Panasonic Lumix GH6 Overview | Pictures Weblog


Introduction

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 is a flagship Micro Four Thirds sensor mirrorless camera aimed at both videographers and stills photographers.

Successor to the popular GH5 and GH5 II cameras, this 2022 model now features up to 5.7K 60p 10-bit internal video with unlimited recording and Apple ProRes 422 HQ support, a brand new 25.2 megapixel sensor with no low-pass filter, and the latest high-speed and high-performance Venus Engine.

Other key new improvements include an updated contrast-detect autofocus system with a new AF algorithm and 315 focus points, expanded ISO range of 50-25600, dual CFexpress card (Type B) and UHS-II V90 SD memory card slots, improved Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser) now worth up to 7.5-stops slower shutter speed, and 75fps burst shooting mode at full 25 megapixel resolution (AF-S mode only).

The splash- and dust-proof GH6 also offers built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, 1/8000th top shutter speed, 1/250th second flash sync speed, 1,728-zone metering system, a 3,680K-dot OLED electronic viewfinder with 120fps frame rate, a 1.84M pixel 3-inch swivelling and tilting LCD screen, touchscreen control system with touch-based functions like Touch AF/AE and Touch Shutter, a completely silent electronic shutter, support for USB-C charging and 14 (AFS) / 8 (AFC) fps burst shooting.

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 is made in China. It’s available now in black only, priced at £1999 / $2199 body only, £2199 with the standard 12-60mm f3.5-5.6 lens, and £2599 / $2799 with the Leica 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 lens.

Ease of Use




Panasonic Lumix GH6

Measuring 138.4 x 100.3 x 99.6mm / 5.45 x 3.95 x 3.92in. and weighing 739g / 1.63lb body only, the Panasonic Lumix GH6 is significantly larger and heavier than the GH5 II model that it effectively succeeds, which measures 138.5 x 98.1 x 87.4mm and weighs 647g.

This is largely due to the heat-sink and forced-cooling fan mechanism that Panasonic have integrated into the design of the GH6, which helps to provide impressively unlimited recording times in every available video mode that the camera offers.

The downside is that the camera is noticeably deeper than the GH5/II by 12mm, something that is particularly evident in the rear LCD screen area which protrudes quite a long way out from the back of the camera.

The GH6’s body is made out of magnesium alloy, with a full die-cast front and rear frame. Every joint, dial, and button is sealed to ensure that the GH6 is splash/dust-proof and also freeze-proof down to -10 degrees Celsius.

The camera has a shutter release life of 200,000 shots. As with the previous GH5 and GH5 II models, this is one of the most well-constructed Panasonic cameras that we’ve ever reviewed, and should stand up to some serious abuse.

The GH6 ships either body only, with the Panasonic 12-60mm f3.5-5.6 lens, or with the excellent Leica 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 lens that we reviewed it with.

Despite the fast maximum apertures on offer, the Leica 12-60mm optic is still relatively small and light, and delivers great image quality whilst being fast to focus and completely silent, perfect for video use.

Whereas optional battery grips were available for the previous GH5 and GH5 Mark II models, Panasonic have taken the rather strange decision not to make one for the new GH6. So there’s no way to house an extra battery to extend the overall battery life or make the camera bigger for better handling with longer, heavier lenses.




Panasonic Lumix GH6

Panasonic have once again significantly upgraded the image stabilisation system on the GH6. The Dual I.S. system incorporates a new super high-precision gyro sensor with a new algorithm to combine the 2-axis stabilisation from the lens (if it has OIS built-in) and 5-axis stabilisation from the camera body, resulting in compensation for up to 7.5-stops slower shutter speed, which impressively is 1 stop better than the already excellent GH5 II.

Unlike a conventional DSLR camera, or indeed most modern rival mirrorless cameras, which typically use a phase detection auto-focus system, the Panasonic Lumix GH6 continues to employ a contrast detection based AF system, similar to that more commonly used by compact cameras.

The Panasonic GH6 continues to use the same DFD contrast-based auto-focusing system that all previous GH-series cameras have employed – anyone expecting Panasonic to implement phase-detection on this new model will be sorely disappointed.

It does offer more AF areas though, increased from 225 on the previous GH5 series cameras to 315 AF points on the GH6. Also Panasonic have updated their AF algorithms to offer faster performance and less visible pulsing than before.

