Initally announced in August, Panasonic's flagship 16 megapixel Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera the Panasonic Lumix GX7 features a tilting Live View Finder and more buttons than you can shake a stick at.
All for angles
The unique bit about the GX7 would be its tiltable viewfinder that can be adjusted to up to 90 degrees for taking easier low angle shots. The viewfinder has a very sensitive eye sensor and it flips modes the instant it you stick it up to your face. The camera’s also assuredly tough, made of magnesium alloy for good heft without being overweight.
The GX7 has a powerful 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine combo that makes for finer details and speedier shooting along with Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities to hook up your smartphone to your cam. Emphasizing on accessibility, the camera has a whole slew of function buttons within easy reach of your thumb, the functions of which can also be accessed directly from the tiltable 3-inch touchscreen.
For those into arty images, the camera has 22 filter effects to play with; inclusive of popular ones like Miniature and HDR, but have also included three new Monochrome effects as well, Rough Monochrome, Silky Monochrome and an improved Monochrome.
No solid word on pricing yet, but the GX7 will be hitting the shelves at the end of the month for between RM 3,000 to RM 4,000 as hinted by Panasonic reps.
