Panasonic Lumix GX7 Review


Panasonic has been quite aggressive with the mirrorless camera segment. And why wouldn't it be? With every major camera player entering the mirrorless camera segment, it can be safely said that the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera market is...

Panasonic Lumix GX7 has been a wonderful camera and it has everything going for it – beautiful build, great handling, a high-res EVF which can tilt, an overdose of features, wireless connectivity, great image quality and so on. The silent mode,...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7


Panasonic's Lumix DMC-GX7 is arguably the company's most enthusiast-focused mirrorless camera yet to hit the market. Back in 2011, Panasonic released the DMC-GX1 in a move to appease those who grew more and more disappointed as the promising GF-series...

Photos have pleasing color and sharpness, with little detail smudging ; In-body image stabilization brings anti-shake to any lens ; Well constructed, easy-to-handle body ; Quick autofocus and shot-to-shot speeds ; Highly customizable ; Well-implemented...

In-body stabilization not available for image composition ; Camera tends to use small apertures (rather than faster shutter speeds) in Program mode ; No sensor-shift IS in movie mode ; Strong 'rainbow' tearing effect in EVF ; EVF is hard to see...

The Panasonic GX7 is a full-featured mirrorless camera that offers very good photo and video quality, a highly customizable interface, plenty of useful features, and robust performance. It's marred by a so-so viewfinder, lack of in-camera Raw...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Preview


Panasonic continues to add powerful models to their popular line of Lumix G-series Micro Four Thirds cameras, which offer similar quality and performance to a dSLR, but in a much smaller package. For the summer of 2013, Panasonic unveiled the Lumix...

The original GX1 was developed in response to enthusiasts who demanded lots of control and features, but in a smaller form factor. Panasonic's GF series fitted the bill on size, but subsequent generations lost key features like a hotshoe and optional...

Relatively compact body with lots of customisable controls ; Built-in and tiltable high resolution electronic viewfinder ; Tilting touch-screen monitor ; Built-in image stabilisation works with any lens ; Fast AF that also works well in very low light...

Viewfinder shape optimised for HD video, not stills ; Stabilisation only gave 1 stop compensation in my tests ; Not weather-sealed ; Stabilisation not available when filming video ; No microphone input or microphone accessory ; Viewfinder image prone...

I said it before and I'll say it again: the Panasonic Lumix GX7 is a very satisfying and capable system camera that will delight most enthusiasts. It's responsive and packed with features that allow it to perform confidently in a variety of situations,...

A Lumix that out-PENs the PEN.

Olympus had better watch its back.

Panasonic GX7 review


The Panasonic Lumix GX7 is a new premium G-series camera with a price tag just short of a grand. Is this truly a DSLR in compact clothing?

Adjustable viewfinder ; Touchscreen and buttons ; Great build quality

Buttons a re bit too small ; Smaller sensor than rivals ; Expensive compared with rivals

The 16 megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 arguably packs in all that anyone would want from a premium level system camera - apart from an APS-C sized sensor.

Panasonic LUMIX GX7 camera


Panasonic's newest LUMIX is the best compact system camera yet

Complete feature-set ; Good image and video quality ; Solid build quality

Viewfinder and touchscreen a perilous combo ; Over-exposes photos in bright daylight ; Wi-Fi is an afterthought

Panasonic’s LUMIX GX7 is the most feature-packed compact camera we’ve seen. All of these features are useful to varying degrees, but the overall package is a versatile one. The GX7 is a great compromise between the small size of a compact camera and...

Panasonic Lumix GX7 review


The Panasonic Lumix GX7 immediately took up the "most wanted" position in our desirable compact system cameras list when it was announced earlier this year. How's that for hype? But it's hype with reason: the GX7 comes complete with a brand new Micro...

Built-in electronic viewfinder, decent build quality, super-fast autofocus speed, decent image qualty, fully user-customisable, responsive touchscreen controls, manual focus override with focus peaking works well, 1/8000th sec shutter speed, price fair...

Colour noise in high-ISO shots, some viewfinder activation lag, continuous autofocus still not quite there, accidental focus point adjustment via touchscreen, so-so battery life, pinpoint AF requires double tap, overexposure can be an issue

The Lumix GX7 is the package deal. It's bursting with features, it's a pleasure to use and it produces some excellent shots. Pro-spec features such as a 1/8000th sec maximum shutter speed and that tilt-angle viewfinder further bolster the package deal...