There are a wide range of AF modes on offer, including Tracking, Full Area, Zone (Horz/Vert), Zone , 1-Area+, 1-Area and Pinpoint, with the option to enable the Human Detection, Face/Eye Detection and Animal+Human Recognition auto-focusing algorithms for every AF mode except Pinpoint.

In practice, there were few occasions when the GH6 failed to lock onto the subject, especially when using the centre AF point, resulting in a generally responsive and importantly reliable AF system for most subjects.

Having said that, it did struggle a little more often than desired with erratic, fast-moving subjects such as sports and wildlife, and it definitely still lags behind the best phase-detect AF systems from other mirrorless camera manufacturers.

On the front of the Panasonic Lumix GH6 is a small focus-assist and self-timer indicator lamp, lens release button, two customisable unmarked Function buttons, metal lens mount and a flash sync socket.




Panasonic Lumix GH6

Brand new to the GH6 is a second, additional one-touch movie record button finished in a vibrant red which is perfect for using with the camera in portrait orientation.

A direct consequence of the GH6’s size increase is the sculpted, rubberised hand-grip that’s even deeper and therefore nicer to use than the one on the GH5 cameras. It’s easily big enough to fit three, if not four, fingers around it.

By default the Fn4 button (the higher one on the front) enlarges the Live Display during video recording whilst the lower Fn3 button cleverly toggles between showing a live preview of the effects of the current aperture (effectively a digital version of Depth of Field Preview) and the current shutter speed.

The latter proves especially useful for beginners, providing a visible way of checking how different shutter speeds will affect the capture of different subjects – running water is a good example.

The majority of the GH6’s exterior is matt black plastic, with the handgrip, front panel and left-hand compartments finished in a more tactile rubberised coating.

Found on top of the Panasonic GH6 are the burst mode/bracketing/self-timer/time-lapse dial on the left, external flash hotshoe, stereo microphones, lockable shooting mode dial surrounded by the on/off switch, shutter release button, front and rear control dials, white balance, ISO and exposure compensation buttons, audio information button and a large one-touch movie record button that’s bright red. There’s also a tiny LED to indicate if wi-fi is on or off or if USB charging is in operation.

The row of white balance, ISO and exposure compensation buttons make it extremely easy to access the camera’s key exposure controls, while the dual control dials make it straightforward to use the fully Manual shooting mode.

The native ISO range of both the GH5 II and the GH6 is 100-25,600, but on the GH6 it can be extended down to ISO 50 if required for both stills and video. Note that for video, the maximum level is 12800 ISO on both cameras.




Panasonic Lumix GH6

The GH6 has both a traditional mechanical shutter and a silent electronic shutter, which as well as not spooking your subject ensures that it’s completely sharp by avoiding pixel shifting. The Delay Shutter option helps to remove the effect of hand-shake by releasing the shutter after a specified time (8, 4, 2 or 1 seconds).

The start-up time from turning the Lumix GH6 on to being ready to take a photo is impressively quick at less than a second. It takes about 1/2 second to store a JPEG image, allowing you to keep shooting as they are being recorded onto the memory card – there is no perceptible LCD blackout between each image. Storing a single RAW image takes around 1 second and doesn’t lock up the camera in any way – you can use the menu system or shoot another image while the first file is being written to memory.

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 has a good continuous shooting mode which enables you to take 14 frames per second using the mechanical shutter with the focus and exposure locked at the first frame or a much slower 8fps with full-time AF tracking.

The new model can only shoot continuously for up to 95 JPEGs or 65 RAW files, though, compared to 999 JPEG or 108 RAW files for the GH5 II.

The GH6 does also offer a headline grabbing 75fps mode at full 25 megapixel resolution for up to 200 JPEG or Raw images, but this is sadly limited to AF-S mode only using the electronic shutter, so it’s not suited to sports and wildlife photography.

The lockable shooting mode dial on top of the camera lets you choose from the different exposure modes. The usual selection of Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Manual are available for the more experienced photographers.

Additionally there are 4 custom modes, marked C1, C2, C3 and C4, which allow you to configure your favourite settings and quickly access them, Intelligent Auto for less experienced users, and the Creative Movie mode which provides access to all of the camera’s extensive range of video options.

The Panasonic Lumix GH6’s range of 8 different filter effects, which were denoted by an artist’s palette on the GH5’s shooting mode dial, are now only accessible via the main menu system (effectively replaced by the C4 mode). There are also 15 different customisable Photo Styles which still allow full control of the camera’s settings.




