Over the past couple of days we have seen leaked photos and specifications of Panasonic’s Lumix GX7 camera ahead of its announcement. In case you might not have believed the rumors and leaks, Panasonic has since stepped forward and officially announce the camera. Given the multitude of leaks, there’s really not much that Panasonic announced that surprised us, but at least we now know that the specs are official.
For those wondering what they might be able to expect from the Lumix GX7, this is a Micro Four Thirds camera from Panasonic that will sport a 16MP sensor. It will feature a magnesium alloy body that will make it more sturdy and durable, and will also feature in-body stabilization and a shutter speed of 1/8000, ISO of up to 25,600, and will also be able to record videos at Full HD 1080p quality at 60fps.
The GX7 will also sport a 16:9 vertically tiltable Live View Finder that will be able to begin the autofocus when it detects an eye has been placed onto it, a touchscreen LCD display that can also be tilted up to 80-degrees, along with WiFi and NFC connectivity. The Panasonic Lumix GX7 is expected to be made available in the US this November and will be priced at $1,100 with the 14-42mm kit lens, and $1,000 for just the body-only. [Press release]
