5 Stars By Vincent F. Tsai on 2016-08-11 A lightweight that punches above it's class What a camera you're getting for this price point! The Panasonic G7 is the sixth camera in their G series line, and I have to say they have finally nailed it. This camera sits right in the sweet spot of performance, size, and price. It is considered a mid level camera but can do just about anything the higher end models can. The 16 mp sensor has been refined and provide good high iso performance. RAW files are easy to work with. The headline feature 4K video is top notch although you have limited manual controls for video recording. Speaking of controls, this camera bristles with dials, levers, and buttons. It is a call back to the original G1 and G2 and I love it. Handling is top notch, everything falls into place and all functions are within easy reach for fast access. The grip is superb and I really think this is the best handling camera out there. Auto focus is fast and accurate, but that also depends on the lens. So what's not to like? Not much. The build materials are plastic, but overall build quality is quite good. No in body stabilization, this is a big deal to some. I don't know why, I don't think it is such a big deal. No weather sealing but we are talking about a mid level camera here, if you want to check all the boxes you will be looking at a more expensive camera. Saying that though Pentax manages to weather seal all their bodies so it can be done Panasonic! Overall, for this price point it is tough to find a better camera. Highly recommended! Use the money you save to get some lenses. Because as good a camera body is, it's really the lens that makes the biggest difference. I see a lot of people upgrading to a new camera expecting to be blown away, but always end up disappointed. Simply because they just use the kit lenses the cameras come with. If you couldn't tell I really like this camera. I'm a portrait photographer and you can see a lot of my work on Flickr. Just search my name I guess. Happy shooting!
5 Stars By NSB Julie on 2015-11-18 Fantastic video and surprisingly excellent images! This is my first micro 4/3 camera. I purchased this camera solely for its 4k video capabilities and it does not disappoint. The big surprise was the quality of the photos I was getting with this camera. In many cases, the photographs rival those taken with my Nikon. I am totally in love with this little camera and find myself reaching for it more and more.
I have used this camera to take every kind of image. Portraits, landscapes, astrophotography and wildlife. The Panasonic Lumix does not disappoint! I am still discovering great new features that make this camera even better.
Excellent in low light with minimal noise. Creates outstanding timelapse videos in 4K and 1080P with just a few minor settings. Shoot in RAW! Oh yeah! The rear touch screen is a joy to use and the viewfinder shows you exactly what the image will look like before taking the picture. You can preview all of your image settings live as you make them.
The kit lens performs well and is sure to make anyone happy but this little camera really shines when you put some good glass in front of it. I wanted to use my Nikon glass with this camera and luckily there is an adapter that I seriously consider to be a secret weapon.
The Metabones adapter lets me use all of my Nikon glass with this camera! The image quality is simply outstanding! You do lose most of the auto functions like auto focus and auto aperture with the adapter but with the built in focus peaking system it is super easy to see exactly which parts of the image are in focus. The Metabones Speed Booster XL 0.64x Adapter for Nikon F-Mount Lens to Select Micro truly makes this little camera a solid contender against any entry level DLSR on the market. Let's not forget about the amazing 4k video quality either and again coupled with the Metabones adaptor, the video capabilities are pretty much limitless! This little camera has everything that my more expensive Nikon is missing.
Buy this camera. You will not be disappointed!
5 Stars By Tricia R Karels on 2018-01-11 High quality camera I bought this camera because I sell cars and it's the same camera used by the company that photographs cars for ads. Seems to be a nice camera although I haven't used it much yet. At this point I've been taking a variety of pictures in "auto" mode to see how it performs and very few pictures have been blurry.
5 Stars By Stuffologist on 2017-07-18 A Great Camera Packed With Features Incredible and reliable camera with a ton of features! The 4h filming mode is gorgeous.
I love having the option to use my tablet as a remote monitor when filming. The Panasonic app links easily and reliably.
Highly recommend for beginners looking to create polished hd videos and high res photos.
5 Stars By Terry on 2018-01-07 Best 4k camera for the money! Amazing camera, takes vreat pictures even with the kit lence. If this is your first camera (like me) it will take a while to get used to shooting in manual mode. But if you put it in automatic mode its a breeze. Point and shoot. A lot of noise in dark shots.
3 Stars By BTA-MALL Customer on 2018-01-14 Good all around camera for videos I bought the panasonic lumix g7 for the video capabilities. When i started using it i was very impressed by it. It has a very responsive touchscreen. It also came with a microphone plug in & you can take the screen out so that you can see yourself while recording. I also reccomend it beacuse it can shoot 4k video. The price in this camera is unbelievable for the price. I recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap camera to do videos.
5 Stars By Ryan Savage on 2017-03-27 Beautifully made. Works like a dream and meets all ... Beautifully made. Works like a dream and meets all of my expectations. Wish it was a lit bit more sturdy(made of plastic), but the quality is unmatched for the price.
5 Stars By Joram Bierdeman on 2015-06-20 Beyond my expectations! The G7 is a solid upgrade to the G6 in nearly every aspect. The body feels better in your hands, the buttons and wheels give better feedback, and the layout is far more natural. It is a little bigger and a little heavier than the G6, but you only notice it during a direct comparison. I also was surprised at how much I favor the new angular design, which I feel aids in a more professional look.
The pictures are about the same quality as the G6 but the video is an immense improvement. Even using the kit lens, the 4K video is mesmerizing. The 4K burst photo mode works well but seems more like a gimmick than something I would use every day. *The screenshots I have included were all captured from 4K video.
The battery/SD card flap doesn't open up as easy, lacking the quick spring of the G6. Also, the strap holders are no longer imbedded in the sides of the camera, but rather hang off the sides like earrings (and since I never use a strap, this just gets in my way). Beyond these little complaints, however, there is nothing I dislike about the G7. I have undeniably found my new favorite camera and I am holding onto it for a long time.
5 Stars By laura puentes on 2016-04-30 Love this camera Love this camera. For the money it can't be best. People want to rate this thing along side of cameras twice the price and somehow this thing still competes
4 Stars By David B on 2016-08-04 Excellent HD video and average still images I purchased this camera primarily for its 4K video option. I have used it for both still and video photography and I can highly recommend it for videography. Quality of the still images is not high enough for pro-work but this is a great walk around camera for street photography, family photography, etc. And, with the addition of high quality HD video this is a great everyday or backup camera. Again, if you are looking for high quality still images stay with the higher end Nikon or Cannon DSLR bodies. I would have given this camera 5 stars (for its class) if the still images were better quality.
Cons - Still image quality - Lens construction quality
Pros - 4K HD video quality - Battery life - Size of body
