Panasonic Lumix GX7 officially revealed: 16MP, Wi-Fi and NFC specs confirmed
Following 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.
