Great camera, but video is 50fps (not 60) = euro version. But no PAL affect on video files played on a computer.

  • Summary: No complaints on the camera so far. I was happy to get access to a black version for the U.S. but the camera only does video in 50fps which is Euro specs. Other reviewers mention PAL and so forth, but the files are not TV signal quality, they are computer files. Since B and H has a black version, I took my chances and figured it was the newly available US version. After reading the manual, I realized it was the Euro version.

A lot of power packed in a small package

  • Excerpt: I used it for taking with me backpacking instead of the heavier Canon 60D. GX7 delivered performance and the flexibility of a DSLR. Love its level indicator when taking landscape pictures.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

GX7 versus an older Nikon compact

Kindle Customer "D. Flowers", Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: This review is only on the body since I purchased a longer zoom lens for bird photography. Coming from a Nikon P7100 with a larger crop factor, this is my first mirco-four thirds camera and third panasonic. I purchased the GX7 primarily for the enthusiast features, size, and lens selection and am not disappointed. The exposure compensation override was my main concern but it is easy to use and needed.

  • Excerpt: The Lumix GX7 is a sweet compact fully featured camera. It takes some beautiful pictures. And as a beginner who wants to learn more about photography, it supplies me with the full feature set of a DSLR without having the weight.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

Nice camera, wireless functionality not good

A. Brunner, Amazon

  • Summary: Plenty of reviews on this camera as a shooter, I'm going to focus on one of the major features Panasonic touts for this model, which is the WiFi support. In short, it's not good. I'm a software engineer and use WiFi all the time at home and work, and it took me more than an hour of puzzling over the Panny UI/manual to finally get it to connect to an AP and see my Mac.

little big camera

JD, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The GX1 was a pretty good pro-sumer compact m34 camera, but it's lack of a built-in DVF was a big knock against it. The external DVF was an essential but somewhat cumbersome accessory. The new GX7 solves that problem, adds extra ISO snesitivity, in-body IS, and a tilting LCD. The tilting LCD would've been much better if it was fully-articulated with a swing-out and flip-over feature that would cover the LCD to protect it, but as is, it's at least useful for composing...
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact

Good for a first-time M 4/3 camera buyer- but wait if you're upgrading

harikwt, Ebay

  • Summary: Good for a first time buy- but would suggest waiting for a while for the price to come down further if you are switching from another Lumix G series. I bought this GX-7 as an upgrade from my GF2 body that I bought a couple of years back. My first impression is that the GX-7's image quality isn't way superior to the GF-2's to justify a 750 dollar spending. Maybe my opinion of the GX-7 will change for the better after I use it for a month.

Well worth the money

Bill, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Most of the film based cameras I have owned were rangefinders and Panasonic has done well to capture the look and feel of a good rangefinder camera. The build quality is excellent. The viewfinder is clear and sharp and there is no delay in switching between the viewfinder and the LCD screen. I found the LCD screen was often useless in bright outdoor light, so to me a viewfinder is a must.
  • Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Viewfinder, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated menus, Funky Wifi, Too many buttons
