Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7

 

Panasonic's latest micro shooter is a powerful camera with beginner-friendly features, including a few selfie modes.

Small, light design with included lens makes the GF7 a suitable upgrade from point-and-shoot cameras. Intelligent Auto and solid scene modes make it simple to use for beginners. Bright, crisp display makes composing easy, even in direct sunlight.

Small light design can be awkward with larger lenses (or if you have large hands). Tiny size means a small battery–buy an extra if you plan to shoot all day. Kit lens isn't great. Encourages selfies.

Panasonic GF7 Review

 

The little Panasonic GF7 packs a lot of performance into a small, lightweight and easy to use package. It may be billed as an entry-level camera and comes in at an affordable, entry-level price, but the GF7 offers a lot of camera for the money.

Very good image quality for its size; Fast AF for its class; 10fps burst mode with electronic shutter; Lightweight, yet well-built, compact design; Great value for the money.

Continuous AF is not reliable; Shallow buffer with RAW; Below average battery life; No EVF; Maximum mechanical shutter speed of only 1/500s.

Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 POWER OIS LUMIX G X VARIO HD Review

 

There's a lot to like in the Panasonic 35-100mm ƒ/2.8: it's super sharp and offers professional results at slightly less than you might pay for a comparable full-frame lens.
