Secaucus, N.J. — Panasonic formally introduced its DMC-GF6 digital single-lens mirrorless camera to the U.S. market Monday, calling it “the most compact” Lumix G-series model to date.

Panasonic’s GF6 (shipping in June at a $700 street retail) features a new 16–megapixel Live MOS sensor, and a new Venus Engine image processor for high sensitivity and low noise, achieving a maximum ISO 25,600 (in extended mode).

There are 19 creative control modes, including Self Shot, Creative Panorama and Stop Motion Animation.

A high-precision Light Speed autofocus (AF) system is included, adding full-time AF and tracking AF for stills and video recording.

Panasonic said the newly integrated Low Light AF enables accurate focusing on the subject even in low-lit situations.

The camera is ready to shoot in only 0.5 seconds after start-up.

The GF6 also adds Wi-Fi connectivity featuring nearfield communication (NFC) technology, enabling connections to smartphone/tablets with one touch.

An Instant Transfer function sends photos to the smartphone/tablet immediately after shooting.

Video is captured in 1,920 by 1,080 resolution at 60i (60Hz) FullHD video in AVCHD with stereo sound.

The P/A/S/M mode in video recording is also available for more expressive creation of motion-picture footage.

Also included is a built-in flash (GN6.3 ISO160・m / GN5.0 ISO100・m) and 3.0-inch 180-degree tilting monitor.
