Panasonic is holding a big event to announce their upcoming camera lineup for this year. However, one of those (if we were to assume that there are plenty) got out too soon namely the Lumix DMC-GF6 micro four-thirds interchangeable lens camera.

Along with the press shots above courtesy of Digicam.info, 43rumors.com also thrown in a very detailed info of what we can expect from this rumored camera from the specs standpoint.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 specs:
16MP Live MOS sensor
Sensor Type: 4/3 (17.3 x 13mm)
Venus Engine image processor
ISO 160 – 12800
Expandable to ISO 25600
60 sec. – 1/4000 sec. shutter speed
1.04M-dot touchscreen LCD
Tilting up to 180°
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
NFC
Optional External Flash via Hot shoe
4.2fps continuous drive
FHD video recording @30fps
SD / SDHC / SDXC
Dimension: 111.2 x 64.8 x 38.4 mm

If the alleged specs is to be believed, then the GF6 is the world’s first NFC-enabled MILC. Not sure though how that will all pan out, but it’s a good talk point in terms of marketing. In addition to this, the snapper will be equipped with a handful of other nifty photography features such as a new two-dimensional and multi-process noise reduction system, faster start-up time and Low light autofocus system.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 is said to start making its way to stores in April 24 with a $680 price tag. It’ll come with the compact 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Vario lens with a built-in Optical Image Stabilization.
