Good points:
Its small and light, viewfinder on left takes a bit of getting used to..lots of features..maybe to many? Gets a wee bit confusing sometimes. Not had a chance to really fire it in anger but quite happy with quality so far.

Gavin, Leicester Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Wifi / Panasonic App upload facility. Managed to take a photo and post it on Twitter ... Eventually.

Picture quality is superb.

Very early still and I need to read the manual in more detail but so far I'm very pleased.
Bad points:
Initial Wif set up is a bit fiddly. The manual isn't that clear but I managed to sort it out in the end.

Derek, Spilsby Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The focusing is so quick on this camera, you don't even have to think about it. The touch to focus using the screen is good to use; - touch the screen, adjust the size of the focus area on the thumbwheel, and you're set.


Love the touch screen, and the quick menu option, so easy to set the camera up for a shot.

The kit lens is a little gem, a good manual zoom range, (28 - 84mm in 35mm equiv) coupled with a really clear image. Thats "landscape to portrait" range.

The build quality, handling, and design of the camera is excellent.
Bad points:
These are just my personal dislikes, nothing wrong with the camera.

Personally I don't like the EVF, not had one for about 8 years, so not used to it.

I personally don't like to have batteries charged outside of the camera, as you have to remember to take the charger with you on holidays.

Manufacturer's Description

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 is a high-quality mirrorless Compact System Camera with a Magnesium Alloy full diecast frame body. Features include a newly developed 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine for exceptional images, Tilt LVF plus Tiltable Touch Monitor, high quality video recording, 1/8000 shutter speed, in-body Image Stabilizer and Wi-Fi connectivity.

High quality images with 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine
The GX7 produces high-quality image recording with real-to-life details through excellent resolution, image rendering and colour reproduction. Taking full advantage of newly developed 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine, images are rendered with highly sharp resolution even shot in low-lit situations. In addition, the limit resolution is enhanced thanks to the precise detail reproduction and advanced Intelligent D-range Control ensures beautiful gradation with wider dynamic range than ever.

Contrast AF System
The Contrast AF System of DMC-GX7 excels in both speed and accuracy by exchanging digital signal between the camera and the lens at max. 240 fps. A variety of extensive AF functions enhances usability to comply with wide-ranging shooting situations. The Low Light AF makes it possible to set focus on the subject more precisely in -4EV situations. The Pin-point AF allows you to set magnification from 3x to 10x enlargement by 0.1x step. The One-shot AF enables using AF in MF mode to set rough focus on the subject.

90-degree tiltable LVF
The DMC-GX7 integrates a 90-degree tiltable LVF with 2760K equive. high resolution and approx. 100% colour reproduction. The LVF allows photographers to look down the camera, which lets them shoot enables bust or low angle shot casually. The new large, 1040K-dot high resolution static-type touch monitor with approx. 100% of field of view tilts up and down. The front panel is directly attached to the new In Cell Touch LCD without containing air layer in between. The result is that the reflection of external light is dramatically suppressed.

Fast shooting
The DMC-GX7 features a max. 1/8000 fast shutter speed and Optical Image Stabilizer is built in the camera body. The GX7 is also compatible with Focus Peaking for more precise control of focusing.

High quality video
The GX7 records full HD 1920 × 1080, 50p (50Hz) smooth, high quality video in AVCHD Progressive and MP4 with stereo sound. The full-time AF and tracking AF is available in video recording. The cinema-like 24p video with the bit rate of max. 24Mbps or P/A/S/M mode produces superb image quality. It’s improved thanks to the new Digital Live MOS Sensor, too. With the Wi-Fi connectivity, remote shooting is available by using the smartphone/tablet.
