GENERAL

The DMC GX7 was introduced by Panasonic in September 2013. It belongs to the Mirrorless Cameras category.

Panasonic is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Panasonic.

SENSOR

The DMC GX7 features a CMOS sensor in Four Thirds size that has an area of approximately 17 x 13 mm² (0.68" x 0.51").

This infographic compares the DMC GX7's sensor to other common formats:

(The 1-Euro coin used for scale has a diameter of 23.25mm, slightly smaller than a US quarter.)

The DMC GX7's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 16 megapixel. The resolution is somewhat below average but will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 size.

The Panasonic supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Panasonic's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

The DMC GX7 features a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning.

VIEWFINDER

The DMC GX7 uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.76 megapixel, an excellent value for a viewfinder like this which makes the camera a joy to use.

The magnifcation is c. 0.70x, an above average value for an electronic viewfinder.

The infographic illustrates the viewfinder magnification of the DMC GX7. The black area represents a magnification of 1x, corresponding to natural size. The red frame indicates the largest viewfinder magnification in any digital camera on the market today (0.85x).

Tip: If the viewfinder image of the DMC GX7 is fuzzy, us the little wheel next to the viewfinder to adjust the sharpness.

The Panasonic will also allow spot metering, a must for challenging motives.

AUTO FOCUS

The DMC GX7's auto focus processor uses 23 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when panning the camera).

Manual focus is also possible with the Panasonic, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

FLASH

The DMC GX7 features a built-in flash with a range of up to 5m (17 ft.). That range will work for most situations.

A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Panasonic's hotshoe. Very useful for indirect flashes or for trigggering remote flashes.

DISPLAY
DMC GX7 display and touch screen

The DMC GX7 features a monitor with a diagonal of 75.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.04 megapixel. That's about average.

The camera's display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.

The DMC GX7's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the DMC GX7, the highest supported resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixel, in other words Full HD Video. 4K videos are not supported by the Panasonic.

A connector for an external microphone is missing from the Panasonic. A built-in mike will usually record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is not always what the film maker wants. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

MISC. FUNCTIONS

Let's have a look at some other features of the Panasonic DMC GX7:

The DMC GX7 doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom. However, with Wifi built-in, location data can also be added via a connected smartphone.

The DMC GX7 features a built-in stabilizer. A plus when using legacy zooms or tele lenses without stabilizer.

A nice addition is the Panasonic's electronic level. The camera displays an indicator on the monitor that makes it super-easy to level the camera horizontally, very useful when doing architectural photography.

If you are into HDRs, the camera won't create those automatically. You will have to manually create image sequences and later assemble those sequnces in third-party software.

The DMC GX7 is not environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; keep that in mind in the rain and on the beach.

BATTERY

The Panasonic DMC GX7 works with a BLG10E LiIon battery. The battery lifetime is a generous 320 shots. Usually enough for a full day or more.

The battery can be charged over USB while in camera. Very useful, especially on vacation when most people bring a USB charger for their smartphone anyway.
