G6 is a single lens mirrorless camera

Panasonic has added two new digital cameras to its lineup, the first of which is the DMC-LF1. The camera falls into the company's Lumix range of point-and-shoot cameras. The camera features a 12-megapixel CMOS sensor and a 28-200 mm equivalent lens.

One of the big features of this camera is that it has integrated Wi-Fi and NFC allowing for remote control and wireless sharing of images.

The rear LCD is a 3.0-inch 920,000-dot resolution unit. The internal rechargeable battery is said to last for about 250 shots per charge, and the camera can also record full HD resolution video using AVCHD/MP4 formats with high quality stereo sound.

The camera is equipped with 7.1x optical zoom and that zoom range can be used problem occurring video as well. Panasonic also fits the camera with Power Optical Image Stabilizer with Active Mode to reduce blur while taking photos for recording video.


Panasonic does offer a Touch & Share feature that allows you pair the DMC-LF1 to a tablet or smartphone equipped with NFC technology by touching them together, allowing them to share images easily on the spot. The wireless companion device can also be used as a remote control for the camera allowing users to use the smartphone or tablet to activate the shutter, zoom, focus, and change settings such as shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, and more. The camera can also use the GPS connectivity from your smartphone or tablet to geotag images.
The DMC-LF1will cost $499.99 when it hits stores.

Panasonic has also unveiled a new micro four-thirds camera called the DMC-G6. The follow-up to the DMC-G5 promises the ability to shoot bursts at up to seven frames per second in full 16.05-megapixel resolution. It's also ready to shoot images only 0.5 seconds after it's turned on. The ISO range extends up to 25,600 and the camera features a high precision Light Speed autofocus system.


In addition to being able to take high-resolution still images, the DMC-G6 can also record full HD resolution video with stereo sound. Like the DMC-LF1, the DMC-G6 also features integrated Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC technology.

The camera will come in black, white, or silver colors. Pricing and availability details are unannounced at this time.
