by overlaying the previous picture. The multiple images are stitched together in the camera to create one single wide image capturing your scene. After you've captured your image, you can add a filter effect using the Creative Control mode to get your desired look and feel to the photo. Some Creative Control filters cannot be used in Creative Panorama mode.

Full-HD Video With High Quality Sound and Creative Video

The DMC-G6 records stunningly smooth, high-resolution full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p video in AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4 / H.264) format, or MP4 format at 28 Mbps to play back on your PC or other device without conversion. High quality sound is enhanced by a Wind Cut function that blocks out most background noise from wind. The P / A / S / M mode delivers professional-like video recording, while Stop Motion Animation produces a stop motion video in-camera with pictures sequentially shot while moving the object by degrees. The object appears as if it's moving by itself.

With Time Lapse Shot you can leave the camera to record a stationary subject such as flowers coming into bloom. The series of images are combined in-camera to produce a time-lapse video.

Shoot Impressive Pictures With Scene Guide and iA (intelligent Auto) / iA Plus Mode

The Scene Guide offers 23 sample pictures shot by professional photographers (not possible in some video recording scenes). Choose the one closest to the situation you are shooting and the camera will set the optimum parameters for shooting that scene for you. You can also receive instructions, technical advice, and recommended interchangeable lenses for the scene so you can learn photography while making great pictures. For beginners of Digital Single Lens Mirrorless cameras, iA (Intelligent Auto) mode helps you make beautiful pictures with a variety of shooting-assist functions including AF Tracking, Intelligent D-range Control, Intelligent Scene Selector, Face Recognition and Intelligent ISO Control. The Intelligent Scene Selector even has a Food Recognition mode that detects food on the dish and captures it to look delicious. The iA Plus mode lets you adjust background focus, exposure compensation, and white balance for even more flexible control.

Full Line-Up of LUMIX G / LEICA DG Lenses

Panasonic offers a wide variety of digital interchangeable lenses including wide / standard / telephoto zoom lenses, single focal length lenses, and macro or fisheye lenses to cover any shooting situation. Every lens is exclusively designed for DSLM cameras to maximize digital technologies such as high-precision and high-speed Contrast AF.

Superior Image Quality, Sophisticated Design, Full-Area Touch AF and Touch AE

DMC-G6 boasts a compact, lightweight body that is stylishly designed for on-the-go shooting. The DMC-G6 integrates a 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine featuring an advanced noise reduction system. It effectively removes noise in multiple steps according to the noise characteristics, realizing both smoothness and sharpness according to the part of an image. Full-area Touch AF lets you set focus on any point in the field of view for quick and intuitive focusing. Touch AE (Auto Exposure) empowers you to set focus and exposure with a single touch on the subject displayed on the monitor.

OLED Live View Finder

The large, bright 1,440K-dot equivalent OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) LVF (Live View Finder) boasts approximately 100% field of view with a 3:2 aspect ratio for excellent viewing with precise color reproduction and astonishingly high contrast at 10,000:1. The display time lag is minimized dramatically compared with the predecessor DMC-G5. The image output between the LVF and the rear monitor is switched automatically with the eye sensor. Convenient options for sensitivity - high, low and off - reduce false operation during touching on the rear monitor.

  • How do I install firmware in my camera using an SD card?
    Digital Still Camera Firmware Update Guide.
