Panasonic's 16megapixel Lumix G6 unveiled, pushes the midrange with 7fps burst, NFC, WiFi

Panasonic has just announced a new mid-range Micro Four Thirds camera, the Lumix G6, that brings a solid list of specs for a mid-range camera. The 16-megapixel shooter can fire at a respectable 7fps in burst mode, has a top sensitivity of ISO 25,600 and like the recently launched Lumix GF6, has WiFi and NFC for device syncing. It also sports a 1,440K-dot OLED LVF, 0.5 second startup time, 3-inch, 1,036K-dot touchscreen with 180 degrees swivel and 270 degrees of tilt, new Venus image engine and full-area touch AF. It’ll likely cheer hard-core video fans as well since it packs a similar sensor to the popular GH2 / GH3 models, along with 1080/60p video, AVCHD or MP4 recording, stereo audio, live autofocus and Touch AF that allows “professional-like rack focusing.” There’s no pricing or availability yet, but expect it to cost considerably less than the flagship Lumix GH-3‘s $1,500 sticker — which may pose a quandary for shoppers on the fence about that model.