Panasonic Lumix GH6

The red movie record buttons on the top and front of the camera allow you to start recording a movie with a single push of a button and then stop recording by pressing the same button, regardless of which shooting mode is currently selected. This is a lot more intuitive than having to select the movie mode then press the shutter button, although you can still start/stop movie recording via the GH6’s shutter button if you wish.

The Creative Movie shooting mode, accessed via the mode dial on top of the GH6, allows you to set the shutter speed, aperture or both settings manually during recording (a Program option is also available). Changing the shutter speed is especially suitable for shooting fast-moving subjects, whilst the ability to control the aperture is convenient when there are several subjects in the frame positioned at different distances.

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 has a plethora of movie options, making it one of, if not the, the most full-featured interchangeable lens cameras on the market in terms of video. It also represents a big step forward when it comes to video specs and performance, even compared to the already very capable GH5 II model.

The new Panasonic GH6 model ups the ante by providing 5.7K 30p internal video recording available in ProRes 422 HQ and ProRes 422 for the first time in the LUMIX series.

It also offers 4:2:2 10-bit Cinema 4K 60p internal recording as well as simultaneous output in 4:2:2 10-bit Cinema 4K 60p over HDMI.

Other improvements include 4:2:0 10-bit 4K 120p (equivalent to 5x slow motion) and 4:2:2 10bit FHD 240p HFR (High Frame Rate) options, plus 5.7K 4:2:0 10-bit 60p/50p and 5.8K 30p/25p/24p 4:2:0 10-bit anamorphic 4:3 modes recorded utilising the full area of the sensor.

The LUMIX GH6 also contains V-Log/V-Gamut for the first time in the LUMIX G Series Micro Four Thirds camera line-up which provides 12+ stops of wide dynamic range, and there’s a brand new Dynamic Range Boost mode which expands it to 13+ stops.

The GH6 uses the full area of the sensor to record then downsamples it in-camera, which means that your framing won’t be cropped when composing.




Panasonic Lumix GH6

The GH6 is one of the few cameras that isn’t geographically limited, as you can choose from both NTSC and PAL settings, so you get the full range of frame rates regardless of where you bought the camera.

The Focus Transition tool allows you to create three focus points, between which the GH6 automatically shifts the focus at a constant speed. There’s a choice of five different speeds, and you can choose whether to start the transition immediately when recording begins or add a 5 or 10 second delay.

Importantly the GH6 offers unlimited video recording time in all modes by employing a forced-cooling fan mechanism to combat over-heating.

Dolby-quality stereo sound is recorded during video capture via the internal mics on top of the camera, which is a big improvement on the rather muffled noises recorded by most digital cameras, helped by the wind cut function which blocks out most of the noise from background wind.

You can also add the optional DMW-XLR1 XLR microphone adapter which attaches via the hotshoe and offers two XLR audio inputs with physical switches and dials for changing the levels, gain, and low cut filter of each input individually.

Live streaming is perhaps the biggest feature that has been removed from the new GH6. The GH5 M2 is capable of wireless live streaming in 1080/60p at 16Mbps via the LUMIX Sync smartphone app, or by connecting directly to a Wi-Fi router, but the GH6 rather surprisingly doesn’t support this at all. Maybe it will be added in a future firmware update.

On the rear of the Lumix GH6 is exactly the same 3 inch LCD screen with 100% scene coverage and 1,840K dot resolution as found on the GH5 II. The rotating, free-angle monitor, which is hinged on the left side of the camera (looking from the rear), can be flipped out and twisted through 270 degrees.

You can use the screen as a waist-level viewfinder, holding the camera overhead, and even for turning the GH6 on yourself for arm-length self-portraits. There’s also the added benefit of folding the screen away against the camera body to protect it when stored in a camera bag, preventing it from becoming marked or scratched.




Panasonic Lumix GH6

The 1,840K pixel screen offers a wider colour gamut and brightness that has been improved by 150% compared to the original GH5.

The Auto Power LCD function automatically detects the current lighting conditions and boosts the LCD backlighting by up to 40% when shooting outdoors in bright sunshine, helping to keep the screen visible. The handy level gauge indicates the two directions of horizontal lean and front/rear tilt.

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 inherits the GH5’s clever touchscreen interface. Panasonic have wisely restricted the amount of things that you can do by interacting with the screen, and indeed you can still operate everything on the camera without having to push and prod the LCD at all.

You would be missing out on a lot of genuinely useful functionality, though, which really improves the overall shooting experience. A clever feature called Touchpad AF allows you to move the focus point area with your finger on the LCD while you’re looking through the EVF.

