    Near Perfection

    |
    Posted .

    After doing a fair amount of research (both by camera enthusiasts at BestBuy and from youtube bloggers) I decided it was time to trade in my Nikon 1 J5 towards the G7. I am quite happy with the transition. The camera has a little bit of a learning curve (many functions and customization). Once you nail down what buttons are what, setting up the shot through the electronic viewfinder is a dream. The touchscreen is super fast and responsive. My primary use is videography and night time photography where my previous camera struggled. The G7 does super well in various conditions and I really enjoy its size - just small enough for basic portability, and big enough to do force you to frame your shots. I did get a mic attachment and several magnifier attachments to do macro nature photography. While the body is mostly plastic, the form factor is lightweight yet durable that it strikes a good balance in quality confidence. I've attached a couple of test shots I took.

    Remarkable quality and features for its size

    Ease of use, For video, Picture quality

    My other camera is a Canon 6d with a 24-105mm L lens, so I have a goos basis for comparison. The image quality is truly outstanding, given the size of the sensor. The things you can do with this camera are amazing. Video is, of course, excellent. It is kind of a perfect grab-n-go alternative to my Canon. Also, it is very easy to use alternative lenses. Very satisfied. By the way, I returned a Sony A6000 because I could never warm up to it. I think that the Sony cameras are very overpriced given the quality and features they offer. Trendy, for sure, but way overrated and over priced.

    This camera shoots better videos than pictures! I still like the pictures. They’re great but the video are awesome! And you can pass them via Bluetooth! It’s worth it even though it’s kind of a old camera now but definitely worth the money. I left a sample pic. I am new with taking pictures.

    Best camera for photographing children and action!

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    4k video, For video, Picture quality

    “I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Panasonic. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” I recently received a Panasonic LUMIX G7 camera and while I'm still getting comfortable with it, I already know I love it! The 4K feature is key for capturing the good stuff, those quick moments where smile are biggest, eyes are brightest and time has really stood still. The first time I used the camera, I wasn't familiar with how to use the 4K feature. But I loved the photos that I took just the same. The camera is lightweight and easy to take with you on whatever adventures you are setting out on. It's much less intrusive than when I bring my big DSLR camera. It is now the only camera I will take with me on a trip or even just heading out on an outing with my kids. And then I learned a little more about the 4K mode. I'm hooked! Shooting in 4K felt a little odd for me since I'm used to shooting the moment with a click of the shutter. Since we were at the beach, and the kids were playing in the water, I decided to try out the 4K Start/Stop mode. What this means is that you are basically taking short videos where you can then extract the perfect image after the fact! As I sat down with my camera once we got home from that trip, and really started to go through the footage, it became clear that this is THE way to shoot when you are taking picture of active children. I got some amazing shots of the kids in the waves that I would never have gotten in a regular mode. To be able to scroll through these videos, frame by frame, with the touch screen monitor is awesome. I was able to save some truly special moments captured this way. The fact that this camera has wifi and you can share you photos immediately is too cool and I'm beyond excited to play around with the Panasonic Image App which means I can control the camera from my phone! This technology is truly changing photography and how moms capture their kids!

    Favorite Camera for Action Shots

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    For video, Picture quality

    I received a Panasonic LUMIX G7 camera. All opinions are my own. I've been using a traditional DSLR for the last couple of years now. The Lumix G7 technology is entirely new to me, and at first I was a little bit intimidated by all of the options and having to learn new technology. After a few weeks with this camera, I still feel like I am just scraping the surface of what it can do! I reach for this camera when I want to take action shots of the kids. The 4K mode allows you to take several seconds (or up to 30 minutes) of video. You can break the video down into about 30 frames per second, and pull any of those images from the video without losing any quality. So, I can get a little video of my child jumping and then look at every frame and pick the ones that catch that exact moment I was looking for - which makes for some seriously amazing photos! Also super handy is the Panasonic app that allows you to connect your device to the camera and download the photos of your choice directly to your phone. This makes it super easy to share your pictures online, because you don't need to go through the whole process of downloading them all on to you computer before you can share them (although I have done that, too, for editing purposes). This camera is exciting - it takes my photography to another level and really lets me capture movement in a new way.

    A jewel of a camera. Love the pics, very good images, love the easy wi-fi, very nice. Also bougt seperately the 45-150 mm zoom under $200, perfect match for the camera. Very happy would buy again. Still learning the video, but a friend has one and says it is very good. A bargain at the sale price.

    THE Must Have Camera for Moms

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    4k video, For video, Picture quality

    I received a Panasonic LUMIX G7 camera. All opinions are my own. I'll admit when I first saw the Panasonic LUMIX G7 camera, I was intimidated. I am comfortable with my DSLR, but it's so heavy and inconvenient to carry around every day. I have my phone, but I was continually missing great photos of my children because they are constantly in motion. The Panasonic LUMIX G7 allows me to capture just the right moment with the 4K feature. Don't know what that is? It's awesome! The camera basically takes a video, and allows you to choose which still from the video you want to save. You save it right on the camera with the touchscreen. It's unlike anything I have ever seen before! You can then send the pictures to your phone via wi-fi and an app from Panasonic. From there you can upload them to your phone and share across social media. As a mom, it's great. As a blogger, it's essential. I LOVE this camera! If you are looking for a lightweight camera that allows you to capture incredible moments even with constantly moving children, and that's easy to share photos, look no further. This is the camera you've been looking for.

