Panasonic GF6 Official Press Photos and Specs Leaked One Day Early


Panasonic is expected to officially announce its new GF6 Micro Four Thirds camera tomorrow, but the camera has pretty much been outed already thanks to major leaks. Last week a review of the camera made a brief appearance on the Web, and today official press photos and specs were leaked as well.

The photos show a white version of the GF6 with its new mode dial and a new 1.04-million-dot 180-degree tilting LCD screen on the back.

The camera will have the same 16-megapixel sensor as the current Panasonic GX1, backed by a new Venus processing engine. ISO goes from 160-12800, there’s a faster startup time, and continuous shooting speed is a snappy 4.2 frames per second.

There’s a new “two-dimensional” noise reduction system for cleaner shots at higher ISOs. Further aiding low light shooting is a new low light focusing system for getting a lock on your subjects in the dark.

The camera will also feature built-in WiFi for wireless data transfers.

The GF6 will reportedly be available starting on April 24th for a price of around $680 when bundled with a new 14-42mm kit lens. Stay tuned for the official announcement tomorrow and higher-resolution product photos.
