Sensor

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 has a 25.2-Megapixel Micro Four Thirds Sensor Resolution. Though you don’t get a backlight stacked sensor, it is faster than the previous micro sensors of Panasonic.

That is partly because the sensor does not have any low pass filter. You do get an improved dynamic range with the GH6.

The photos from the Lumix GH6 capture great natural colors and skin tones. The low-light performance of the camera is also decent.

And the small sensor helps in a lot of ways.

First, its small size makes the camera smaller or makes room for other features to add to the camera, like a cooling fan.

And talking about the cooling fan, the sensor also dissipates heaters to a graphic sheet. That way, you can record high-frame videos without making the sensor hot.

The processor does an excellent job of reducing noise on the lower ISO.

The camera also has a Dynamic boost feature. You can use it if struggling with low-light scenes with this camera. The output with the dynamic boost on is pretty decent.

Processor

The Lumix GH6 has an improved Venus Engine Image Processor in the GH6. And the new, improved processor gets three new technologies.

The Intelligent Detail Processing, 2D Noise Reduction, and High Precision 3D Noise Reduction for video.

The Intelligent Detail Processing offers high-resolution, and the other two noise reduction technologies offer optimized noise reduction.

These technologies work excellently.

The noise reduction at the low 800 ISO is excellent both in videos and photos. And the upper ISO of up to 12800 also takes advantage of these technologies to reduce noise excellently.

This improved processor also has faster-writing speeds of up to 800 Mb/sec. There are also several autofocus features that the camera makes use of.

Thanks to the improved sensor, you will also get improved IBIS on the camera. Although the small sensor also makes it easier for the camera for better IBIS.

The processor also lets you record high frame rate videos like 5K, 4K, and Full HD Videos.

The processor of the Lumix GH6 is twice as powerful as its previous-gen cameras and gives you powerful new technologies.

AutoFocus

The Lumix GH6 provides you with about 225 Contrast-Detection points. Panasonic uses the “Depth From Defocus” system to improve the contrast-detection points.

The Depth From Defocus uses machine learning algorithms to handle the focus. And it made the Panasonic focus system faster and more accurate, but it still needs some work.

You may feel the system is not as fast as other hybrid systems available on the market. It can be difficult for you to shoot wildlife videos with subject tracking if some camouflage is happening.

The Panasonic GH6 can now detect the human eye, human body, and animal body. And tracking a subject with the human body is more accurate.

Panasonic also introduced a few firmware updates to the camera to improve autofocus.

The low-light performance of the autofocus is also decent. Once in body detection mode, you rarely miss the subject in the low light.

The autofocus of the Lumix GH6 has come far in its speed and accuracy. And you will be fine if you have the right lenses for the Depth to Defocus to work excellently.

Image Stabilization

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 offers one of the Best Image Stabilization Systems on the market. You will love the Improved Stabilization that the camera delivers handheld. 

The Panasonic claims to have 7.5 stops compensation, and it delivers excellently. You will rarely need a gimbal or a tripod with the camera.

And, you can easily record vlogs without worrying about anything. You can always turn on digital stabilization whenever you feel the IBIS is falling short.

That will take the overall stabilization a step further at the cost of a tiny crop. You can easily take 4K 120p handheld, and the video will be highly stable.

I was impressed by the improved Dual IS 2 of the camera.

Overall, The Panasonic Lumix GH6 offers one of the best IBIS on the market and delivers gimbal-like stability.

Shooting Speed

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 offers one of the fastest shooting speeds on the market.

You can take advantage of 14 FPS shooting speeds with a mechanical shutter for up to 65 raw and 95 JPEG frames.

Or you can use 75 FPS for up to 200 Raw frames or 200 JPEG frames with the electronic shutter.

Such a fast camera speed is vital for Sports and Action Photography. And remember to use single-point autofocus for the subjects moving perpendicular to the camera.

The continuous focus for the subjects moving toward the camera. If you have mixed the settings, you may get poor autofocus results in burst mode.

The autofocus of the Lumix GH6 performs decently in low-light situations with the burst mode. There will be a few frames that you may miss the focus on the subject.

But, you will have a lot of other frames to choose from with that fast speed.

Overall, the Panasonic Lumix GH6 offers fast continuous speeds to cater to professionals with Great autofocus performance.

Exposure

I can’t write the article without addressing the elephant in the room. The Panasonic Lumix GH6 has streaking issues and has not been fixed yet.

For those who don’t know, the photos taken from the Lumix GH6 have strips of highlights and shadows. Although, this only happens in extreme dynamic range.

But the glitch is more apparent in Raw files. For casual photographers streaking may not be an issue, but professionals are concerned.