The most immediately noticeable function is the ability to use the 1-area AF mode to focus on your main subject simply by touching it on the LCD. If the subject then moves, the Panasonic Lumix GH6 cleverly follows it around the screen using the the AF tracking function. If the subject exits the frame entirely, simply recompose and tap it again to start focusing. Impressive stuff that makes focusing on off-center subjects fast and intuitive.

It is a little too easy to accidentally press the screen and set the focus point to the wrong area for the current subject, but a simple tap in the middle of the LCD will center the AF point (or you can turn this feature off altogether). The size of the AF point itself can also be changed via an interactive onscreen slider.

If you prefer to manually focus rather than use the fast AF system, you can magnify any part of the subject by 1x, 5x or 10x by simply dragging the image around the screen. The final touchscreen ability from an image composition point of view is the ability to release the shutter, with a small icon on the right hand screen enabling this functionality, and then a single on-screen tap all that’s required to take the picture.

All of the menu options can be changed via the touchscreen interface, including the Main menu system. You can also control image playback by touching the screen, with the ability to tap a thumbnail to see the full-size version, scroll through your images by dragging them from side to side, and magnifying them up to 16x.




Panasonic Lumix GH6

The Panasonic GH6 has exactly the same electronic viewfinder as the GH5 II. The OLED unit has a large 1.52x (0.76x on 35mm equiv.) magnification, 100% field of view, 1000:1 contrast ratio and 3,680K-dot resolution, resulting in one of the better EVFs that we’ve used. The EVF (and also the main LCD screen) operate at a native rate of up to 120fps, twice as fast as the original GH5, which helps make it flicker-free.

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 has a time lapse function in which you can set the time interval and the number of images to take, plus a multi-exposure option that lets you combine up to four exposures in a single frame, while the Stop Motion Animation mode allows you to create unique stop motion videos. Sadly the 6K Photo modes, Post Focus and Focus Stacking options have all disappeared from the new GH6.

The Wi-Fi function (802.11ac) lets you use your smartphone to change the camera settings (focus setting, exposure compensation, ISO, WB and Photo Styles) and even fire the shutter button remotely (including interval video recordings), while the auto transfer function automatically backs up your photos onto a tablet. You can also use GPS data from your smartphone to record the shooting location onto your images. The Bluetooth option establishes a low-energy, permanent connection between the camera and a smart device for easier transfer of images.

On the rear of the Panasonic Lumix GH6, from left to right, is a Lock Lever for locking the current controls/settings, a Playback button, Af area button which is surrounded by the AF Type switch, separate AF On button, the rear control dial, which is used for, amongst other things, changing the aperture and shutter speed by turning from left to right and back again, and a thumb-controlled joystick. This is much better positioned than on the GH5 and allows you to quickly and easily select the AF point without taking your eyes off the subject.

Underneath are the Quick Menu, Back/Delete and Display buttons. In shooting mode, the Display button alternates between turning the display off, the main camera settings as icons, no settings at all, and an Info Display which shows the current key settings in a clear graphical format. You can additionally press the Q.Menu button and then use the navigation pad to move between the onscreen options.

The Q.Menu button provides quick access to most of the principal controls, including ISO speed, image size, image quality and white balance (there are 12 settings in total, depending upon the shooting mode selected). You can still access all of these options from the main menu system too.




Panasonic Lumix GH6

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 has a traditional 4-way navigation pad system with a circular scroll wheel and Menu/Set button in the centre. Unlike other G-series cameras, the four directions on the d-pad don’t have a specific function, other than to move through and select options, playback images etc. The circular scroll wheel can also accomplish many of the same things.

The main menu system on the GH6 is very clear and straight-forward to use and is accessed by pressing the Menu/Set button in the middle of the navigation pad. There are up to 6 main menus represented by a column of icons on the left of the screen, depending on which shooting mode you’re currently using, which then show up to 7 sub-menus each showing 8 options onscreen at once.

On the bottom of the Panasonic Lumix GH6 is a metal tripod socket, importantly in-line with the middle of the lens barrel, and the battery compartment housing the same DMW-BLK22 battery as found in the GH5 II. Battery life is a maximum of 380 still images / 100 minutes of video when using an SD memory card or 350 images / 90 minutes of video when using a CFexpress card.

On the right side are the Remote port for use with the optional remote shutter release and the dual CFexpress card (Type B) and UHS-II V90 SD memory card slots.

