New Panasonic GX7 Leaks Out

Panasonic GX7

A German magazine has leaked out the new Panasonic Lumix GX7 mirrorless camera. The Micro Four Thirds shooter should feature sensor-based image stabilization (a first for Panasonic) and ship in September 2013.

The leaked specs note a 16MP sensor; however, conflicting reports point to an 18MP sensor. Other comments in the specs suggest it features the same video quality as the Panasonic GH3, which happens to sport a 16MP sensor. Accordingly, I would lean toward the notion that Panasonic will reuse the solid 16.05MP sensor from the GH3 in the upcoming GX7.

Panasonic GX7 Rumored Specs

  • 18 Megapixel sensor (although the leaked document says it’s 16Megapixel)
  • Magnesium body and comes in full black or black-silver.
  • On sensor stabilization (first ever for Panasonic)
  • Same video quality as the GH3
  • Shutter speed up to 1/8000
  • 5fps (4fps with continuous A)
  • Tiltable 2,76 Million Dot EVF
  • Tiltable 3 inch LCD (1,04 Million dots)
  • Integrated Wi-Fi and NFC
  • Focus peaking
  • Stereo Mic
  • Shipment in September
  • Body only price: 1.000 Euro
  • There will be two kit version: one with 14-42 and one with 20mm lens

    I admire the foresight, technical skill and tenacity consistently displayed by Panasonic in developing the Micro Four-third system. The GX7 is unique in offering a viewfinder in a pro-specced compact mirrorless camera, and that, too, an adjustable one. Exemplary, indeed!
