The Panasonic DMC-GF6 incorporates a new Live MOS Sensor that enables high resolution and high sensitivity image recording while minimizing the noise. The Venus Engine image processor is also newly developed and features advanced noise reduction systems. The controllable area of noise has been expanded by approx. 64x in size. This makes it possible to remove large blocks of noise which were earlier hard to detect and helps produce clear, smooth images. This is especially useful for low light shooting. The combination of the new Live MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine achieve ISO 3200 (Auto) and max. ISO 25600 (Extended).

With its wide variety of shooting options such as ‘Self Shot’ mode; ‘Creative Control’ providing 19 filters; and Stop Motion Animation function the Panasonic Lumix GF6 is not just a high quality camera. The popular ‘Creative Control’ mode has been upgraded by increasing the number of filters from 14 to 19 by adding new filters like Old Days, Sunshine, Bleach Bypass, Toy Pop and Fantasy in addition to the conventional Expressive, Retro, High Key, Sepia, High Dynamic, Soft Focus, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, One Point Color, Cross Process, Low Key, Toy Effect and Star Filter and Miniature Effect mode.
Panasonic Lumix G autofocus system
All cameras in the Lumix G range feature Contrast AF for their focus system. Compared with the Phase difference AF system, the Contrast AF boasts higher accuracy especially in shooting with a bright lens and small ‘F’ (focal ratio) value. Light Speed AF makes it possible to capture fast-moving subjects clearly. Additionally, AF Tracking enables consecutive shooting to capture moving subject in sharp focus.
