Panasonic reveals Lumix G6 mirrorless, LF1 compact cameras
Panasonic has revealed a pair of new cameras in the Lumix line. The <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Lumix DMC-LF1</a> is a 12-megapixel compact camera with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC, while the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Lumix DMC-G6</a> is a 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds shooter capable of a high-speed burst mode at 7 frames per second, and a half-second booting time. <br />
<br />
The Lumix LF1 boasts an F2.0 Leica DC Vario-Summicron lens and a 1/1.7-inch high-sensitivity MOS sensor, which has a 7.1x optical zoom that is the 35mm equivalent of 28-200mm. The combined Wi-Fi and NFC operates a "Touch & Share" feature that allows the camera to be connected to a smartphone or tablet, to transfer images or use the mobile device as a remote control. The LF2 is able to record 1080i video at 50 and 60fps in AVCHD and MP4, a built in active optical image stabilizer helps smooth out shots and avoid blur, and a three-inch 920k-dot LCD is on the back for framing and image playback. <br />
<br />
The sensor inside the Lumix G6 is similar to that of the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>GH2</a> and <a href="" rel='nofollow'>GH3</a>, namely a live MOS sensor, which is paired with a new Venus Engine for signal processing with advanced noise reduction, and is capable of shooting at ISO25600. In order to perform its 7fps burst fire, the G6 has a Light Speed AF, along with a newly-integrated low light AF. On the back is a three-inch, 1036-dot flip-out touchscreen display, which is paired with a 1,440k-dot OLED live viewfinder, and the G6 is also capable of shooting 1080p video at 60fps in AVHCD Progressive and MP4. <br />
<br />
Panasonic has yet to reveal pricing or release dates for the Lumix LF1 and G6.