And this is one of the main reasons that Panasonic pushed more than one firmware update. There is good news and bad news.

The bad news is that it is not yet completely fixed. And the good news is that the streaking issue has been reduced. But again, you will almost always see the issue in grading.

So when you buy the camera, check for this issue as well. Apart from the streaking issue, the Lumix GH6 has an ISO range from 100 to 25,600. But I recommend not to go above 12,800 ISO.

The processor of the camera can reduce noise decently until 12,800. And the compensation of the camera for the over or under-exposed scenario is also decent.

Overall, the Panasonic Lumix GH6 has decent exposure control, but the streaking issue may be a concern.

Panasonic Lumix GH6 Video Quality

You can check out the Panasonic Lumix GH6 Video Quality Below.

4K Video

The Lumix GH6 lets you record 4K at up to 60 FPS. That being said, the video quality of the camera is fantastic.

You will love the output when combined with its autofocus and IBIS. The Lumix GH6 allows you to use continuous and single-point autofocus in the 4K mode.

And the autofocus on this camera has been improved. I can’t stress enough the improved autofocus of the camera.

And the battery life you get with this camera for 4K is also impressive. You can record almost 80 minutes of video if you choose MP4 or QuickTime format.

And the IBIS on this camera with 4K produces beautiful slow-motion videos. And People who need to do cinematic shots more often may use it.

The camera also offers a ProRes mode but editing ProRes is restricted to Mac users only. You can improve the video quality and colors more in the post-production with different profiles like V-log etc.

The Lumix GH6 can also record 5K 30fps in ProRes 422 HQ and ProRes 422.

Overall, the 4K Video Recording on Lumix GH6 is clear and sharp.

Full HD Videos

The Lumix GH6 offers you to record Full HD videos at up to 240 FPS. And the Video quality is Clear and Sharp.

Let me tell you about the autofocus system in this mode. The improved autofocus of the camera is as good as other systems on the market. You will rarely miss the focus on your subject.

As a result, your slow-motion videos are very sharp.

I have used this camera in low-light for video recording, and the results were decent. The Lumix GH6 does not have a massive dynamic range because of its small sensor.

Hence you will not get excellent results at higher ISO in low light situations. But, the video results are excellent if you keep your ISO between 200 and 6400.

The continuous focus in the camera also works excellently. And you can easily track anything in slow motion with the help of human and animal detection technology.

Also, the IBIS on the camera helps you get that smooth B-roll videos. You can record audio in any high frame rate mode in this camera.

The Lumix GH6 allows you to create cinematic clips with minimum hiccups.

Vlogging

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 is an Excellent Camera for Vlogging. The camera feels sturdy in your hands, and the build quality is also excellent.

The Lumix GH6 is a weather-sealed mirrorless camera. And I tested almost every feature that you may use daily.

I felt very comfortable with the grip that Panasonic provided on this camera. But it can be tough to hold this camera for long in a single hand.

I constantly switched hands every 5-10 minutes while recording from the camera. And there are about 3-4 buttons in the front of the camera to which you can assign custom functions.

I had autofocus, record on/off, and aperture settings on the buttons.

With these buttons and the screen facing me, it was easy to change a few settings quickly while vlogging.

Now, let me tell you about the performance.

Autofocus is the feature that makes or breaks a good vlogging camera. And the autofocus of the Lumix GH6 is not its Best Strength.

Although, the autofocus has improved significantly after the recent firmware update. But, there is still room for improvement.

The camera keeps missing focus every now and then when you move either the subject or the camera rapidly.

So, the Autofocus and Image Stabilization is Excellent. Previous Panasonic cameras have been known for IBIS stability.

I used the camera with and without IBIS handheld and loved the results. Handheld Videos were very smooth and stable with minimum jerks.

Also, the camera lets you shoot high frame rate videos in 4K and Full HD.

And when combined with stabilization of the camera, the results are gorgeous smooth video recorded handheld.

Vlogging with Lumix GH6 is easy and produces smooth and clear videos.

Audio

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 offers various audio recording options. You get Two stereo microphones on the camera.

And the audio recording quality of the camera is decent. The camera offers you two output formats that are LPCM and AAC audio.

You can record audio in four channels with the Pansonic Lumix GH6. But it is better to use an external mic than an internal mic for that purpose.

The internal mic records decent quality audio, but the camera will struggle a lot in windy situations.

Hence I recommend an external mic if you want more control over your audio.

The overall quality of internal mics is decent for casual users. But if you want to get serious with the audio, you should buy an external mic.

Panasonic Lumix GH6 Features

Weight & Portability

Lumix GH6 is a compact mirrorless camera. You can easily take the camera on trips and holidays.

