Panasonic Lumix GX7 Review

Tech2
1 April 2014
  • Summary: 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, although limits some options, is a great tool for street photography enthusiasts. In retrospect, we did not really feel stunted by its limitations mode while shooting on streets.

Panasonic Lumix GX7 Review

thinkdigit.com
13 November 2013
  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix GX7 is a mirrorless camera with a 16 megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor, which may not sound very impressive, but what it does have is a number of really great tweaks and features. The camera is designed with serious enthusiasts in mind, yet, is simple enough for even an amateur to pick up and shoot with. It has great image quality, good video, but there are areas where it tends to falter.
  • Pros: Lots of customizable buttons, Conveniently placed dials, Very relaible touch AF
  • Cons: Low Light AF is noticeably slower, High ISO performance was a slight let-down

DP Review
22 October 2013
  • Summary: 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 conversion, and a disappointing in-body IS system.
  • Pros: 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 touchscreen, Large and sharp tilting electronic viewfinder, Truly 'silent' shooting mode, Wi-Fi with NFC capability
  • Cons: 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 outdoors, adds bulk to camera, No in-camera Raw conversion, Lacks headphone and external mic ports for video shooters

Panasonic Lumix GX7

Camera Labs
1 September 2013
  • Summary: So Panasonic took all of this on board for the GX7 and squeezed in a viewfinder along with Wifi, NFC, focus peaking, 1/8000 shutter, low-light AF, manual movie exposures, lots of controls with a high degree of customization, adjustable tone curves and auto panoramas, while surprising all of us by also including built-in stabilisation. The latter, while widely leaked in the run-up to the GX7's launch, remains a surprise every time I read or write it.
  • Pros: 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 conditions., Fastest shutter of 1/8000 quicker than most mirrorless., Built-in Wifi with excellent smartphone remote control., Focus peaking for stills and movies., 1080p video with full manual exposure control.
  • Cons: 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 to tearing artefacts for some people., Image quality not improved over rival M4/3 models.

  • Summary: There's no question that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 is a real leap forward in comparison to its predecessor, the GX1. Every area of the camera has been improved, resulting in one of the best compact system cameras available for serious photographers looking for a high-quality camera for travel or documentary photography.

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

Good Gear Guide.au
4 September 2013
  • Summary: 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 the power of a DSLR.
  • Pros: Complete feature-set, Good image and video quality, Solid build quality
  • Cons: Viewfinder and touchscreen a perilous combo, Over-exposes photos in bright daylight, Wi-Fi is an afterthought
