First 4K G7 video test by NIck Driftwood.


Panasonic Lumix G7 / G70 Launch – 4K – 4KPhoto Modes
from Nick Driftwood on Vimeo.

Nick Driftwood tested the 4K video quality of the new G7 and writes:

Every frame is a 8.3 megapixel A3 print size resolution 4Kphoto. Press pause to try.
NOTE: For 4K quality evaluation it may be better to Download the original file (click download)
A look at the new Panasonic Lumix G7 (G70 Germany) 4K Camera in 4KPhoto Modes 4:3 and 16:9 – 4K grabs are random and deliberate to demonstrate photo quality of every frame. The G7 is a fabulous low-priced 4K shooter with the GH4’s Venus 9 engine and the GX7 sensor. This camera I swear is the perfect accompaniment to the GH4 as a decent B cam or for those requiring 4K on a budget.
The .mp4 4K modes recording is excellent considering there’s no .mov file recording.
I’m very impressed with the 4KPhoto modes which have been enhanced for the G7 and are in some ways more advanced than the GH4 in that you can so much more using the internal processing power of the camera and get excellent results.
The video recording modes also offer the professional gammas Cinelike D and Cinelike V together with an S curve Highlight / Shadow borrowed from the GH4. Not only that, you get the rather cool gizmo feature of Panoramic recording in portrait or landscape, decent Time lapse animation modes, plus, a clean 4:2:2 8-bit HDMI throughput to a TV or hard disk recording/monitor device. Its also lighter and includes improved viewfinder and LCD. Great stuff Panasonic.

The lens is an optimized redesign of their current M42 mount lens which is available on eBay (Click here). The special feature of the lens is that it has a super perfect “soap bubble” bokeh:
