Overview

The revolutionary Panasonic LUMIX G7 offers over 24 compact lens options built on the next generation interchangeable lens camera standard (Micro Four Thirds) pioneered by Panasonic. It’s “mirrorless” design enables a lighter, more compact camera body, while also offering cutting-edge video, audio, creative controls, wireless, intelligent-focusing, and exposure technologies not possible with traditional DSLRs. And with our exclusive LUMIX 4K Ultra HD video pause and export as a 4K Photo mode, you’ll never again miss that one shot that perfectly captures a scene.

A Better Choice for High Image Quality

The LUMIX G7’s 16 megapixel sensor operates much like the larger sensors found in traditional DSLR cameras. The G7, however, also features a next-generation intelligent image processor that produces video and photos free from artifacts that degrade image quality. You can even capture stunning, high-quality images in low light conditions up to an amazing ISO 25,600. The LUMIX G7 also compensates for common image-quality problems caused by shooting with a small lens aperture.

4K PHOTO Function — Never Miss that Perfect Moment

Those once-in-a-lifetime special moments are often missed due to slow focusing, slow burst modes, or simply not pressing the shutter button at the right time. The LUMIX G7 features exclusive 4K Ultra HD* video technology you can use to pause and extract that perfect photo moment in time as a high resolution photo [up to 8 megapixel]. With 4K Ultra HD video at 30 frames per second, you’ll never miss a photo again.

*Actual resolution: up to QFHD 3840 x 2160p, 30 fps, 100Mbit/s

4K Video — 4X More Detail Than Full HD

4K Ultra HD video* delivers a far more intense viewing experience when compared to Full HD, with 4X times the number of pixels. Whether shared through social media in 4K or resized to Full HD TV, your video files will feature superior definition and crisper detail than those originally filmed in Full HD with a camcorder.

*When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3 [U3]. Native 4K resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels

4K PHOTO Function — Never Miss the Perfect Moment Ever Again

The G7’s 4K PHOTO function allows you to play, pause, and extract individual high-resolution photos from 4K Ultra HD video filmed at 30 frames per second so you’re assured of capturing those split-second magical moments.

4K Photo Modes — Three Ways to Get the Perfect Shot

The 4K PHOTO function includes three different modes, all leveraging the G7’s 30-frames-per-second video capture rate.
4K Burst
Continually captures 8 megapixel photos when the shutter button remains pressed.

4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop)
Simply record a 4K video and then Play, Pause and Extract any frame as an 8 megapixel photo. It’s the easiest way ever to capture that perfect photo.

4K Pre-Burst
4K Pre-Burst mode initiates a 4K video sequence one second before and after the shutter button is pressed. This gives you an extra 60 images from which to select and is perfect for those unpredictable, spur-of-the-moment photo ops.

Intuitive Controls

Featuring a retro modern design, the LUMIX G7 is smaller and lighter than traditional DSLRs, yet still provides intuitive, easy access to common functions. Easily control aperture and shutter settings with the front and rear dials while making white balance and ISO adjustments on the fly. You can also assign favorite settings to any of the six function buttons,* or simply capture the shot by activating the exclusive 4K PHOTO Mode from the feature drive mode dial.

* Six buttons on the body and five buttons on the menu.

High-Visibility View Finder

A high-resolution (2,360k-dot) OLED Live View Finder on the LUMIX G7 features 10,000:1 contrast and perfect framing, so you’ll enjoy high visibility—even under direct sunlight. Plus, the tilt/swivel touch-display lets you further adjust the screen for optimum clarity.

Fast and Precise Auto Focus Tracking

Intelligent auto focusing [AF] tracks the color, size, and motion vector of the subject, enabling quick and precise focus lock. So you’ll shoot with confidence without worrying about blurry results.

High Speed Auto-Focusing with DFD Technology

The LUMIX G7 utilizes Panasonic’s exclusive Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology* which instantly calculates the distance to subjects, then quickly adjusts the focus. Enjoy AF speeds up to 0,07 seconds** and burst shooting speeds with Continuous Auto Focus [AFC] of 6 frames per second. Our DFD AF technology also enhances focus stability when shooting video.

