Panasonic has announced the DMC-G7 CSC with 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor which is the latest camera to join the Lumix-G range of interchangeable lens cameras. The camera features 4K video recording (QFHD in 3840×2160 at 25p) capability along with a variety of 4K photo functions including 4K Burst Shooting, 4K Burst (Start/Stop) and 4K Pre-burst, cropping the exact frame you want out of the 4K video footage.
Panasonic has also integrated Depth From Defocus technology into the camera, shortening the focus time needed.
The Venus Engine image processor with quad-core CPU also enables high-speed signal processing at 8 fps (AFS) / 6 fps (AFC). There is also a new and improved Multi-process Noise Reduction system that applies effective noise reduction and detail processing based on the conditions of each shot. The technology allows shooting up to a maximum ISO of 25600.
The Lumix DMC-G7 integrates Wi-Fi connectivity for a flexible shooting experience and fast and easy image sharing. It is easy to connect the camera to a smartphone or tablet, allowing you to post images and clips to social media or email them to friends and family almost as soon as they’ve been recorded. Alternatively you can use your mobile device as a remote control for the camera, changing settings such as focus, aperture, shutter speed and ISO, before triggering the shutter release.
