Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Review

Panasonic GX7 developed new 16.00-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor that achieves both higher resolution and higher sensitivity image recording with less noise.
The newly integrated 90-degree tiltable LVF (Live View Finder) boasts 2764K-dot equiv. high resolution for more free composition and higher visibility.
The Venus Engine features its advanced noise reduction systems which make it possible to remove large block of noise which was formally hard to detect and helps produce clear, smooth image especially for the nighttime scenery.
