    Overview

    Extract “The Moments” with 4K Photo
    Record your precious memories in breath-taking 4K video and extract the most special moments with 4K Photo. This hybrid 4K camera preserves your life in rich, Ultra High-Definition detail forever.


    Key Features

    Post Focus - Select the in-focus area even after shooting
    Have you ever imagined that you can set sharp focus on the target subject after you shot the images? Now you can easily do it with the Post Focus function. The function has been developed based on Panasonic 4K and high-speed, high-precision DFD (Depth From Defocus) auto focus technology. Shooting the image on the spot to save it as you like later - it's a whole new photographic experience for creative freedom.

    4K Video and 4K Photo — Capture the perfect moment
    Special moments you want to remember can occur at any time and should be captured in the best resolution possible. Now Panasonic's 4K technology is available for everyone. With the LUMIX G7, you will be able to record video in 4K (up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 25 fps, 100Mbit/s). With the 4K Photo feature, you can also extract the perfect frame out of a 4K video (30 frames per second) sequence easily on the camera and save it as an 8 megapixel still image.

    Focus on the moment
    Be ready to grab the next sudden shutter opportunity. Adding Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology* to Contrast AF has achieved both higher precision and greater speed at approximately 0,07 seconds**. This combines with approximately 200% AF Tracking performance***, 8 frames per second burst shooting in full resolution, and UHS-II SDXC Memory Card compatibility to turn those once-in-a-lifetime moments into memories that last forever.
    * Contrast AF with DFD technology works only with Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lenses.
    ** In AFS, with the H-FS14140.

    Everything in the right place
    Not only does the LUMIX G7 feature a stylish, sophisticated body and a snug, hand-fitting grip, it also provides an intuitive level of operation. The Live View Finder (LVF) helps you frame your images even under bright sunlight conditions, and the body design lets you freely customise settings. The front/rear dials control the main aperture and shutter speed settings, while easily switching to handle temporary WB and ISO adjustments. Settings can also be assigned to six function buttons.* In addition, the 4K Photo mode can quickly be active by using the 4K Photo feature on the drive mode dial.
    * Six buttons on the body and five buttons on the menu.

    4K Video — More details than Full HD
    Whether you are watching movies or editing videos, 4K delivers a far more intense viewing experience than you have seen before. Its native resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels is four times larger than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail. Even if you export your footage filmed in 4K to a Full HD TV, the video files will have even better definition and crisper details than those filmed in Full HD.
    * When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3.

    4K Photo — Capture the perfect moment
    Using the high resolution of 4K, the 4K Photo function allows you to extract individual frames from a video sequence (filmed at 30 frames per second) to capture those magical moments that only occur at a split second. With 4K Photo you can always be assured that you have the freedom to decide on your very own 'perfect moment'.

    4K Photo modes – Free your creativity
    The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes, all of them allowing you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames per second:
    4K Burst - The camera keeps on shooting 8 megapixel images at ultra-high burst rate as long as the shutter button is pressed.
    4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) - This function is the standard 4K Photo function where you are able to record a 4K movie to extract any frame as an 8 megapixel image later.
    4K Pre-Burst - The camera starts recording a 4K sequence with '4K Pre-Burst' mode, even one second before/after you press the shutter button. This allows you to capture all of those unpredictable moments and choose your favourites.

    High speed auto-focusing with DFD technology
    Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to Panasonic's Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology*. This technology instantly calculates the distance between items inside the frame and drives the focus of the lens in one fast, continuous movement. This system results in AF speeds up to 0,07 seconds** and a burst shooting speed with AFC of 6 frames per second. It also increases the stability of continuous focusing when shooting video.
    * Contrast AF with DFD technology works only with Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lenses.
    ** In AFS, with the H-FS14140.

    Fast and precise AF tracking
    With this system of AF tracking, not only the colour but also the size and motion vector of the subject are recognised, enabling the camera to lock on the subject even more securely. The result is the AF tracking performance of approximately 200% or greater which refrains the camera from losing the subject*.

    Focusing in low light conditions — Star Light AF
    Low Light AF makes it possible to focus subjects more precisely in -4EV low-light situations, with no other light source. The LUMIX G7 also integrates the Starlight AF to let you shoot a star in the night sky with auto focus by accurate calculation of the contrast value in a smaller AF zone.

    High image quality even in low light conditions
    The 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor in combination with the Venus Engine captures both high quality images and high speed signal processing. The superior noise reduction system enables crisp images even in low-light conditions up to ISO 25,600. The Venus Engine also excels in diffraction compensation to make images crisp and clear even when shooting with a small aperture.

    Perfect sight and framing
    The LUMIX G7 comes with a high-resolution (2,360k-dot) OLED Live View Finder which allows high visibility thanks to a 10,000:1 contrast and perfect framing even under direct sunlight conditions. Also with all your settings displayed right in front of your eye, your pictures will always come out exactly how you want them to. A rear monitor also features higher visibility even for sunny outdoor shooting. And, the tilt/swivel touch-display gives you the freedom to find unusual perspectives while maintaining easy operation and full image control.

    Focus peaking
    To give the most precise focus control possible, the LUMIX G7 has a manual focus peaking function, that shows you which area is in focus and how far the depth of field extends. Areas in focus are displayed on the screen in colour to make sure you have the area you want perfectly sharp and in-focus every time.

    Silent shooting
    There are many situations when you want your camera to be absolutely silent, such as taking pictures of animals. When using the electronic shutter of LUMIX G Cameras, the mirrorless system is considered noiseless thanks to the fast and silent AF-System in the lenses and the lack of shutter noise.

    Unwire your creativity via Wi-Fi
    The connectivity features of LUMIX G7 expands the usability of your camera. The camera can be controlled by using the 'Panasonic Image App' on your smartphone or tablet device enabling you to view the image, set the focus, release the shutter from a distance or review photographs on the large screen of your tablet. You can also share your images on social media:
    Easy sharing - using on your smartphone or tablet.
    Geotagging - The LUMIX G7 knows exactly where it is by using the GPS log / tag of your smartphone or tablet.
