With a design that reflects classic camera styling, the slim, highly mobile LUMIX GF7 is perfect for special occasions, and everyday use. Whether you’re shooting big city sights, quiet countryside scenes or just hanging out with friends, this is the perfect camera for any photo opportunity.
Performance Without Compromise
With the LUMIX GF7 you get the best of both worlds — a compact, go-anywhere camera plus superior imaging performance in any light. A large, 16MP Digital Live MOS Sensor delivers high-resolution, high-sensitivity images with low image noise. Combined with a powerful Venus engine, the results are consistently clear photos and video up to ISO25600.
Stylish Looks, Better Results in Every Frame
With a smaller profile designed to ensure portability, the LUMIX GF7 incorporates a large Digital Live MOS Sensor (based on the Micro Four Thirds system standard) that works seamlessly with a high-performance Venus engine. Together, they enable a high-precision, high-speed auto focus to capture even the most fleeting moments.
Instant Smartphone Connect
A single press of the camera's Fn1/Wi-Fi* button pairs the GF7 with your smartphone or tablet without the need for passwords. Or connect by displaying the QR code on the camera screen. And when you open the Panasonic Image App, an easy guide menu is displayed to make photo sharing quick and simple.
* The Fn1/Wi-Fi button works as a shutter button when the rear monitor is flipped up in Self-shot mode.
Unwire Your Creativity
With the free, downloadable Panasonic Image App, you can instantly sync the LUMIX GF7 to your smartphone or tablet. And use your smart device to zoom, focus and shoot with the camera from a distance, and upload to social media to share your images with everyone.
Easy Wi-Fi Photo Sharing
With the LUMIX GF7, you can instantly upload and show pictures on all your favorite social media sites using the Panasonic Image App on your smartphone or tablet. Sharing photos spontaneously from the camera is also quick and easy thanks to a new direct uploading capability. And, by utilizing the GPS log on your smartphone/ tablet, tagging and sharing location information is just as convenient.
Multiple Selfie Shutter Options
Buddy and Face Shutters - Simply by bringing two faces together, Buddy Shutter senses and activates the camera shutter for clear, natural images. With Face Shutter a simple wave to the camera activates the shutter.
Dual Shutters - Whether you're left or right-handed, the LUMIX GS7 adds comfort and control to selfie shooting with Dual Shutter buttons.
Get a Jump on Selfies and Group Shots
Picture yourself and your friends floating in mid-air with automatic Jump Snap function. Using WiFi and your smartphone as a remote controller, simply position yourself in the camera's 180° flip-up tiltable LCD monitor and jump. Whether in your hand or pocket, the smartphone detects the highest point of your jump and activates the shutter.
The Next Generation of Selfies is Here
180° Tiltable Lens and New Automatic Shutter Modes. Shoot spontaneous, more natural selfies with modes that take the shot with a wave of the hand, or when faces are in close proximity. Plus, three beauty-effect modes soften skin, slim facial lines and defocus backgrounds for beautiful self-portraits. For group shots a compact 12-32mm kit lens’ with a 24mm* equivalent wide-angle setting comfortably gets everyone in the frame.
* 35mm camera equivalent.
Creative Controls and Effects - Add artistic expression to your photos and videos with wide, creative variety of filter effects. Creative Panorama makes it easy to shoot dynamic vertical/ horizontal panoramic images simply by panning the camera.
Silent Mode - A single setting switches from mechanical to electronic shutter operation and turns off the Auto Focus sound while suppressing emission of the AF assist lamp and flash.
Fast, Accurate Auto Focus
Quickly and precisely, the Contrast AF system exchanges digital signals between camera and lens at a maximum of 240 fps. The LUMIX GF7 also delivers high-speed burst shooting at 5.8 fps at 16MP, plus a maximum 40 fps with electronic shutter.
Low Light Auto Focus - Low Light AF focuses subjects, such as a starry sky with no other light source, more precisely in -4EV low-light situations.
Beauty Modes for Beautiful Close-Ups
Three imaging effects create attractive more expressive close-ups. Soft Skin mode makes skin look brighter and smoother. Slimming mode shapes and sharpens facial lines. And Defocusing mode keeps subjects clearly focused while gently softening the background.