On the left is the Mic socket for use with a 3.5mm external microphone, and three connection ports, including a port for external headphones (again 3.5mm in size), USB-C port and a very welcome full-sized HDMI port for connecting the GH6 to a HD television or monitor.

Image Quality

All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 25M Fine JPEG image size option, which produces an average image size of around 12Mb.

The GH6 is the first Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera to push past the 20 megapixel barrier, utilising a brand new 25.2-megapixel Live MOS Sensor with no low-pass filter.

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 produced images of outstanding quality during the review period. It produces noise-free images at ISO 100 to 1600, with limited noise starting to appear at ISO 3200. ISO 6400 and 12800 exhibit quite visible noise and loss of fine detail, while the fastest setting of 25600 looks much better on paper than in reality.

The various Photo Styles and Filters allow you to quickly and easily customise the look of the camera’s JPEG and Raw images before you take them. The night photograph was excellent, with the maximum shutter speed of 60 seconds and Bulb mode of up to 30 minutes allowing you to capture plenty of light.

The High Resolution Mode successfully creates much larger 50 or 100 megapixel images and can be employed when the camera is mounted on a tripod and also hand-held. It’s still best reserved for use with non-moving subjects.

Noise

There are 10 different ISO settings available on the Panasonic Lumix GH6 which you can select at any time if the camera is in one of the creative shooting modes. Here are some 100% crops which show the noise levels for each ISO setting for both JPEG and RAW formats.

Night

The Panasonic Lumix GH6’s maximum shutter speed is 60 seconds and there’s also a Bulb option for exposures up to 30 minutes long, which is excellent news if you’re seriously interested in night photography.

The shot below was taken using a shutter speed of 30 seconds at ISO 100. If the Long Exposure NR main menu option is set to ON, the camera takes the same amount of time again to apply noise reduction, so for example at the 15 second setting the actual exposure takes 30 seconds.

Conclusion

The new Panasonic Lumix GH6 delivers virtually everything that an aspiring one-man/woman videographer could ever want from a hybrid camera.

Offering every conceivable combination of settings under the sun, commendably all with unlimited recording thanks to the integration of a heat-sink and fan, this really is the swiss-army-knife of the mirrorless world.

The only so-called “missing” feature is 8K recording, something that several full-frame rivals now offer, but we think that 5.7K/60p and 4K/120p recording and the plethora of other options on offer more than makes up for this.

Such a clear focus on movie-making doesn’t mean that the GH6 is less accomodating to photographers. With a brand new 25 megapixel sensor that finally breaks the 20mp barrier and 100-megapixel handheld high-resolution shooting, Panasonic clearly haven’t forgotten the stills shooter.

It’s not all good news, however, as several features from the GH5 II have completely disappeared from this new model, including 6K/4K Photo Modes, Focus Stacking and Post Focus, and Live Streaming. We don’t really know why any of these have been removed, or whether they’ll be added to the GH6 at a later date via a firmware update – we certainly hope so.

Also, the GH6 is the biggest and heaviest Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera to date, an unavoidable consequnce of its built-in fan – if you want your MFT camera to be small and unassuming, you’ll need to look elsewhere.

Finally, while the updated contrast-detection AF system is faster and more reliable than before, it still doesn’t compare that well to the best phase-detect AF systems from other mirrorless camera manufacturers, including the GH6’s main MFT rival, the OM System OM-1.

Overall, the much anticipated Panasonic GH6 has been well worth the wait. Compared to 2021’s incremental GH5 II release, the new GH6 represents a much bigger step forward, especially for videography where it simply has no real competition at its £$2000 price-point.

Review Roundup

Reviews of the Panasonic Lumix GH6 from around the web.

The mirrorless filmmaking world may have become more focussed on full-frame cameras since Panasonic’s GH Lumix series emerged, but the GH6 shows that there’s still life in the Micro Four Thirds sensor format. Small and lightweight but packed with a remarkable array of video options and excellent image quality, the GH6 also boasts superb handling and image stabilization and perhaps the best contrast-based autofocus yet seen on a Panasonic camera. It’s a dependable stills camera, too.

Independent filmmakers and creatives would struggle to find a camera with a more comprehensive list of high quality recording options. While some may feel that having a Micro Four Thirds sensor and contrast autofocus is outdated, the GH6 holds its own with cameras almost twice its price in terms of functionality and image quality and excels beyond the competition with unbeatable in-body stabilisation.
