Panasonic just revealed their second 4K mirrorless as the advanced Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7. This Micro Four-Thirds camera slots itself just below the professional Panasonic GH4 reviewed here while offering professional-level controls, including dual control-dials and a built 2.4 megapixels EVF with Eye-Start sensor. It forfeits a weather-sealed body in favor of being lighter and smaller.
The G7 boasts a 16 megapixels Four-Thirds sensor with native ISO 200 to 25600 sensitivity range, expandable to ISO 100. It can capture full-resolution images at 8 FPS plus full Ultra-HD 3840×2160 video at 30 FPS with stereo sound, either from the built-in microphone or from an external audio source.
A new combined electronic and mechanical shutter allows a wide range of shutter-speeds, from 1/16000s to 60s, plus bulb exposures up to 120s. The electronic shutter also enables 4K stills at 30 FPS. As usual with high-end Panasonic mirrorless, this one offers plenty of drive modes including Time-Lapse and Stop-Motion.
