Design and features

It has been a few years since Panasonic launched the GX1, a camera that straddled the middle ground between the video-targeted GH line and the beginner GF range. Skipping a few model numbers along the way, we now have the GX7 which is the closest to a rangefinder-style camera the company has had in quite some time.

The body itself is not too dissimilar to the GX1, except this time it has a protruding, ergonomic grip and plenty of customisable options including four function buttons. A magnesium alloy frame promises durability, while also being relatively lightweight for street photography. Two dials for controlling exposure options sit on the top and rear of the device. The GX7 feels very comfortable to use and sits well in the hand, weighing 402 grams as body only or 512 grams when coupled with the kit 14-42mm lens.
