Panasonic announces Lumix GF6 with Wi-Fi and NFC

Panasonic has introduced the latest addition to its GF-series, the Lumix GF6 with Wi-Fi connectivity. This 16-megapixel camera features a mirrorless and single-lens design, and is aimed at those who want to take high-quality, low-noise shots in a wide variety of situations. We have a gallery of the camera, as well as a run-down of its specs, after the jump.

The GF6 with Wi-Fi features a Live MOS Sensor and a Venus Engine, offering ISO up to 25,600. Images come in sharp via the Light Speed AF system, which offers tracking and full-time auto focus for video recording. There’s also low-light auto focus, and when combined with a start-up shooting time of 0.5 seconds, photographers can use this device to shoot in fast-paced environments.

There are several different functions and modes, including Stop Motion Animation, Creative Panorama, and Self-Shot, as well as 19 photo effects with different filters for the Instagram-lover in you. There’s Clear Retouch for in-camera editing to remove blemishes and other unwanted parts of an image. There’s also the standard P/A/S/M modes, including for video recording, which goes up to full 1080p HD.

Once taken, an image can be easily transferred to a smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity and Panasonic’s Image App, which is available for both Android and iOS. In addition, photos can be taken and videos can be recorded remotely using a mobile device, which works as an external monitor and remote shutter. Focusing, zoom, and device settings can all be controlled from the device as well.
