Extract 'Moments' with 4K Photo
Save those precios times in breathtaking beauty with 4K video, then capture special moments with 4K Photo. This hybrid 4K camera will keep them splendid forever.
4K Video and 4K Photo - Capture the Perfect Moment
The DMC-G7's 4K video recording capabilities allow users to capture stunningly-smooth, high-resolution scenes at an unprecendented speek of 30 fps with 8 Mpx equivalent resolution. Additionally, users can take fleeting photo opportunities within their 4k videos by using three new features - 4K Burst Shooting, 4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) and 4K Preburst. All of these functions enable the user to simply select photos from the 4K video by cropping the desires frame out of the 4K burst file.
Focus on the Moment
Be ready to grab the next sudden shutter opportunity. Adding Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology to Contrast AF has achieved both higher precision and greater speed at approximately 0.07 seconds. This combines with approx. 200% AF Tracking performance, 8 times per second burst shooting in full resolution, and UHS-II-SDCX Memory Card compatibility, to turn those once-in-a-lifetime moments into memories that last forever.
Everything in the Right Place
Not only does the Lumix G7 feature a stylish, sophisticated body and a snug, handfitting grip, it also provides an intuitive level of operation. The Live View Finder (LVF) helps you to frame your images even under bright sunlight conditions, and the body design allows you to freely customize settings. The front/rear dials control the main aperture and shutter speed settings, while easily switching to handle temporary WB and ISO adjustments. Settings can also be assigned to sic function buttons. In addition, the 4K Phot mode can quickly be active by using the 4K Photo feature on the drive mode dial.
4K Video - More Details than Full HD
Whether you are watching movies or editing videos, 4K delivers a far more intense viewing experience then you have seen before. Its native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels os four times larger than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail. Even if you export your footage filmed in 4K to a Full HD TV, the video files will have even better definition and cripser details than those filmed in Full HD.
4K Photo - Capture the Perfect Moment
Using the high resolution of 4K, Panasonic Lumix G7 camera introduces the new 4K Photo function which allows you to extract individual frames from a video sequence to capture those magical moments that only occur at a split second. With 4K Photo you can always be assured that you have the freedom to decide on your vert own perfect moment.
4K Photo Modes - Free Your Creativity
The 4K Photo funcation can be used in three different modes, all allowing you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames per second.
This funcation is similar to photo burst shooting mode where the camera keeps shooting 8 Mpx images at ultra high burst rate, as long as the shutter button is pressed.
4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop)
The standard 4K Photo funcation allows you to record a 4K movie so you can extract any frame as an 8 Mpx image later, so relax and wait for the moment to come.
The 4K "Pre-Burst" mode starts recording a 4K video sequence even one second before/after you press the shutture button. This allows you to capture an unpredictabel moment which can happen much faster than you are able to react, giving you an extra 60 images to choose from.
Post Focus - Select the in-focus area even after shooting
Have you ever imagined that you can set sharp focus on the target subject agter you shot the images? Now you can esily do it with the Post Focus function. The function has been developed based an Panasonic's 4K and high-speed, high-precision DFD auto focus technology. Shoot the image on the spot and save it as you like later - it's a whole new phtographic experince for creatice freedom.
High Speed Auto-Focusing with DFD Technology
Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to Panasonic's DFD Auto Focus technology. The Lumix G7 features this brand new technology that instantly calculates the distance betwenn the items inside the frame and drives the focus of the lens in one fast, continous movement. This new system results in AF speeds up to 0.07 seconds and a burst shooting speed with AFC of 6 frames per second. It also increases the stability of coninous focusing when shooting video.
Fast and Precise AF Tracking
The camera's Pinpoint AF gives users the capabilites to magnify their target area to set an accurate and extremely precise focus. The calculated algorithm of AF Tracking ensures that the colour, size, and motion vector of each subject are recognized and captured even more accurately than ever before.
Focusing in Low Light Conditions - Star Light AF
The Low Light AF feature makes it possible for users to achieve a clear focus on their subject as precisely and quickly as possible, even in extremely low-lit situations. Furthermore, newly integrated Starlight AF allows users to achieve a clear photo of a star in the night sku with auto focus. This can be acheived by an accurate calculation of the contrast valie in each split AF zone.
High Image Quality Even in Low Light Conditions
The 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor in combination with the Venus Engine provides both high quality image capture and high speed signal processing. The superior noise reducation system enables crisp images even in low light conditions up to ISO 25,600.
The Venus Engine vividly improves colour reproduction with an accurate evaluation of each colour - in both saturation and luminosity - allowing the camera to capture exceptionally fast-moving subjects in complete focus.
Perfect Sight and Framing
The display area has been redesigned to include a high-precision OLED that increases the resolution of the display area to 2,360K-dot, with approx. 1.4x / 0.7x magnification and 100% field of view. The redesigned eyecup improves switching the imafe output between the LVF and rear monitor automatically with a built-in sensor on the LVF. The addition of OLED enables the display area to respond at high-speed with minimum lag time, all the while enhancing resolution. Also, the OLED for the LVF boasts 10,000:1 contrast allowing for superior colour reproduction.