Because of the strong IBIS on the camera, you will rarely need a gimbal or a tripod with you. The battery runs decently, and you will merely need any accessories until you are professionally shooting.

The camera only weighs about 739 grams. Though it is a reasonably heavy mirrorless camera. But, you will be able to hold the camera for longer thanks to its firm grip.

Overall the Lumix GH6 is a lightweight and compact camera with easy-to-carry properties.

The Lumix GH6 has excellent ergonomics and an utterly comfortable grip. You will love having the camera in your hands because it is easy to hold.

First and foremost, the feel of the camera is quite sturdy and premium.

And second, you will love the ergonomics of this camera.

Panasonic allows you to customize your cameras the way you want. You can reassign almost every button on the camera you see.

There are three custom modes on the left dial of the camera to quickly change between your needed composition settings.

More importantly, the image settings do not affect the video settings. The layout of the buttons and dials is excellent.

Even if you are new to Panasonic layout, you will learn it within a few days. For example, the ISO button on the camera has two dots on it, and the two buttons on either side do not have it.

That way, you can quickly locate which button is an ISO button and its surrounding buttons as well. The screen and EVF on the camera also add to the ease of use.

Overall, the Lumix GH6 is a beginner-friendly camera that allows customizing buttons your way.

Menu System

The menu system on the Lumix GH6 is a bit old-looking aesthetically. The menu items are well arranged, but you need a manual to know all the features.

The Lumix GH6 offers a plethora of features for photography. And they are grouped in well-organized sections.

The touchscreen LCD screen allows you to navigate through the menu system easily. You might find the menu system daunting in the beginning. But over time, it will become easy to navigate.

The learning curve for the Lumix GH6 menu system is a little steep. You will need to spend 3-4 days with the camera to know it inside out.

But, it is not hard to use the camera at all. Once you know which stuff is where the navigation is simply flawless.

And shortcut buttons add another layer of quickness to reach your desired feature.

Overall, the Lumix GH6 has a decent menu system that you may need to spend some time.

Viewfinder

The Lumix GH6 incorporates an Electronic Viewfinder. And it is one of the best and big EVFs in the market.

The EVF on this camera gives you 100% coverage with approx 0.76x magnification. And the resolution of the viewfinder is about 3.6-million Dot.

The EVF on the Lumix GH6 has little to no lag in comparison to OVFs. Generally, an EVF has some advantages over a traditional OVF.

You can easily have more information on the EVF than on OVF. And you can also see your composition clearly in low light.

That helps you to do astrophotography much more efficiently than a traditional OVF. The EVF on the Lumix GH6 offers you a 30-60fps of refresh rate.

And you will find no issues with the EVF regarding blackout during the continuous shooting.

The Lumix GH6 has a considerably big EVF without any blackout issues during continuous shooting.

Screen

The Lumix GH6 comes with a free-angle tilting touchscreen LCD. You can use the bright 3.0-inch LCD to navigate through the menu.

The screen also allows you to easily see waveforms and vector forms on a slightly bigger screen than the EVF.

Panasonic has also provided soft keys on the screen that you customize to suit your needs. The camera auto-brightness settings and the camera will adjust the LCD brightness depending on the exposure of your composition.

And you can also manually do it as the camera provides you with seven levels of brightness adjustment. It is easy to see the LCD in bright light, but you may have to keep the brightness maximum.

The free-angle tilting of the camera allows you to take difficult angle shots easily. Vloggers and streamers can also benefit from the screen.

Overall, the Lumix GH6 screen is bright and has a decent resolution, to quickly see menu items under bright light.

Battery Life

The battery life of the Lumix GH6 is decent. You can only take about 380 images with an SD card or 350-images with a CFexpress card.

That is decent according to the current mirrorless camera battery life. And you can double the battery life with a battery grip.

You can charge the Lumix GH6 battery with a type-C USB. That means you may need to carry only one cable to charge your phone and the camera.

I think 380 shots are not foul if you are a casual user. I still recommend you buy two batteries. So one battery is always in charge while you use the other two.

You could use GH5 batteries in the GH6 camera, but you will be limited.

Pansonic Lumix GH6 has a decent battery life for enthusiasts, and I recommend multiple batteries for professionals.

Connectivity

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 allows you to connect to your phone via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. You will have fast transfer speeds with the Wi-Fi transfers.

You will need the Panasonic Image App to connect to your camera.

And there is no built-in GPS connection available, but there is a Geo-tagging opting in the Panasonic Image App.

There is almost no glitch in the app except for its design. Also, you can remotely control your camera with the app only.

The app is easy to use but still uses an old color palette and design style in a modern-day android app.

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 offers you modern connectivity options except for Geo-tagging.
