Product information
The black Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7KEB-K Compact System Camera with 14-42 mm Lens is a truly top-flight reflex camera for beginners who're serious about photography.

Advanced image sensor

With 16 megapixels, the GX7 features a digital Live MOS sensor powered by a Venus Engine for enhanced responsiveness and more exciting photography.

Your images will display exceptionally high quality, defined by true-to-life details, crisp edges and vivid colour reproduction. An ISO range of 125 to 25600 gives you unprecedented sensitivity, and there are Auto and Intelligent ISO settings to deal with quick-reaction or difficult situations.

Even in dimly-lit scenarios, you'll achieve great sharpness and accuracy, and the resolution limit is enhanced by the advanced Intelligent D-range Control, which provides stunning tonal gradation with a broader tonal range and precise detail reproduction.

Luscious lens

Capture an exciting range of subjects and unleash your creativity with the 14-42 mm lens included with this Panasonic compact system camera.

Equivalent to a range of 28 to 84 mm in 35 mm format, it's pleasingly versatile. A maximum aperture of f/3.5 lets you achieve good depth of field for compelling subject-background separation, and the lens is also equipped with optical image stabilization for more consistent results.

From portraits and close-ups to dazzling images of scenery, this lens will let you achieve a variety of visual results with which to delight and amaze yourself, friends and family.

Impressive focusing capabilities

The Panasonic GX7 System Camera with 14-42 mm Lens provides exceptionally fast and accurate focusing by transferring image information between lens and sensor at speeds of up to 240 fps. It's ahead of many other mirrorless cameras.

There's a plethora of autofocus functions that lets you capture great photos in a wide range of shooting scenarios. Use Low Light AF to focus more accurately on your subject in -4EV situations, which are the equivalent of a night sky.

Pin-point AF lets you set magnification from 3x to 10z enlargement by 0.1x step, and One-shot AF lets you use AF in manual mode so that you can approximately focus on the subject.

Camera control in the palm of your hand

Combine these features with an impressive fastest shutter speed of 1/8000 sec, and you'll be able to capture slow or fast-moving subjects with equal clarity and expression when you use the DMCGX7-KEBK Compact System Camera and a compatible high-speed lens.

Optical image stabilization has been incorporated in the camera body for better control, allowing you to take more good shots each time you pick up the camera. It's also compatible with Focus Peaking for more accurate performance.

Video capabilities in a CSC

Use your Panasonic Lumix GX7 to record smooth, high quality Full HD 1080p (50Hz) video in AVCHD progressive format, with stereo sound. Output high-quality MP4 files for easy sharing and editing on your computer.

You'll be able to use full-time AF and tracking AF while shooting movies, and with a cinematic 24p video mode with a 24 Mbps bitrate, you'll be able to execute videos that are rich in detail and dynamism. The Live MOS sensor helps to maintain superior quality too.

Features for easier camera use

Take photographs more easily and even achieve new perspectives on scenes using the 3” colour LCD touchscreen, which is tiltable through 90 degrees to facilitate variable positioning for low or high shots.

Access menus, settings and more with its intuitive touch functionality, framing and reviewing shots clearly and accurately on the 1040K-dot screen with a near-100% field of view and colour reproduction.

Because the front panel is directly attached to the LCD screen, there's no containing air layer in between, so the reflection of external light is radically suppressed.

Combine outstanding still and video imaging capabilities with excellent usability and a strong magnesium alloy, full die-cast body, and you have the exciting black Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7KEB-K Compact System Camera with 14-42 mm Lens.

I have been using a Sony Nex 5 for a few years which i found complicated as all features are accessed via the touch screen, also having no view finder made it difficult in bright sunlight.
I swapped for the Lumix GX7 and immediately realised how superior this camera is. Easy to use, great picture quality and easily accessible functions. Point and click if thats what you want but backed up by more functions if you need them.
Fantastic Camera.

superb camera checked out all cameras before purchase have been looking for a camera that takes all my old lenses and a retro camera fantastic time laps photography .camera body stabilization .tilting viewfinder and screen ,HD video ,ISO 200 up to 25600 in manual mode,hot shoe for external flash,Shutter speeds 60 sec to 1/8000 of a second ,8 filters,24 effect filters,Flash sync at 1/320 sec.Auto focus is very fast ,Noise free up to iso 1600 . always shoot in raw + jpeg as to get the best of both worlds. With the Panasonic image app you can control the camera from your Smart phone ie camera on tripod in the garden you sitting having a cup of tea watching the birds in the garden on your phone and taking photos from your phone great.
Battery life could be better but now have six batteries so cheap you should have enough power for any occasion
