Panasonic DMC-G7 overview

  • 1Description

Offering true recording versatility, the black Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 is a true hybrid mirrorless camera that blends 4K UHD video with advanced still capture and burst shooting capabilities. Revolving around a 16 MP Live MOS Micro Four Thirds sensor and Venus Engine 9 image processor, the G7 features notable low-light sensitivity to ISO 25600, continuous shooting to 8 fps with single-shot AF, as well as a trio of 30 fps shooting rates based on the 4K UHD video recording. Complementing the fast burst shooting modes is an equally adept DFD autofocus system, which works to quicken focusing speeds and emphasize accurate subject tracking for consistently sharp imagery in fast-paced and trying working conditions. Rounding out the feature-set of the G7 is a contemporary body design accentuated by physical exposure control dials, six customizable function buttons, both a high-resolution EVF and 3.0" tilting touchscreen LCD, and built-in Wi-Fi for wireless sharing and remote camera control. Bridging the gap between stills and video, the Lumix DMC-G7 pairs these two high-resolution mediums with refined focusing and shooting controls for the utmost in shooting versatility.

Included with the camera body is the well-rounded Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. lens, which provides a 28-84mm equivalent focal length range to cover wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives. An Optical Image Stabilizer compensates for camera shake for sharper handheld shooting while a pair of aspherical elements help to minimize the overall lens size and maintain a high degree of sharpness and clarity throughout the zoom range.

16 MP Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine 9
A 16 MP Live MOS Micro Four Thirds sensor pairs with an updated Venus Engine 9 to deliver fast overall performance with matched image quality to suit working in a wide variety of lighting conditions with consistent results. Sensitivity ranges from ISO 200 to 25600, with the ability to extend down to ISO 100 for working in bright conditions or with longer shutter speeds. Versatile burst shooting modes also allow you to pair high continuous shooting rates with AF; including shooting up to 8 fps with AF-S, 6 fps with AF-C in one area, and 6 fps during live view. For even faster performance, up to 40 fps shooting is possible with the electronic shutter function or 30 fps at 8 MP using the 4K Photo Modes.

The sensor and processor combination also helps to ensure notable image quality through the use of accurate white balance settings, Live TTL direct exposure metering, and intelligent NR (Noise Reduction) control for clean, natural imagery. Additionally, the Venus Engine 9 aids in reducing image blur caused by diffraction using electronic adjustment to automatically sharpen edges for clearer results when photographing with smaller aperture sizes.
4K UHD Video Recording
In addition to the versatile still shooting modes, the G7 also supports recording 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) video with either 30p or 24p frames rates at 100Mbps in the MP4 format. Full HD 1080p/60 is also supported, in both MP4 and AVCHD formats, as well as HD and SD resolutions.

A built-in stereo microphone can be used during recordings, and features an integrated wind-cut filter, or an optional external microphone can be utilized via the 3.5mm jack for even clearer sound.
4K Photo Modes
Utilizing the 4K video recording capabilities, a trio of still shooting modes are available for recording continuous 8 MP stills at a 30 fps shooting rate:
  • 4K Burst: Just as with video recording, this mode will allow you to continuously record 8 MP images at 30 fps for up to 29 min. 59 sec., making it ideal for instances where you need a fast frame rate in order to capture the best moment.
  • 4K Pre-Burst: This mode is ideal for times when you're unsure of the critical moment to press the shutter button and will record 8 MP images at 30 fps one second prior to and one second after pressing the shutter button in order to give you 60 frames to choose from.
  • 4K Burst (S/S): This mode most closely follows the 4K video recording process, and allows you to playback your video, pause at the chosen moment, and use the shutter button to mark a chosen frame from the video and save it as a single 8 MP frame.

When using any of the 4K Photo modes, you are afforded complete exposure control using the PSAM dial in order to base metering results and exposure configurations on your own shooting needs.
Depth-From-Defocus AF Technology
For accelerated autofocus performance, which performs in low-light conditions down to -4 EV, DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) technology is employed to quickly calculate the distance to subjects and adjust the focusing position in as little as 0.07 seconds. This contrast-detection type focus method benefits both still and video recording modes, as well as subject tracking applications where subject color, size, and motion vectors are used to intelligently lock-onto the moving subjects and ensure precise focus.

Benefitting manual focus operation, focus peaking is available that highlights bright edges of contrast with a colored outline for quickly recognizing your focus point, as well as depth of field distances.
Body Design and Wi-Fi
Featuring a sleek design that is characteristic to Micro Four Thirds cameras, the G7 pairs retro aspects with modern functionality for intuitive use and classic appeal. Front and rear dials avail direct aperture and shutter speed control, as well as quick changing of ISO and white balance settings. Six function buttons can be assigned to control a range of custom features and the main drive wheel offers fast switching between shooting modes, including the 4K Photo modes.

For greater versatility when shooting, both a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and rear LCD monitor are available. The 2.36m-dot OLED Live View Finder features a 10,000:1 contrast ratio for bright, accurate viewing of scenes, even in difficult lighting. The 3.0" 1.04m-dot LCD features a static touchscreen design for intuitive navigation and control, as well as a vari-angle design for easier working from high and low angles.

