Dubbed a "street camera" by Panasonic, the GX-7 is a sleek Micro-Four Thirds mirrorless model with plenty of creative control all wrapped up in a retro styled body. An upgrade to the 2011 GX-1, the GX-7 has the same size sensor, but through an upgrade to the photodiodes within the sensor, is said to achieve better saturation and reduced noise. With a built in tiltable viewfinder and LCD screen, the GX-7 is versatile. Video can be taken in full 1080p HD at 24 Mbps using tracking focus and P/A/S/M modes. Panasonic also upgraded with an in-camera stabilization system for use with lenses without a stabilization system. Extra features include wi-fi and Near Field Communication, 22 filter effects, focus peaking and a 3" touchscreen. The kit includes a 14-42 mm lens.
