Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 News, Reviews, Tips

Lumix DMC-G6  Hands on:

Panasonic has just announced a new member to their lineup of mirrorless digital cameras: the Lumix DMC-G6. This camera succeeds the G5 and adds to it an array of performance and imaging enhancements, many of which are focused around improved movie recording and the integration of built-in wireless connectivity. Enhancing the G6 is the new Lumix G Vario 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH POWER O.I.S. lens, which is also an update of a former product and features an increased maximum aperture and lighter overall weight. 

G6 specification highlights: 
  • 16MP Live MOS sensor 
  • ISO 160-12,800 (extendable up to 25,600) 
  • 3.0", 1.04 million dot capacative LCD 
  • 1.44 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder with eye sensor
  • Full AVCHD 1080/60p video with full manual control (and 2.4X digital teleconverter option) 
  • 3.5mm external mic socket 
  • 7 frames per second continuous shooting, 5 fps with AF-tracking 
  • 23 Scene modes including 'Cute Desert' and 'Sweet Child's Face' 
  • iAuto mode can automatically detect when to use 9 scene modes 
  • 'Clear Retouch' touch gesture-based heal tool 

  1. What is the body made of??

    The body of this camera is made out of a composite material.
  2. Is it compatible with batteries from older models, or is it a new battery design?

    The G6 uses a 7.2V, 1200mAh battery, Panasonic product number DMW-BLC12. As far as I can tell, this is the same battery used by the G5, GH2, and FZ200.

  3.  Is is possible to log & transfer G6 recordings to FCP 7?

    Many Panasonic users may encountered import AVCHD files to FCP 7 problem. It is due to the format and codec incompatiblity. FCP only works in specific formats and video resolutions. The material from this camera has to be converted to FCP friendly codec, such as apple prores. So converting G6 footage to ProRes is the best method.
  4. How to remove the rendering time and smoothly edit G6 MTS files in FCP X ?

    As we know, Apple ProRes 422 codec MOV format is best supported video codec and format for FCP X. And Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac can help you easily transcode G6 MTS to Final Cut Pro ProRes 422 codec.
