After a superb start at the dawn of 2015 with six new DMC models, the most significant of which is the Panasonic DMC-GF7, Panasonic carries on and introduces an exceptional Panasonic DMC-G7, which will join the 4K artillery offered by Panasonic.
As it has already been said, the trump card of the new MILC Panasonic DMC-G7 is 4K resolution. The LUMIX G7 not only records perfectly smooth 4K movies (3840 x 2160 at 30 fps), but thanks to its option 4K Photo Mode, it is also possible to make a pause at a particular point while filming in 4K and simply extract a moment that you find precious, thus converting it into a 4K image (with 8MP equivalent resolution). In this way, all special moment will be at hand, in any situation.
Moreover, the 4K Photo Mode brings three new, absolutely amazing functions, which will make 4K photography even easier - 4K Burst Shooting, 4K Burst Start/Stop (S/S), and 4K Pre-burst. The 4K Burst Shooting provides 30 fps continuous shooting as long as your finger is on the shutter button. The 4K Burst Start/Stop delivers the same 30 fps continuous shooting, yet the shooting starts by pressing the shutter button once, and continues until you press it once again; this option is more convenient for the shooting opportunities requiring longer waiting time. As for the 4K Pre-burst, it automatically records a total of 60 images right before/after the shutter has been released.
In order for you to capture 4K images more easily, the smaller control dial of the new G7 offers a new drive mode dial for activating the 4K Photo Mode, which is the first such case with LUMIX G cameras. This drive mode dial on the control dial provides a very quick and easy access to the 4K Photo Mode, which is another indicator that everything revolves around 4K with the LUMIX G7.
The Panasonic GF7 also boasts a 16MP Four Thirds CMOS sensor, a Venus Engine image processor, an improved 49-point autofocus, 8 fps continuous shooting (6 fps with continuous AF), as well as a new Random Filter, which reduces chromatic noise even more naturally. The LUMIX G7 can be combined with over 24 Micro Four Thirds lenses, which offers a wide range of possibilities. Framing images is accomplished by means of a fully articulated 3" 1,040,000-dot LCD screen, or through an electronic OLED 2,360,000-dot viewfinder, with 1.4x magnification and 100% coverage. Above all, the G7 offers built-in Wi-Fi with NFC, too, for quick and easy connection to compatible smart devices.
The Panasonic DMC-GF7 will hit the stores in June, and it will be paired with a 14-42mm lens ($799.99), as well as a 14-140mm lens ($1099.99).
