Panasonic launches new mirrorless camera GX7
Panasonic has unveiled the Lumix DMC-GX7, its latest mirrorless system camera using the Micro Four Thirds standard.
The 16-megapixel camera, which sports a retro-rangefinder style design, comes with a durable magnesium alloy full die-cast frame. Its main feature is the new built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) that can be tilted upwards, to a 90-degree angle, and has a high resolution of 2.76 million dots. The GX7 also has a rear tiltable 3-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1.04 million dots.
In addition, this new camera offers an ultra fast shutter speed of 1/8000, which is a feature previously available only on high-end DSLR cameras. This allows a shooting speed of up to 5 frames per second, and it also comes with an in-body image stabiliser.
The GX7 also has built-in Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication capabilities, for users to send photos to, or remotely take pictures, with their Android or iOS devices using Panasonic's Image App.
