The Panasonic Lumix GH6 Is Delayed
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, December 16, 2021 @ 07:30 AM (EST)


If you’ve been patiently waiting for the arrival of the Panasonic GH6, which we were told, in May, to expect “by end of year,” we’re afraid it’s bad news: The very highly anticipated successor to the GH5 is “expected to be delayed.” Here’s Panasonic’s notice, Google-translated from the Japanese:

Notice about LUMIX GH6

Thank you for your continued patronage of Panasonic products.

Regarding the mirrorless single-lens camera “LUMIX GH6”, which was developed and announced on May 26, 2021, we were aiming for commercialization within 2021, but it is expected to be delayed.

Currently, we are aiming for commercialization in early 2022.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to customers who are waiting for this product. Deeply apologize.

Regrettably, “Currently, we are aiming for commercialization in early 2022” doesn’t instill a huge amount of confidence, and if the issue is related to the chip shortages that are plaguing a growing number of cameras of various brands, it’s anybody’s guess just how “early” next year we will see the GH6 appear. At this point, the best advice might well be to just relax and enjoy the holidays—and pray hard.
