The LUMIX GF7 enables hands-free selfies via a new shutter mode that takes pictures when faces are in close proximity or when your face is once covered with a waving hand. In combination with the camera’s beauty functions, the result is more attractive portraits.
What’s more the compact, stylish 12-32mm Kit Lens’ 24mm* equivalent wide-angle setting allows everyone to fit in the frame.

The Ultimate in Ease of Use for Any Photographer
Beginner Friendly Features
The LUMIX GF7 delivers stress free shooting. Pinpoint a subject with a touch of the screen and let the camera determine the correct focus and exposure, or tap it to fire the shutter. Optimised settings including three new recording modes and a Scene Guide provide the best results.
If a recording setting is changed accidentally, pressing a new Rec. Setting Reset button will restore the camera to its factory settings.
Beautiful Results From Each and Every Frame
Superb Picture Quality and Sophisticated Design
The LUMIX GF7’s stylish looks and image quality are without compromise. While maintaining a smaller form factor to ensure portability, it incorporates a large Digital Live Mos Sensor based on the Micro Four Thirds system standard, working in tandem with a high performance Venus Engine. This enables high precision, high-speed auto focus to capture even very fleeting moments.
Unwire Your Creativity with Wi-Fi®
Wireless Connection for Simpler Image Sharing
Thanks to the free-to-download Panasonic Image App, there is the ability to connect the LUMIX GF7 directly to your smartphone or tablet, a simple task that doesn’t require the inputting of a password. As well as being able to share images with family and friends, your smartphone or tablet can also be used as a remote shutter release for the camera, extending creative choice.
Buddy Shutter / Face Shutter
Introducing two new means for simpler selfies. Buddy Shutter mode works when two people bring their faces closer together; Face Shutter mode is activated merely by covering your face with a waving hand.
Dual Shutter Button
On the LUMIX GF7 the Fn1 (function) button provides an extra means of firing the shutter when holding the camera in just your left or right hand for selfie.
Now Beauty Really is More Than Skin Deep
Shooting up close and personal to anyone can sometimes produce unflattering results. However the LUMIX GF7 cleverly offers up a triple whammy of beautifying functions – all combining to deliver more attractive selfies.
For example, Soft Skin mode makes skin look smoother, a Defocusing option subtly softens the area surrounding the face for added visual impact, while the Slimming option does exactly what its name suggests…
12-32mm Kit Lens with 24mm Wide-angle Capability
When combined with the LUMIX GF7 camera body, the 12-32mm Kit Lens proves itself perfect for capturing selfies with groups of friends. At its widest 24mm equivalent setting the lens’ angle of view is approximately 136% larger than that of a 28mm lens*.
It’s also a great tool for commemorative photos on your travels – when, additionally, the smaller overall form factor of camera body plus lens comes in very handy.

Compact, Stylish Design to Match Any Occasion
Dramatically downsized compared with previous models, the LUMIX GF7 features a sleek, stylish profile with a design that echoes classic camera styles. Offering a high level of mobility and operability for daily use, it still cleverly manages to include a built-in flash. And, whether you’re shooting in the city or enjoying the countryside, the camera’s fashionable colours are a perfect complement, regardless of gender.
180° Tiltable Monitor is as Flexible as You Are
Dynamic, artistic low-angle shots are easily achievable thanks to a monitor that tilts approximately 180°. External reflections are suppressed by the In Cell Touch LCD, which, together with a high resolution of approximately 1,040k dots and precise colour reproduction, provides greater visibility under bright conditions. In addition, the bright LCD provides a consistent wide angle of view while reducing power consumption.
Optimum Results Every Time via Scene Guides
The LUMIX GF7’s mode dial provides convenient fast access to three frequently used options in Portrait, Child and Scenery, so each is ready when you need them. In combination with the camera’s Scene Guides, there are 23 pre-optimised presets in all. Simply select the one that most closely matches your shooting scenario and let the camera automatically select the ideal settings to deliver the best result.
Rec. Setting Reset Button
The LUMIX GF7 features a new reset button at the back. Should a wrong recording setting be accidentally selected, all functions can be quickly returned to the factory default.
iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode
The iA mode is your virtual assistant, letting you create beautiful pictures when pointing and shooting. The iA Plus mode meanwhile allows the photographer to tweak exposure, white balance and defocus background areas.
A Superb Performance Free From Compromise
The new LUMIX GF7’s major appeal is its best of both worlds blend of compact camera profile yet big imaging performance. A large 16 megapixels Digital Live Mos Sensor offers high resolution and high sensitivity picture recording with less image noise. Working in conjunction with the Venus Engine, clear, smooth nighttime images are consistently achievable, even up and including the maximum ISO25600 setting.
Fast and Accurate AF
The Contrast AF system of the LUMIX GF7 is fast yet accurate, exchanging digital signals
between camera and lens at a maximum 240 fps. Also offered are high-speed burst shooting at 5.8 fps at 16 megapixels plus a maximum 40 fps with electronic shutter.
Low Light AF
Low Light AF makes it possible to focus subjects more precisely in -4EV low light situations, like a starry sky with no other light source.
Via a wide variety of filter effects, Creative Control adds artistic expression to photos and
videos. Creative Panorama function allows you to create dynamic vertical/ horizontal panoramic photos just by panning the camera.
This single setting switches shutter operation from mechanical to electronic and turns off
the AF sound, while suppressing the emission of the AF assist lamp and flash.
1920 x 1080p Full-HD Video in AVCHD / MP4
For shooting video, the LUMIX GF7 allows you to be as expressive as you want. The camera boasts Full HD 1920x1080 60p (for NTSC area)/ 50p (for PAL area) high quality recording in AVCHD Progressive and MP4 formats with stereo sound, ensuring smooth results. Full time AF and AF tracking is as accessible in video mode as it is in stills mode. Plus there is 24p video with maximum 24MB/sec bit rate for those wanting a classic cinema look.
Snap Movie Mode
Record videos within a set time period (2, 4, 6 or 8 secs) and use additional focusing and fade effects. Panasonic Image App lets you rearrange videos in any order, add music and share edited versions.
Time Lapse Shooting
Set the camera up and leave it to record stars shifting in the night sky, clouds racing past or flowers blooming. Images shot at intervals are combined in camera to create time-lapse videos.
Easy Wi-Fi® Connection to Smartphone
Connecting the camera to any smartphone/ tablet is quick and easy with a press of the Fn1/Wi-Fi* button or by reading the QR code. Keeping things simple, even the password input can be skipped. Upon activating the Panasonic Image App a guide menu is displayed for ease of use, ensuring that it is quicker than ever to share an image.
* The Fn1/Wi-Fi button works as a shutter button when the rear monitor is flipped up in Self-shot mode.
Achieve the Impossible with Jump Snap
The LUMIX GF7 newly integrates a Jump Snap function. This option allows users to photograph themselves when jumping, using their smartphone as a remote control for the camera, in order for the resulting image to make it appear as if they are floating in mid air. Whether the smartphone is in your hand or pocket, it detects the highest point of your jump and fires the camera shutter at that point. The impossible made possible.
Easy Image Sharing with Wi-Fi®
You’ve taken some great images with the LUMIX GF7; now you want to show them off. You can instantly upload and share your pictures on social media using the Panasonic Image App on a smartphone or tablet. Sharing shots when browsing on the camera is also quicker thanks to a new direct uploading capability.
Location information can be tagged to the image by utilising the GPS log of a smartphone / tablet.
