On early August 2013 Panasonic announced the newest member of its GX mirrorless camera family – the GX7. Here at LensVid we covered the launch and the first hands on preview of the camera and now we can also bring you a useful field test.
On this video Chris Niccoll from TheCameraStore took the GX7 into the field and got back pretty pleased with the functionality and performance of the camera (apart from the tilting viewfinder which seemed a bit redundant). take a look and decide for yourselves.