* Contrast AF with DFD technology requires Panasonic brand Micro Four Thirds lenses.
** In AFS, with the H-FS14140.

Better Control for More Enjoyable Photography

Focus Peaking
A manual “focus peaking” color outline indicates the exact in-focus area along with depth-of-field distance.

Silent Shooting
Shoot silently in hushed settings with a quiet and fast AF System and with no shutter noise.

Starlight AF
-4EV low light auto focus lets you clearly capture subjects using only moonlight as a light source.

Unwire Your Creativity via Wi-Fi®
With the Panasonic Image App and a Wi-Fi connection, you can control various functions on the LUMIX G7 using a smartphone or tablet device, such as view, focus, shutter release, or geotagging. Then, share your photos on your favorite social networks directly from your mobile device.

Flexible Expandability Options

TThe LUMIX G7 can be combined with the DMW-FL580L External Flash, the DMW-MS2 Stereo/Shotgun Microphone and many other accessories. It’s also compatible with newer BUS Class UHS-I/UHS-II SDXC/SDHC SD cards capable of storing high-resolution 4K videos, and meeting the demands of 4K Photo and RAW mode burst shooting.

* When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3 [U3].

DMC-G7HK is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money, returning. The camera does take great photos and video, but the rest? Where is the digital zoom>? Wifi is difficult, and only connection was to my iPhone. Tried 3 different networks and would not work. Connect to two different TV's, can display photo, but video will not play on either. Saw firmare update, what a joke, The instructions do not work at all, I give up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Video Camera I initially got attracted to the Panasonic Lumix G7 because of the 4K video capabilities. After about 3 months of using it, I really love the video quality and ease of use. I can extract pictures from the 4K videos or I can just record HD videos with excellent resolution. For taking pictures, in addition to the standard features, it has many filters and special effects that make it a fun camera to use. It does have an iA(+) setup that will automate all the settings and give you a very good picture. The main pro's are... very light, (camera and lenses) great video recorder, (4K is fabulous) and it is a great mirrorless camera for the value. In addition, the view finder is awesome! it works like a small screen where you can see all your setup while showing the video in real colors. The cons are... The 4K video is not as smooth as the standard HD video when playing it. Also, when you record and pan the camera, if you are also zooming in or out, the recording will not show smoothly. That said, I have shelved my Nikon D90 and I have been using exclusively the G7 and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lumix G6, but better! The G6 is already great - the addition of 4K technology here makes the G7 phenomenal!
Date published: 2015-11-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera Easy to use This my upgrade from Lumix G3, this great camera my good I love 4K, since i get this stop using my Nikon D5200 and D7200, quality still picture can beat any full frame DSLR's both canon and nikon.
Date published: 2015-11-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "GH4 light!" Wonderful image quality, extremely customizable. Been using Nikons for DECADES, and this is the camera that made me completely switch over to Panasonic. What a delight to carry such a light camera! The 14-140 lens is exceptionally sharp for a superzoom. At a wedding last Saturday, I shot the whole cake-cutting ceremony as a 4K video clip and pulled stills out of it later. Was able to advance frame-by-frame to get precisely the moment I wanted to capture as a still photo.
Date published: 2015-07-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The stills are magnificent! I shoot in JPG+RAW and find the JPEGs are much better than I expected. Focus is extremely quick! The MP4 4K video does use a lot of memory. I have experimented with it and downressed it to 1080P in Sony Vegas. This is proven to give higher resolution and DR than std. 1080P The AVCHD video functions are quite adequate for everyday shooting. Would like to have 120 frames added in the future. I am still getting used to the buttons and functions. It really is not hard to use. The 4K stills from video works great! The camera feels good to hold, very light and has room for thumb placement w/out hitting a button. The LVF is the best that I have ever seen. Love the electronic shutter function! And yes the low light performance was much better that I hoped for! The face-eye auto focus detection is crazy good! Amazing little camera!
