Engadget Summary

The GF6 from Panasonic is small, fast and takes great photos. Though aiming for a smaller profile with the GF6, Panasonic still manages to squeeze in a small, but usable grip, which TrustedReviews says is "easy to hold" even though it's by "no means large." But the most impressive inclusion on this small body is a large image sensor, which results in photos that Photography Blog says are of "excellent quality" while Digital Versus says the video quality is also "good" and "movement is reproduced smoothly." And you won't miss a moment, as the GF6 also offers what Pocket-Lint calls "speedy performance." Even with such stellar image quality and speed the GF6 is priced just right, making it a good choice for newcomers to the compact market.
