Today, Panasonic Canada is confirming five new products for Canada. First up is the Panasonic Lumix DMF-LF1 which is the most compact camera to ever feature a built-in EVF and was described here last week.
Second is the all-new mid-range mirrorless Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6. This is a largish model for being mirrorless with a deep grip and built-in EVF with eye-start sensor. At its core is a 16 megapixels CMOS sensor capable of shooting continuously at 7 FPS until the memory card fills up for JPEG or up to 9 RAW images. As with its predecessor, the G6 offers full manual-controls with a traditional mode-dial and a single control-dial. A powerful battery lets the G6 manage 350 shots-per-charge according to the CIPA standard.
The next product is the very compact Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 which features the same 16 megapixels Micro Four-Thirds sensor as its larger sibling. A less powerful processor still lets it shoot continuously a respectable 4.2 FPS while achieving a battery-life of 330 shots-per-charge according to the CIPA standard.
The GF6 also offers full manual-controls which are accessible using a traditional mode-dial and a single control-dial. The slim body features a small grip and rounded top-plate with a built-in flash but no hot-shoe.
The headline addition to the G6 and GF6, besides the low-noise Micro Four-Thirds sensor, is wireless connectivity in the form of built-in WiFi and NFC which allows to transfer of images by tapping with another compatible device.
The fourth product is a redesigned 10X optical zoom lens with built-in image stabilization. This Micro Four-Thirds mount lens has a focal-range going from 14 to 140mm, like its predecessor, albeit with a brighter maximum aperture range throughout the zoom. It features a quiet focus-motor for use during movie-capture.
The last product is neither a camera nor a lens, so we know much less about it. For the curious, it is the WiFi-enabled HX-A100 Wearable Camcorder shown here.
Exact pricing and availability dates in Canada have not be announced yet for any of these products.
