Leaked Hands-On Reveals New Beginner-Friendly Lumix GF6

By Jamie Condliffe on at

A leaked hands-on by TechRadar reveals Panasonic's new Lumix GF6: a beginner-friendly interchangeable lens shooter, that fills a gap between compact point-and-shoots and more complex mirrorless and DSLR cameras.

According to the hands-on, the new camera includes the same 16-megapixel sensor as Panasonic's GX1, alongside built-in NFC, Wi-Fi, a tilting electrostatic touchscreen, and a new Venus engine which should, apparently, help with imaging performance. After a brief hands-on, our brothers at TechRadar seemed impressed by the responsiveness of the touchscreen, and a new retouch function, which allows for some in-camera editing.

According to TechRadar, the camera will be priced at around $650, which will include a 14-42mm kit lens. There's no word on when the camera will be available. [TechRadar via Engadget]