Rounding out the handling capabilities, the G7 also features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for wirelessly sharing images and remotely controlling the camera from a linked mobile device using the Panasonic Image App. Connection is simplified using a QR code system to pair the smartphone or tablet with the camera.
Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. Lens
A versatile standard zoom, the Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. is a 28-84mm equivalent wide-to-short tele featuring an Optical Image Stabilizer to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Two aspherical elements are incorporated within the lens design to reduce the overall size and weight as well as benefit image sharpness and clarity. Complementing the optical design is an internal focusing system that pairs with the camera's contrast-detection AF for quick, accurate focusing performance.
Other Camera Features
  • An electronic shutter function affords both a high top shutter speed of 1/16,000 sec. as well as silent operation for quick, inconspicuous shooting.
  • UHS-II SDHC/SDXC memory cards are supported in order to benefit the high-resolution, data-intensive 4K movie and raw burst shooting workflows.

    Panasonic DMC-G7 reviews

    Lumix DMC-G7 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 14-42mm Lens (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 197.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing camera, wish it came with better lens. I use this camera for family pictures and video. I'm amazed at the picture quality and love the features offered by this camera. Although I'm a beginner when it comes to using this kind of camera, the features are very easy to use, and the picture settings are very easy to locate and adjust on the fly. We're taking amazing pictures in situations where we'd never dreamed (low light, toddlers running around). The only damper we've had in this experience is with the lens. Trying to get pictures of our kids means we can't be any more than 10-15 away from them. Bottom Line: Love everything about the camera, and I'm now in the market for a stronger lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from G7 is an incredible camera I am an experienced MFT shooter with experience on just about every Lumix camera since the GH2. The new G7 is a truly remarkable camera. It is ergonomic; just fitting naturally in your hand. The controls are smooth and precise. It is a good size yet light weight - the essence of why we all switched to MFT. It is very quick and responsive, with all the software features such as focus peaking, highlighting, etc. The new 4K still modes are really great for shooting sports and wildlife. It performs excellently in low light, just like my GX7 and GM5 but has the advantage over both of them by having the fully articulated LCD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little 4K camera Sold my a6000 and picked up a G7 (for a great price) and I couldn't be happier. I mostly use vintage glass, but man am I consistently surprised by this kit lens. It's sharp, compact, and the stabilization works very well. The biggest thing I was afraid of with the switch to MFT was loss of quality for photos. So far, though, I'm extremely pleased with the image quality for stills and I'm mostly using the kit lens. I'm looking forward to picking up a focal reducer to use some of my Minolta and Canon FD lenses to see what they can do. As for video, the G7 is probably the best video-centric DSLR on the market, dollar-for-dollar.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small powerful package This camera is fantastic. I have only had it 10 days but this might be the best camera I've ever used in over 20 years of production experience. It's got everything you really need for video production, peaking, zebras, fast auto focus, big sensor, plenty of lens options. It's small, light and easy use. If the saying the best camera is the one you have with you is true, this is the best camera because it can so easily travel with you. The video options present are plenty for most shooters, you don't get super high frame rate but hey, it's an inexpensive camera. It also takes solid photos, and the time-lapse feature is super simple to use and produces great results. Bottom line, if you can't afford the GH4, get a G7.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't recommend this enough for beginner video and B-cam I haven't had a ton of time to play around with my new G7, as my current project is tied to a different camera, but so far it's already proven more valuable than the price tag. The video is unbelievable and the photos have been coming out crisp with accurate colors. The kit lens is seriously one of the best of any camera you'll get your mitts on, but when paired with older glass (I like ROKKORs a lot), the G7 really shines. Although very small, the G7 still feels good in my hands, and even though it's a little plasticky, I don't get the sense it wouldn't hold up against a drop or two. I get the feeling I'll be holding on to this camera for a very long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GH4 for less This camera is touted as the baby brother to the GH4 and it's right in the ballpark. LCD and EVF is bright and crisp. And like it's bigger sibling, it maintains the CineLike D and CineLike V modes when recording video. Downside? Continuous video can only go up to 30 minutes before it stops and you have to press record again. Also, the camera does get a little warm. I've had a few instances where it wouldn't read the memory card because it was too hot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around good camera! I've had this camera for just over a week and I adore it. It's small, compact, powerful, and has a great image. The photos a crisp and rich. The video is superb for the price. The menus are easy to navigate. The features are powerful. The stock lens is light and clear. The only problem I've had is manual focus can be difficult but the auto focus is fast and accurate. I would suggest this to anyone new to photography or videography or someone who's looking to upgrade from a cheaper platform. Overall, it's a great camera across the board. I am extremely happy with my purchase!
    Date published: 2015-07-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds expectations! As someone trying to convert to lighter gear as I get older, I've found the m4/3rds format to be a good compromise. However, until the G7, none of my M43 gear gave a decent keeper rate for continuous AF of sports. Admittedly, I don't have a G4, but I do have an Oly E-P5 and E-M5 Mark ii. Great cameras, but they don't come close to the continuous AF keeper rate of the G7, and that is with the Pany 14-140 on the Pany compared to even my Oly 12-40 f/2.8. Needless to say that I'm thrilled with the G7. The ergonomics are great as well. The grip is better than the rangefinder body styled M43 cameras, and the programmable function buttons make it easy to set this camera up however you want it. This is one of the best buys in M43 cameras right now.
