Features

In-Camera Stabilization for Non-Stabilized Lenses The LUMIX GX7 incorporates an optical image stabilizer-like technology directly in the camera body. This in-camera LUMIX MEGA O.I.S.* technology works as effectively with interchangeable non-optically stabilized lenses, to enjoy blur-free photography.

* Nearly as effective as the LUMIX MEGA O.I.S. in LUMIX DSLM lenses.

Share Instantly with Wi-Fi and One-Touch Device Connection with NFC With the Panasonic Image App, you can use a smartphone or tablet to control zoom, set focus, and shoot remote from a distance. The Wi-Fi setup is quick and easy and picture data can be transferred to a designated electronic device right after shooting. You can instantly upload and share your images on a Social Networking Service with your smartphone, and NFC (Near Field Communication) technology connects the camera with a smartphone or tablet by simply bringing them together.
Touch Enabled 3.0" Tilt-able LCD Optimized for even sunny, outdoor shooting, the 1040K-dot high-resolution static-type touch monitor delivers approximately 100% field of view and tilts up by 45 degrees and down by 80 degrees. The front panel is directly attached to the In Cell Touch LCD without containing an air layer in-between, resulting in reduced reflection of external light. Combined with increased resolution, the monitor for LUMIX GX7 delivers higher visibility even in sunny outdoor shooting.
Light Weight, Durable Magnesium Alloy Body Dressed in a magnesium alloy, full die-cast frame, the LUMIX GX7 boasts high durability for any shooting situation. State-of-the-art imaging is delivered in a sophisticated, stylish metal body.
Precise Focusing with Contrast AF System All LUMIX G cameras boast the sophisticated Contrast AF focus system. Compared with the Phase Difference AF focus system, Contrast AF delivers higher accuracy especially when shooting with a bright lens and a small F-stop. The LUMIX GX7 features quick Light Speed AF, making it possible to capture even the fastest moving subjects clearly.
Panasonic LUMIX GX7: The Artisan's Camera for Your Creative Vision The Panasonic LUMIX GX7 is a creative DSLM street camera that brings an artisan's vision to life. Smaller and sleeker than a DSLR, the LUMIX GX7 delivers the power of exceptional image quality in difficult to shoot street photos and video discreetly. Discover powerful optical quality and viewfinder accuracy, flexibility to control the creative process, and seamlessly switch between photo and video with the LUMIX GX7. The photographic world is at your fingertips when you pair the LUMIX GX7 with the full line-up of LUMIX G/LEICA DG lenses.
Seamless 16MP Photos and Full HD Video 1080/60p The LUMIX GX7 is a hybrid creative camera featuring full-HD 1920 x 1080/60p smooth, high quality video recording in AVCHD Progressive and MP4 format with stereo sound. Full-time AF and tracking AF are also available in cinema-like 24p video with a bit rate of maximum 24 Mbps. 16MP P / A / S / M photo modes are available in video, delivering exceptional professional-like video recording by manually setting aperture and shutter speed.
Find Your Inner Artist Using Creative Control with 22 Effects and Creative Panorama The popular Creative Control mode performs beautifully with 22 filter effects. You can even adjust the parameter of each filter effect to capture your true artistic vision. With the Creative Panorama function, you can shoot a horizontal/vertical panoramic image with consecutive shots by overlaying the previous picture. The multiple images are stitched together in the camera to create one single-wide image capturing your scene. After you've captured your image, you can get creative with one of the panoramic filter effects.

* For photos only, and some filters cannot be used in Creative Panorama mode

Increase Focus Accuracy with Focus Peaking and Magnification Windows For more precise control over focusing, the LUMIX GX7 incorporates Focus Peaking that shows the peak of focus. The precise area of focus is indicated while viewing the subject in live view. Pin-Point AF allows you to set magnification from 3x to 10x. The One-Shot AF sets the rough focus on the subject where you can then go back to MF to adjust precise focus.
Expand Your Creativity with a Full Line-Up of Lenses The LUMIX GX7 achieves ultra fast performance with a maximum 1/8000 shutter speed. In-body optical image stabilizer-like image stabilization*, delivers exceptional performance when mounting non-stabilized lenses to the LUMIX GX7. Every Panasonic LUMIX lens is exclusively designed for DSLM cameras taking advantage of digital technologies such as high-precision, high-speed Contrast AF.

* Nearly as effective as the LUMIX MEGA O.I.S. in LUMIX DSLM lenses.

Discover Ultimate Picture Quality The LUMIX GX7 captures high-quality photos and video with realistic details through exceptional resolution and color reproduction. Panasonic delivers a 16.00-Megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor that achieves both high resolution and high sensitivity image quality with minimum noise. The Venus Engine features advanced noise reduction systems delivering smooth images especially in low light scenes. The Live MOS Sensor works in concert with the Venus Engine achieving a maximum ISO of 25600.
Premium Body Design with Precision Quality Separate dials, on the top and back, improve manual shooting performance. The external design of the camera was developed with every detail in mind. LUMIX GX7 offers luxurious comfort in shooting with stunning performance. The LUMIX GX7¿s 1/8000 shutter speed captures fast moving subjects. Silent Mode switches the shutter from mechanical to electronic, and turns off all sounds and focus lamps for special shooting occasions where you need to be discreet.

DMC-GX7K is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little travel camera I've had a GX-7 for over a year now. I pitched my APSC gear and I would never go back. For my purposes, there's no real difference in the picture quality. This little guy has a lot more features that are useful to me: multiple saved configurations, WiFi mode, two movie modes, one quick and dirty, the other one giving more control, and more. They just weren't available on my big black DSLR. Some reviewers have knocked the EVF; I do notice the glare and reflections on the viewfinder (not on the image) when the sun is over my right shoulder (if I wear glasses). I get around that by wearing a hat or taking my glasses off while shooting. Other reviewers have complained about the tearing and rainbows from the field sequential screen. I haven't noticed this. All in all, bang for the buck, it's great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent DLSR alternative. Better than expected. Micro 4/3 have small sensors compared to full framed Dlsr's. But for advanced costumer, more than enough features. Lens choices are abundant. I am currently using Canon FD lens 50 mm 1.8. Sweet Bokeh.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from GX7 Problem I have been waiting for this set of features on a camera for a long time. The auto focus is fast, the HDR is great, and the peaking for manual focus is really nice. My biggest problem is that the lens diaphragm is not circular. It is egg shaped. Panasonic part's department has been a nightmare. I really wanted to like this camera, but the lens issue has left me very unhappy. I could not recommend this camera to anyone else.

  • How do I install firmware in my camera using an SD card?
    Digital Still Camera Firmware Update Guide.

    1) Preparation before attempting the update.

    A. Make sure the camera's battery is completely charged. If the battery is not completely charged the firmware update will not begin. Format the SD memory card in the camera, then take a couple of pictures.
    B. Turn off the camera.

    2) Copying the Firmware to your memory card.
    A. Download the latest firmware update for your model by clicking on the "Download Ver. X.X " link to a location on your computer (we recommend the "Desktop").

    C. Open the zipped firmware file that you downloaded to the desktop.

    D. For"PC" users, locate your SD Card by clicking on, or opening the"My Computer" or"Computer" on your desktop or your"Start" menu. For"Mac" users, can use"Finder" if the drive does not mount to your desktop.

Drag the .bin file from the opened folder to the device that either says Panasonic or mass storage to complete the transfer.

    G."SDXC cards, 32GB or larger, require special card readers. Depending on your PC, and the age of its operating system, you may not be able to directly write to such large cards.
