The DMC-G6 integrates 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine featuring its advanced noise reduction systems. It effectively removes noise in multiple steps according to the noise characteristics, realizing both smoothness and sharpness according to the part of an image. In addition, the limit resolution is enhanced thanks to the precise detail reproduction and advanced Intelligent D-range Control ensures beautiful gradation with wider dynamic range than ever.
The Low Light AF in DMC-G6 gains higher performance in such as moonlight even without AF assist lamp to set focus on the subject more precisely. Combined with the Full-area Touch AF, it is possible to set focus on any point in the field of view which realizes intuitive focusing operation with free frame composition.
· Depending on the picture-taking conditions, this function may not work.
The DMC-G6 features high-speed Light Speed AF, making it possible to capture even the fast-moving subject clearly. Not only the accuracy but also the speed of AF in DMC-G6 surpasses the high-end DSLRs with Phase difference. The camera and the lens exchange the digital signal at max. 240 fps to minimize the time to focus. The DMC-G6 realizes the high speed burst shooting at 7 fps in 16.05-megapixel full resolution and max. 40 fps using an electronic shutter. Also, AF Tracking enables consecutive shooting to capture moving subject in sharp focus at 5 fps*.
* In 1-area-focusing AF mode.
The combination of the Live MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine achieves ISO3200 (Auto) and max. ISO 25600 (Extended).
Images to be shot in low-lit situations are stunningly clear with highly sharp resolution.
Several still images consecutively shot at different exposure levels are overlaid to produce a single composite picture without whiteout (over-exposure) or blackout (under-exposure).
The popular Creative Control mode is upgraded by increasing its filter option from 14 (for DMC-G5) to 19 (for DMC-G6) adding new Old Days, Sunshine*, Bleach Bypass, Toy Pop, Fantasy mode. Effect parameter of each mode is also adjustable.
With the new Creative Panorama function, it is possible to shoot a horizontal / vertical panoramic image with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous picture and to put on 15 filter effects of Creative Control*.
* Some filters of Creative Control cannot be used in Creative Panorama mode.
For beginners of Digital Single Lens Mirrorless cameras, iA (Intelligent Auto) mode supports taking 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 now integrates Food Recognition mode. It detects food on the dish and captures it to look delicious. The iA Plus mode lets you adjust defocusing area in the background, exposure compensation and white balance for more flexible control.
Clear Retouch makes it possible to erase unwanted objects or figures in an image by just tracing over them on monitor with a fingertip. They naturally disappear without destroying the image.
The Scene Guide* offers 23 sample pictures shot by professional photographers. You can choose the one closer to the situation they are going to shoot and optimum parameters for shooting the scene will be automatically set. Furthermore, shooting procedure, technical advice and recommended interchangeable lens for the scene can be shown for you to learn photography.
* Video recording using Scene Guide is not possible in some scenes.
The 3D-capable interchangeable lens, LUMIX G 12.5mm / F12, allows easier handling and instant 3D shooting with cameras without a special structure for 3D shooting. The 3D images taken with this lens are easy on the eyes when viewed on VIERA 3D TVs.
