Panasonic Lumix GF7

 

The Panasonic Lumix GF7 is a very accessible compact system camera. After the Panasonic GF6 tried to inject a bit of enthusiast appeal into this entry-level CSC series, the 16-megapixel GF7 has its eye on a more mainstream audience.

Handy tilt screen ; Decent image quality ; Good AF

Poor battery life ; Dodgy panorama mode ; Faulty picture preview mode

Panasonic Lumix GF7 review

 

Compact, simple and selfie-centric, this is Panasonic's most mainstream Lumix G camera yet

Absolutely tiny for a system camera ; Very affordable ; Selfie-friendly screen

Temperamental autofocus ; Stripped back feature-wise ; No NFC

Not the finest Lumix G around, but we love its size, simplicity and price

Panasonic Lumix GF7 review: Serious, but not just about selfies

 

Welcome to generation selfie. The Panasonic Lumix GF7 is the follow-up to 2013's GF6, complete with flip-forward screen for taking those delightfully pouty shots. And if that premise hasn't got you hooked then fear not - as the latest in the...

Decent autofocus system and performance, Wi-Fi improvements, small scale, good build considering affordable price point, tilt-angle touchscreen (with selfie position)

Battery life still brutal, panorama mode useless, screen reflections can make exposure hard to assess (no viewfinder possible), Lumix GM1 makes GF’s position more questionable

The Panasonic Lumix GF7 gets plenty right, delivering an affordable, easy-to-use entry-level system that's not trying to reinvent the wheel, but build upon the series' heritage. Solid image quality in good light, a decent autofocus system that's hard...

Panasonic's entry-level mirrorless compact system camera gets an upgrade

Small body ; Touch sensitive screen ; Wi-Fi connectivity

  (Rating Hidden)

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 is Panasonic's latest attempt to give you DSLR controls and photo quality in a slightly smaller compact system camera (CSC), this time with some lovable retro styling. While not as small as the more expensive Lumix DMC-GM5,...

Panasonic Lumix GF7 Review

 

Reviewed, the brand new Panasonic Lumix GF7, the compact, stylish, selfie camera with interchangeable lenses.

Wi-Fi built in - remote operation ; Great image quality ; Panoramic mode ; New design with mode compact body ; High resolution tilting touch-screen ; Fast operation, focus, shot to shot ; Access to a wide range of Micro Four Thirds lenses ; Selfie...

No flash hot-shoe ; 230 shot battery life ; Auto white balance performance could be better ; Would be nice if Wi-Fi supported direct uploads, rather than going via Lumix logon

The Panasonic Lumix GF7 is a fresh update from Panasonic to the entry level compact system camera market, and the camera looks much better than the model it replaces. Not only does it look better, but it is noticeably smaller and the new design should...

Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7

 

Panasonic's latest micro shooter is a powerful camera with beginner-friendly features, including a few selfie modes.

Small, light design with included lens makes the GF7 a suitable upgrade from point-and-shoot cameras. Intelligent Auto and solid scene modes make it simple to use for beginners. Bright, crisp display makes composing easy, even in direct sunlight.

Small light design can be awkward with larger lenses (or if you have large hands). Tiny size means a small battery–buy an extra if you plan to shoot all day. Kit lens isn't great. Encourages selfies.
