Near Field Communications added to Lumix GF6 for quick image sharing
Details relating to an upcoming Panasonic camera have leaked online. The Lumix GF6, an upcoming mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera expected to be announced on April 9th, is seen to have the same 16-megapixel sensor as used in the Lumix GX1, improving on the Lumix GF5, as well as built-in NFC for quick sharing of photos and videos between the camera and other devices.
The review by TechRadar appeared online briefly before being pulled from view, and included a number of photos of the camera as part of the post, writes PetaPixel. Details found on the now-removed Google Cache shows the Lumix GX1 as having a touchscreen with 180-degree tilting, image processing provided by a new Venus engine, in-camera effects, in-camera editing tools, a mode dial, and built-in Wi-Fi alongside the NFC.
It is suggested that the camera will cost around $680 when it goes on sale in the future, accompanied by a 14-22mm kit lens.
