The Panasonic Lumix G7 is a true hybrid interchangeable lens camera. Its 4K Video and ground breaking 4K Photo mode equips professional and amateur shooters with the ability to capture the decisive moment with stunning, razor sharp clarity.
16 Megapixel Sensor & Quad-Core Venus Processor
At its heart the DMC-G7 utilises a 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor that produces detail rich stills and amazing QFHD 4K video with high contrast and true-to-life colour reproduction. It is paired with a quad-core Venus Engine 9 imaging processor to deliver the power required to capture those moments too fast for the human eye to register.
With a maximum ISO25600 capability, it allows the photographer to work with a broad range of lighting conditions. The processor also handles white balance, direct exposure metering, intelligent noise reduction and lightning fast focus, ensuring superior accuracy in exposure with low-noise results, even in poor lighting.
Built-in Diffraction Compensation
A Diffraction Compensation setting can further bolster image sharpness by digitally correcting image blur in-camera, enabling you to shoot with slower shutter speeds or smaller apertures with confidence.
100Mbps 4K Ultra High Definition Video
One-touch 4K Ultra High Definition video recording is available in any shooting mode to ensure you’re ready to capture any moment without having to change modes or navigate the menu. Frame rates and resolutions supported include 3840×2160 at 30p in MP4 at an astonishing 100Mbps and full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 at 60p videos in AVCHD Progressive or MP4 (MPEG-4 / H.264) format.
An intuitive 4K video interface also allows you to extract a high quality 8-megapixel still from a pre-recorded video. Perfect for mixed media productions and capturing those truly fleeting moments.
Post Focus Function
A revolutionary Post Focus option (may require firmware update) allows photographers to capture a scene and decide the focal point later. The Post Focus combines the camera's existing Depth from Defocus autofocusing and movie capabilities to record roughly one second of MP4 video at 30 frames per second. During this recording, the camera's autofocusing system scans the lens around the subject, moving from the foreground to the background to cover the entire scene. In playback mode the focal point can then be selected by simply touching the point that you want to appear sharp. The camera automatically selects the optimum frame and gives you the option to export it as a 8 megapixel JPEG image.
Built-in Stereo Microphone & 3.5mm Input
A built in stereo microphone features a built-in wind-cut filter for clear audio capture, even when shooting outdoors. For professional applications, a 3.5mm input is available for use with external on-camera microphones and wireless audio receivers.
8fps Continuous Burst Mode
Equipped with a traditional full-resolution burst mode that is capable of 8fps with single-shot focus or 6fps with continuous focus is already impressive by today’s standards.
4K Photos @ 30fps
However, the G7 pushes burst mode shooting to the next level with three 4K Photo functions - 4K Burst Shooting, 4K Burst (Start/Stop) and 4K Pre-burst. Redefining how sports and action photographers capture the most fleeting moments, all three modes produce a detailed 8-megapixel series of images at an impressive 30fps.
4K Burst Shooting
4K Burst shooting is similar to your standard burst mode. Press the shutter a split second before the action, hold it down during the action and release when the action is over. The main difference with the 4K Burst shooting is that it can keep shooting for a maximum 29 minutes and 59 seconds, allowing you to capture extended periods of fast movement with ease.
4K Burst (Start/Stop) is the same as 4K Burst shooting, except instead of holding down the shutter, you press the shutter once to start and then press again to stop.
4K Pre-Burst mode is great for unpredictable action. It sets the camera to continuously hold 30 frames in its cache one second before you press the shutter, compensating for your reaction time. Once the shutter is pressed, it takes another 30 frames, leaving you with an efficient 60 frames, saving space on your SD card and ensuring even the briefest moments can be captured faithfully.
Lightning Fast Autofocus
Fast and precise autofocus is a natural requirement for high speed shooting. Its innovative Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) instantly calculates the distance to a subject then quickly fine-tunes to achieve critical focus in as little as 0.07 seconds. Additionally its advanced focus tracking ability analyses the colour, size, and motion vector of moving objects for consistently sharp results no matter what is happening in front of your lens.
2.36 Million Dot EVF & 3-inch LCD Touchscreen
Composition and playback is available via a 2360k-dot OLED electronic view finder, or a 3-inch 1040k-dot tilt/swivel Touchscreen LCD. The 10000:1 contrast and 100% coverage of the EVF delivers pixel perfect composition across a broad range of lighting scenarios, while the generously sized flip-out LCD is ideal for high and low angle shooting plus intuitive menu navigation and playback.
Built-in WiFi enables fast, stress-free connection with your compatible smartphone or tablet. Utilising the free Panasonic Image App enables instant sharing to your friends, family and favourite social networks. The app also delivers wireless camera control and transforms your smart device into remote viewfinder and remote control, allowing you to shoot from a distance.
Photo and Video Versatility
Packed with features appreciated by professional and enthusiast photographers and filmmakers, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 is a true jack of all trades that has the capability to shoot photos or film 4K video in virtually any scenario thrown its way.