    Such A Amazing 4K Video Camera For The Price!

    4k video, For video, Picture quality
    Cons mentioned:
    Performance

    everything about this camera is out there on the internet so theres no need for me to explain it in detail in specs wise. but from my personal experience while using it, the g7 Blew my mind in overall quality and performance that i got for what ive paid for it. it was on sale for such a even great price! i have made a vlog using the g7 and uploaded it on youtube if you are curious about the video quality. the video is amazing although you wont get any professional features like the GH5 but for casual user like my self, this camera should be more than enough! Now since i didnt really play around too much with the photo performance i cannot really tell if the g7 is a great camera for pictures or not but ive shot some pictures with it and i was pretty happy with the result. i tried manual then auto both resulting in good pictures as is without post editing. now the cons about this camera to me are only the build quality and the pretty slow auto fucusing when shooting video, but those are not enough reasons for me to not giving this camera 5 star. they say you get what you pay for but for me, i got more then what ive paid for this little amazing camera to be honest. not too long after i purchased the g85 came out! so unfortunatelly i had to exchange it with the g85 ( Thank you best buy for the hassle free return policy that cannot be beat!!) just because of its 5 axis in body stabilization which is AMAZING! Well Now thats going to be another review i suppose!LOL If you can find this camera for a discounted price or on sale and you are looking for your very first camera for mainly video rather than photos get this! if you care so much more about photo than video, well maybe this camera is not for you look for canon or nikon or even sony cameras. good luck and have a great day!

    Fantastic for everyday picture taking.

    Pros mentioned:

    Cons mentioned:
    Battery

    This camera makes me want to shoot more pictures more often! It's small and compact yet easy to hold and grip with confidence. It is very light and a bit plastic yet robust and not like a toy at all. Micro 4/3 comes with challenges such as finding a wide enough lens in order to deal with the crop factor. I was able to find a fairly inexpensive 9mm Olympus lens (which seems like a toy) and that becomes a 18mm equivalent as on a full frame sensor camera. Being a mirrorless camera makes it able to adapt many lens types such as old manual Canon FD lenses. Images can look super cool and with a wide open aperture, you can get some very nice "boke" as a result of shallow depth of field. The kit lens does perform well and yes, the auto focus is not super quick like the new Sony cameras. I wouldn't use this to film fast moving subjects or sport events. It does shoot 4K and the images are stunning! The video is very crisp and the color is pleasing. It doesn't have the magenta tint Sony cameras seem to have. It doesn't have the golden richness of the Canon's either. Panasonic is in a nice place in the middle. Of course you can change things in the edit, but it's nice having great color right out of the camera. There are some excellent guides out there that will help you set the camera for "filming" video. This thing is a brilliant little 4K camera that's very affordable compared to its big brothers (G4 and G5, G5s, and G9). May not have all the features as they do but at this price point, it pack a pretty considerable punch with light weight and wide range of adaptability, the G7 is not only super for video but awesome for on-the-go picture taking. The swivel monitor swings out and can be tilted in many directions. So selfies or vlogging is easier than with most other cameras. There a is a con: the battery door. It's on the bottom and can be difficult to place on a tripod because the plate can cover and block the door. Also the SD card is in the same compartment as the battery instead of on the side. This can be cumbersome to switch out a card or battery. Despite the battery door, I love this camera and it just makes picture and video taking more of a joy than any other digital camera I've ever had. Pleasure to use!

    “I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Panasonic. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” Calling all Moms! This is going to be your favorite camera of all time. If you are used to getting blurry pics of your kids or missing the best shots, then you have to try this camera! I have been a long time Nikon user so it did take a little time to get used to the new settings. Overall I think it's very user friendly. It has so many neat features that my Nikon does not have. So far I love it! I can't get over how light weight the camera is. It's so easy to bring this in my diaper bag or purse and it does not take up a lot of room. My daughter is a playing soccer and I can't wait to take more pics of her playing. With the burst shooting, I'll be able to take some awesome action shots. So far my favorite feature is the camera app you can get to easily share pictures fast! No more waiting on pics to download to your computer.

    Still learning everything about this camera. I do like that it is lightweight. Just wish I knew more about how to get some of the features to work better. For example, if there is a button to zoom in or out on the camera. Or which version to use for nighttime. I will need to read the manual.

    After spending what seemed like Months(Which it did take me) I FINALLY came to getting the Panasonic Lumix G7 Mirrorless Camera because it has an AMAZING 4K Capability with Full swivel Screen and Touch and comes with a 14-42mm Lens which isn't too bad and I'm planing on getting the 45-150mm Len's for $150.

    Before I bought this camera I did tons of research on a Sony point and shoot because i'm starting a youtube vlog. So I got the camera, ended up bringing it right back to the store :( I was recommended to the best camera for filming videos plus amazing photo quality when I returned. I am so happy that I bought this camera! I can so much more with the Panasonic Vs Sony Cyber shot!

    My daughter has gotten into video and photography through a video program at her school. I bought this camera based on the features and price. I could have bought something a little more advanced for about the same money used, but since it was a birthday gift I wanted to give her something new. So far this camera has lived up to our expectations and she's very happy with it. Dad did good!
