Panasonic_GX7_official.jpgFollowing this week’s earlier leak, Panasonic have finally officially lifted the covers off their Lumix GX7 camera, landing as the replacement for their Lumix GX1 snapper.

Making use of a new 16MP sensor “far beyond anything [Panasonic] have launched before”, the company claims it can compee with APS-C or DSLR format large sensors in terms of low-light shooting performance.

Featuring a retro aesthetic, he GX7 also makes use of the new Venus processing engine, again useful for toning down noise in low-light conditions.

The camera will also feature built-in Wi-Fi and NFC tech, using a 1040k-dot adjustable LCD screen for previewing snaps on. There’s also a 2760k-dot viewfinder, which can sit almost flush with the camera’s body.

Other features include 22 Instagram-style filters that can be applied to your snaps, a 1/8000 second max shutter speed, pinpoint AF and stop-motion video capture.

In terms of pricing, you’relooking at a body-only price of £819, £899 with the standard 14-42mm lens included or £999 for a kit which includes a 20mm f/1.7 lens.
