Panasonic Lumix GX7, sub-$1000 (without lense) compact Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless camera

Posted by – September 22, 2013

Panasonic launches their new Lumix GX7 compact Micro 4/3 Mirorrless camera with interchangeable lenses, showing it for the first time for people to try it out at IFA 2013. The Panasonic GX7 has classical retro-like analogue designs in silver and black styles and features modern cutting edge technology. The camera supports the latest new Panasonic lenses and also supports the usage of older lenses with adapters. The small size of the camera doesn’t prevent it from offering better image quality even than the Panasonic GH3 (which is the camera I use since January of this year). The quality offered by the GX7 is one of the best of any camera on the market today. Panasonic has developed a whole new sensor. The retail Price is about 1000 Euros in Europe and about $1000 in the USA. The GX7 offers basic video recording features similar to the GH3 but is not designed with that functionality in mind (does not support mini-jack audio input for example). Panasonic’s Lumix cameras are designed and manufactured in Japan. Panasonic itself has been manufacturing cameras for years often for other brand names. Panasonic also made cameras before they introduced the Lumix brand name in 2008. How soon for Panasonic’s consumer 4K cameras? Will there be a sub-$2000 Lumix GH4 with 4K support next year?
