Does this camera have GPS for Geo-tagging? Feb 2, 2014
No this camera does not have GPS for Geo-tagging BUT it will acquire the latitude and longitude coordinates of your smartphone and write that location to your picture. You will need to install the Panasonic Image App on your smartphone. You will also have to change the settings: Menu->Playback->Location Logging->Add location data.
The camera is not dust/drip/water proof. Condensation can occur in situations of dramatic temperature or humidity changes.
If you are referring to long exposure for star trails, this camera does not have a bulb setting, so it is limited to the standard shutter settings of up to 60 seconds, not a very long trail. I did see where one guy combined shots to create the trails, but with the multiple shots, the trails were dashes. If you are referring to time lapse video, this camera does have an automated feature that allows one to take photos at user specified intervals and turn them into a video at user specified frame rates. I have had fun with this feature, but I haven't done it at night.
is it possible to control the shutter through some external device or smartphone to make timelapse movies? May 1, 2014
This camera is compatible with the Panasonic Image App. More details about the apps capabilities can be found in the below link. http://panasonic.net/avc/lumix/wireless_functions/
Absolutely not. Cloud service is cloud service is cloud service. If you are hoping to use cloud service as a place of online storage for safe keeping and content sharing, then any cloud service like dropbox, box, google drive and etc will work. You only need to use Panasonic software when you want to pair your GF6 with smartphone or tablet to remote control it and download image from camera.
Does this have a silent shutter option? I've had the GF1, GX1, and GF5 and they're all pretty loud, so it's hard to get candid photos. Jan 11, 2015
My wife whose camera it is says it is quiet
Some cameras are described as "with lens" and some are "with lens kit". Does "lens kit" include lens itself, or do I have to buy lens separately? Nov 26, 2013
A lens kit is included. I also bought a telephoto lens so I have 2.
