4K Video and 4K Photo Never miss the perfect moment
Formerly the preserve of professional filmmakers and photographers, LUMIX G7 is opening up the world of 4K to everyone. Whether you’re making movie memories to last a lifetime, or taking amazing stills from your 4K footage, the G7 is changing photography, for good.
Furthermore, with the 4K Photo feature, you can extract the perfect frame from a 4K video sequence easily, on the camera, and save it as an 8 megapixel still image.
The LUMIX G7 frees your creativity for both video and photo
Focus on the Moment
Find absolute sharpness in a split-second with Panasonic's Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus technology*. Where traditional auto focus only analyses the contrasts in an image, DFD predicts your focal point by comparing two images with different depth of field, for better results in less time. This new system results in AF speeds up to 0,07 seconds** and a burst shooting speed with AF tracking of 7 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.
Everything in the right place
Not only does the LUMIX G7 feature a solid design but also truly intuitive operation. The body design allows you to instantly access key functions like the front aperture and shutter speed dial. Settings can also be assigned to six easy to operate function buttons (fn-buttons)*.
- * Six buttons on the body and five buttons on the menu.
Intelligent Auto Mode - Easy to use
Your LUMIX G7 comes with generations of photographic knowledge built-in and ready to use. Face detection, intelligent ISO settings, intelligent scene guide and AF tracking are just some of the many functions that make the LUMIX G a truly smart photography tool. Just select the iA mode and you can rely on the camera to take excellent photos in any given situation.
