The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens combines the Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine to achieve a new level of clear, smooth image quality. Featuring a stylish, high-class body with metallic appeal, the DMC-GX7 expands the joy of photography with a tiltable LVF, image stabilizer and Wi-Fi function.
The DMC-GX7 boasts better image resolution thanks to the High Sensitivity Live MOS Sensor and new Venus Engine. It dramatically suppresses low-frequency noise without losing sharpness. It also allows you to finely control noise level when you apply Multi-process Noise Reduction. This enables you to capture highly detailed images with natural looking noise reduction. Even when shooting at high sensitivity you can produce beautiful skin tones.
The DMC-GX7 is equipped with an Optical Image Stabilizer in the camera unit. This allows you to exchange between a wide variety of lenses, including vintage lenses, and single focal length lenses that are not equipped with Optical Image Stabilization. If your lens is equipped, the camera will auto switch to the in lens OIS. In addition, enjoy hand-shake correction power equivalent to MEGA O.I.S.
Included with the camera is the black Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II APSH. MEGA O.I.S. lens, which is a standard zoom lens providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 28-84mm. The lens integrates two aspherical elements into its construction to minimize chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range and also reduce the overall size of the lens. It has an internal focusing system and uses a stepping motor to provide smooth and quiet performance that is well-suited to video applications.
The large, bright LVF features approximately 100% field of view. In addition to its 2760K-dot high-resolution, the Live View Finder tilts vertically from 0 to 90 degrees, making it perfect for low-angle shots. The DMC-GX7 adopts a newly designed monitor with "In Cell Touch LCD"that is tiltable to approx. 80°. The new monitor offers higher visibility in outdoor situations, wider field of view, and lower power consumption. The DMC-GX7's Creative Video mode lets you adjust the shutter speed and aperture any way you like when shooting videos. Record high-resolution full HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p (NTSC) videos in the AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4/H.264) format. Resolution has been dramatically improved by the higher sensitivity of the Live MOS Sensor.
Low Light AF achieves higher performance in conditions such as starlight to focus on the subject more precisely. For more practical control over focusing, the DMC-GX7 incorporates a Focus Peaking function that shows the peak of focus in MF and AF+MF mode. Adjust highlights and shadows with Gamma Curves for a high level of perfection. Since adjustments are made while shooting, there is no need for special software. Select preset settings or adjust manually.
16MP Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine:A 16 megapixel Micro Four Thirds Digital Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor work together to produce high resolution imagery that exhibits a great deal of clarity, detail, and overall impressive image quality. The processing power affords heightened sensitivity to ISO 25600 with minimal noise for enhanced use in low-light conditions. The Venus Engine also provides a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including the ability to record up 5 fps in full resolution, 40 fps using an electronic shutter, and continuous shooting at 4.3 fps with full-time AF.
Full HD Video Recording:The 16MP Micro Four Thirds sensor also supports full HD 1080p video recording in both 60 and 24 fps at a maximum bit rate of 24 Mbps. Both the high quality AVCHD and the Internet-friendly MP4 formats can be used depending on the intended output and editing workflow used and stereo sound is recorded with videos using a built-in microphone. Full-time continuous AF and tracking AF modes can be used during recording and exposure settings can be manually adjusted using either shutter speed or aperture controls. Touch AF and Touch AE controls also prove to be effective means for modifying the focus and exposure settings while recording video and focus peaking is ideal when working with manual focus.
Tilting EVF and Monitor Design:To better aid in live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation, both a tilting electronic viewfinder and rear LCD monitor are integrated into the design of the GX7. The EVF, or LVF (Live View Finder), features a 2,764k-dot resolution and approx. 100% color reproduction using the field sequential system for clear visibility in all conditions. It has a 90° upward tilting mechanism that permits easier viewing from low working angles. Additionally, Eye Sensor AF can be used to automatically begin auto focusing as soon as the viewfinder detects use, which greatly benefits working in a more spontaneous manner. A large 3.0 In. 1,040k-dot touchscreen LCD is also available for viewing and features a tilting design that permits the monitor to be tilted 45° upward or 80° downward to benefit working from both high and low angles. The front panel of the monitor is attached directly to the In Cell Touch LCD without a gap between in order to reduce surface reflections and improve visibility of the screen in bright conditions. The touch functionality of the monitor also enhances efficiency by allowing for a more natural method of adjusting camera settings and navigating throughout the menu structure. Combining use of both the viewfinder and the touchscreen is Touch Pad, which allows you to use the EVF for monitoring along with the touch control functions of the rear LCD.
In-Camera Image Stabilization:MEGA O.I.S. in-camera image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake when working with lenses that do not incorporate image stabilization. This added benefit enables sharp low-light shooting with any lens and is especially useful for handheld shooting with longer, telephoto lenses.
Focusing Performance:An array of focusing technologies are available to help ensure sharp focus when working in all shooting modes with any type of subject matter. Light Speed AF, a contrast-detection AF system, is used to intelligently and accurately determine critical focus in quick and efficient manner. The speed of this system is ideal for photographing and tracking fast-moving subjects in a variety of lighting conditions. Low Light AF is also available to help determine critical focus in dimly-lit (-4 EV) conditions without the need of an AF assist lamp. If working with manual focus, focus peaking is available to provide a more objective means for determining exacting focus based on highlighting edges of contrast within the scene. Pin-Point AF allows for live view images to be magnified from 3-10x during shooting for homing in on tight details and One-Shot AF allows focus to be acquired quickly and automatically with manual focusing abilities available for greater focus refinement and creative control. Full-area focus makes use of the intuitive touchscreen design and allows you to tap anywhere within the frame to set focus and AFF mode acquires autofocus as normal and then can reset focus if the determined target moves.
Built-In Wireless Connectivity:Wireless connectivity is integrated into the GX7 to enabled remote transferring and control of the camera from mobile devices when using the Panasonic Image App. Zoom and focus can be controlled through the app as well as remote releasing of the shutter. Images can be sent directly to mobile devices for instant sharing online and NFC (Near Field Communication) technology allows for a simplified method of connecting the camera to the mobile device.
