The new Panasonic Lumix G6 and LF1 cameras are expected to be announced next week. The Micro Four Thirds Lumix G6 would replace the Lumix G5, which features a 16.05MP sensor, 3″ touchscreen LCD and 1080p video capture at 60fps. I would expect a rather incremental upgrade for the G6 since the flagship Panasonic Lumix GH3 also sports a 16.05MP sensor and 1080/60p video.
Previously rumored specs suggest the same – with a 16MP sensor, new Venus Engine, mic input and video quality on par with the last-gen (but still excellent) GH2 – for the Lumix G6.
The Panasonic LF1 is rumored to be a high-end compact camera with a fixed zoom lens and a built-in electronic viewfinder. The LF1 is believed to feature a 7x optical zoom and the same 1/1.7″ sensor that is currently found in the Lumix LX7.
