A Look at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 4K Mirrorless Camera

Earlier today Panasonic announced the newest member of its G series called Lumix DMC-G7. In this quick video Allan Weitz from B&H gives a quick tour of the features of the newly announced model.

The most important feature of the new G7 is of course the new support for 4K video shooting however Panasonic changed and added quite a lot of other things including a redesigned body (much nicer than the G6 if you ask us), new processor and sensor (taken from the LX100), better sensitivity and better AF and a few new shooting modes.
