The camera has been developed to provide maximum mobility and versatility, making the Panasonic DMC-G7 the perfect camera to document special moments with family and friends, right through to adventures abroad. Panasonic’s Lumix G cameras incorporate the latest technology in a considerably more compact design, compared to larger D-SLR cameras.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 features
The Panasonic Lumix G7 features a 16-megapixel high-quality image sensor that has been developed to achieve high resolution pictures and video, minimizing distortion and graininess, even in low light conditions, for example a dimly lit restaurant or bar. The 16-megapixel sensor is accompanied by a new and improved Venus Engine that accurately analyses, evaluates and reproduces every color in every frame, resulting in crisp, clear and bright photos and videos that are true to the original. Panasonic’s Lumix G camera range is synonymous with fast and accurate Auto Focus (AF) functionality, meaning you can concentrate on framing your shot safe in the knowledge that your LUMIX camera will do the rest.
OLED Live View Finder & 3-inch touch screen display
With a high performance OLED Live View Finder (LVF) and 3-inch 1040K-dot Free-Angle touch screen display, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 is ready to accommodate any shooting style. You can either use the rear screen or the Live View Finder to compose your shots, with both providing 100% field of view to ensure you’re not missing an even better shot at the edge of the frame. The camera’s range of customizable dials and a touch screen display also make choosing your settings easier than ever. The Panasonic G7 takes even less time to set focus than its predecessors, analyzing the scene and adjusting settings in the blink of an eye. The result is crystal clear photos and video every time, even when you’re dealing with the most unpredictable, fast-moving subjects.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 digital camera integrates Wi-Fi connectivity for exciting new shooting options, as well as fast and simple image sharing. With a press of a button you can connect the Lumix camera to a smartphone or tablet, allowing you to upload images and video to social media within seconds, or e-mail them directly to friends and family. You can also use your mobile devices as a remote control for the Lumix DMC-G7, changing settings such as focus, aperture, shutter speed and ISO, before triggering the shutter release; and all without laying a finger on the camera itself.
