Canon 600D or Pana­sonic Lumix G6?

Smart Photography - - Ask Uncle Ronnie -

I do pho­tog­ra­phy as a hobby. Till now, I was us­ing cell phone cam­eras and Sony Cybershot com­pact cam­era. Now, I want to take a leap for­ward with my skills. So, I have de­cided to go with the Canon 600D. But th­ese days I have come across the mir­ror­less cam­era con­cept. I have watched many videos on YouTube so as to get a clear pic­ture. I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to the Pana­sonic Lumix G6 now.

Can you please tell me which will be a bet­ter choice – the Canon 600D or the Lumix G6 ? Or, is there any other cam­era that

you can sug­gest me ? My bud­get is around Rs, 40,000 - Rs. 45,000. Adarsh Gau­tam Both th­ese cam­eras are ca­pa­ble of ex­cel­lent re­sults. You can­not go wrong with ei­ther. The Pana­sonic Lumix G6 is based on the Mi­cro Four Thirds Sys­tem and is lighter and eas­ier to carry. Lenses too are lighter and less ex­pen­sive (com­pared with those for the Canon 600D). The 600D of­fers a larger imag­ing sen­sor (22.3 x 14.9mm, as com­pared to 17.3 x 13mm for the G6) which will pro­duce lesser dig­i­tal noise, es­pe­cially at higher ISO sen­si­tiv­i­ties. This does not mean that the G6 is noisy, but yes, at higher ISOs, the 600D will pro­duce lesser noise. Per­son­ally, I be­lieve that the user in­ter­face on the 600D is eas­ier. The G6 can shoot at 7 frames per sec­ond at full res­o­lu­tion; the 600D does 3.7 fps! If your style of shoot­ing re­quires higher frame rates, con­sider the G6. If you like to shoot in low light sit­u­a­tions, con­sider the 600D. If you will shoot mainly in good light, and if your pic­tures are not likely to be too large (16 x 20 inches or larger), then it may not mat­ter which sys­tem you choose. The best way is to first go through the fea­tures th­ese cam­eras of­fer, find out more (from the user man­ual or the In­ter­net) about the fea­tures that you are not con­ver­sant with, de­cide if those fea­tures are likely to im­prove your pho­tog­ra­phy, and then make an in­formed de­ci­sion.

Canon EOS 600D Did you know... Ron­nie has over 35 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in pho­tog­ra­phy? In fact, he has taught sev­eral thou­sand pho­toen­thu­si­asts in var­i­ous in­sti­tu­tions and through work­shops, as well as judged many national and in­ter­na­tional photo con­tests, in­clud­ing the pres­ti­gious In­ter­na­tional Photo Con­test held at Colombo, Sri Lanka. So, if you have any photo-queries, whether con­ven­tional or dig­i­tal, don’t hes­i­tate. Just go ahead and Ask Un­cle Ron­nie at sp@nextgen­pub­lish­, ‘cause he knows it all!
