Accustomed to renewing its Lumix Gs every year, or even a little less, Panasonic has calmed down a bit and took the time to breathe and think before replacing the good (but banal) Lumix G6 with a G7. Much good it took: by taking over many attributes of the big brother GH4, darling of many videographers, the Lumix G7 pulls up a G line that was beginning to run out of steam and lose interest. The Lumix Gs are dead, long live the Lumix G7, 4K video, Oled viewfinders and touch screens. But besides, what is in this Lumix G7?
Panasonic Lumix G7
Introductory price €699
Let’s not be afraid of words: with its Lumix G7, Panasonic has a practically perfect hybrid for the greatest number. Well built, relatively compact and light, very fast, capable of very beautiful images, gifted in video (it films in 4K/UHD!), highly customizable. His flaw? He wants to do everything well so much that sometimes he does a little too much…
- Comfortable Oled viewfinder.
- Adjustable and multitouch screen.
- Pleasant grip and double wheel system.
- Excellent responsiveness in all circumstances.
- Image quality up to ISO 3200.
- Great customization possibilities.
- UHD video.
- Lots of video settings.
- Good battery life (500 views) and supplied with a mains charger.
- Still too many buttons everywhere.
- Menus sometimes too complex.
- No headphone jack.
- Sensor not stabilized.
Panasonic delivers a hybrid that wants to position itself on all fronts. Photo, video, experts, beginner, personalization or automation, there is something for everyone. The Lumix G90 drives the point home by offering a tropicalized finish and a relatively small size. If the case by its versatility is a very good device, the video quality could still have been better. However, few users will be able to find a crippling lack in the Lumix G90. Could this be the perfect recipe?
