Panasonic DMC-GF7KK Mirrorless Digital Camera (DSLM) with 12-32 mm Kit Lens
This entry level interchangeable lens camera from Panasonic offers an excellent option for photographers looking primarily to upgrade from a smartphone or point-and-shoot camera. An update to the previous DMC-GF6, the DMC-GF7 incorporates much of the new features and technology seen in the Panasonic DMC-GM5. This includes better burst shooting performance at five fps, updated video capabilities, and the addition of Panasonic’s Light Speed autofocus system.
The DMC-GF7 offers a 16 megapixel sensor with Panasonic’s Venus Engine Processor, and demonstrates fast performance, especially on start up. The camera uses a tilting touchscreen LCD which allows for easier selfie taking; there’s even a face shutter feature which takes the photo when you wave your hand in front of your face and buddy shutter when the camera detects two faces in proximity to each other. This camera offers plenty of additional modes/filters to choose from, and of course includes WiFi and NFC connectivity.
The entire design of the camera has been improved, making it lighter and more compact than its predecessor; however, it has unfortunately abandoned the grip in the process as well as lacking a hot shoe. On the other hand, the DMC-GF7 does include a built-in pop-up flash, performance is good even in low light, and HD video recording is included. Overall, the Panasonic DMC-GF7 is an excellent compact camera that serves the needs of entry level photographers well.
