Panasonic G6 for selfies?

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has a flexibly attached rear LCD. Indeed, this screen can be turned to be front-facing. It can, hence, be used to frame the shot when taking a selfie. Moreover, this functionality will also be highly appreciated by v-loggers, who can monitor the coverage of their footage while talking into the camera.

One convenient feature of the G6 is the presence of an on-board flash. While this built-in flash is not very powerful, it can at times be useful as a fill-in light to brighten deep shadow areas.
