(FT5) Tested: Panasonic GX7 new sensor is the best MFT sensor to date.

Share

UPDATE: The image of the GX7 can be seen at Postimg and Tinypic.

A top source had the chance to test the GX7. He said the image quality of the sensor beats any other MFT camera to date…at any ISO! The sensor isn’t multi-aspect and not organic (that sensor will arrive late 2014). It has 16 MP effective pixels. Actually Panasonic managed to increase the single pixel area and Micro-lenses have been optimized. Also the Venus engine has been improved. And as I told you yesterday the video quality is the same of the GH3. Sounds all great!

(FT5) First image of the new Panasonic GX7!

Share

UPDATE: The image of the GX7 can be seen at Postimg and Tinypic.

 

This is the first image of the brand new Panasonic GX7 that will be announced in August! As you see Panasonic goal was to revive the glorious Four Thirds L1 camera (here on eBay). And some of you also saw a touch of Fuji X-M1 (very similar back!) on the new GX7. And this could not be casual because Fuji and Panasonic are working together on the new organic sensor tech. That said here are the specs:

– The leaked document says it’s 16Megapixel but I heard it’s 18MP. This makes me think the sensor may be multiaspect. Which means 18 megapixel sensor with 16 megapixels effective resolution (like it was on the GH2!).
– It has a Magnesium body and comes in full black or black-silver.
– It has an on sensor stabilization (first ever for Pana).
– Same video quality as the GH3
– Shutter speed up to 1/8000
– 5fps (4fps with continuous A)
– it can focus also in very dark conditions
– Tiltable 2,76 Million Dot EVF
– Tiltable 3 inch LCD (1,04 Million dots)
– Integrated WiFi and NFC
– Focus peaking
– Stereo Mic
– Shipment in September
– Body only price 1.000 Euro
– There will be two kit version. One with 14-42 and one with 20mm lens.

So, do you like the new Panasonic? Me…yes!

Thanks Harry and Ulrich!!!
