The Tale Of The Mirrorless Camera

Finally, a mirrorless camera that puts all others to shame

The Tale Of The Mirrorless Camera

It’s 4K footage has a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution at 30/24 frames per second and 100 Mbps, and it also has Full HD 1080 pixel resolution at 60 frames per second. You can also easily extract an 8 megapixel single frame image from the 4K video as well.

He’s the new kid on the block, but he is also a show-stopper. This month has been the month of mirrorless cameras. Olympus released the E-M5 Mark II, Nikon the 1 J5, and Fujifilm debuted the X-T10. And where all these new mirrorless cameras were unique and lovely in their own right, Panasonic’s brand new G7 has shut the competition down.

Like most of its competitors (except the 1 J5), the G7 also sports 16 megapixel sensor, and it has a  standard ISO range of 100 to 25,600 and it can shoot up to 8 frames per second for full resolution images, and manages to hit 13 frames during shooting RAW - all of which is pretty mid-range.

But really, what makes this camera THE mirrorless camera is that yes, all the other mirrorless cameras have those specs too. But the G7 has 4K video recording. One of the first in the mirrorless line-up, the G7 takes its stand as a formidable competitor against all other mid-range mirrorless cameras.

Another super cool video feature is the shutter button, which allows the start and stop of recording in pre-burst mode, which allows initiates 4K video sequence for a second before and after the pre-burst mode is pressed, so that there is an additional 60 extra images available.

The OLED electronic viewfinder has 2.36 million dots, which guarantees deep blacks and bright colors, and the three-inch free-angle LCD screen has a bit more than 1 million dots.

It also has the ability to shoot time lapse videos, and has Low Light Autofocus for -4EV low light conditions, and Starlight Autofocus which allows you to shoot the stars.

This bad boy rolls out later in June starting at US $800.
