4K Video and 4K Photo —
Capture the Perfect Moment
Special moments you want to remember can occur at any time and
should be captured in the best resolution possible. Now Panasonic's 4K
technology is available for everyone. With the introduction of the new
DMC-G7KGC, you will be able to record video in 4K (up to QFHD: 3840 x
2160 pixels, 25 fps, 100Mbit/s).
Furthermore, with the 4K Photo feature, you can extract the perfect frame
out of a 4K video (30 frames per second) sequence easily on the camera
and save it as an 8 megapixel still image.
The hybrid DMC-G7KGC frees your creativity for both video and photo.
Focus on the Moment
Be ready to grab the next sudden shutter opportunity. Adding
Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology* to
Contrast AF has achieved both higher precision and greater
speed at approximately 0,07 seconds**. This combines with
approximately 200% AF Tracking performance***, 8 frames
per second burst shooting in full resolution, and UHS-II SDXC
Memory Card compatibility to turn those once-in-a-lifetime
moments into memories that last forever.
* Contrast AF with DFD technology works only with Panasonic Micro Four
** In AFS, with the H-FS14140.

Everything in the Right Place
Not only does the DMC-G7KGC feature a stylish, sophisticated body and a snug, hand-fitting
grip, it also provides an intuitive level of operation. The Live View Finder (LVF) helps you
to frame your images even under bright sunlight conditions, and the body design allows
you to freely customize settings. The front/rear dials control the main aperture and shutter
speed settings, while easily switching to handle temporary WB and ISO adjustments.
Settings can also be assigned to six function buttons.* In addition, the 4K Photo mode can
quickly be active by using the 4K Photo feature on the drive mode dial.
* Six buttons on the body and five buttons on the menu.
4K Video — More Details Than Full HD
Whether you are watching movies or editing videos, 4K
delivers a far more intense viewing experience than you have
seen before. Its native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels is
four times larger than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level
of detail. Even if you export your footage filmed in 4K to a Full
HD TV, the video files will have even better definition and
crisper details than those filmed in Full HD.
・When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3.
4K Photo — Capture the Perfect Moment
Using the high resolution of 4K, Panasonic DMC-G7KGC camera introduces the new 4K
Photo function which allows you to extract individual frames from a video sequence
(filmed at 30 frames per second) to capture those magical moments that only occur at a
split second. With 4K Photo you can always be assured that you have the freedom to
decide on your very own 'perfect moment'.
4K Photo Modes – Free Your Creativity
The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes, all allowing
you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames per
This is a function that you can use more like using photo burst shooting
mode. The camera keeps on shooting 8 megapixel images at ultra high
burst rate as long as the shutter button is pressed.
4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop)
This function is the standard 4K Photo function where you are able to
record a 4K movie to extract any frame as an 8 megapixel image later.
You can relax and wait for the moment to come.
The specialty of the '4K Pre-Burst' mode is that the camera starts
recording a 4K video sequence even one second before/after you press
the shutter button. This allows you to capture an unpredictable moment
which happens much faster than you are able to react. You can get extra
60 images to choose the best from.
High Speed Auto-Focusing
with DFD Technology
Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to Panasonic's Depth From Defocus (DFD)
Auto Focus (AF) technology*. The DMC-G7KGC features this brand new technology instantly
calculating the distance between the items inside the frame and drives the focus of the
lens in one fast, continuous movement. This new system results in AF speeds up to 0,07
seconds** and a burst shooting speed with AFC of 6 frames per second. It also increases
the stability of continuous focusing when shooting video.
* Contrast AF with DFD technology works only with Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lenses.
** In AFS, with the H-FS14140.
Fast and Precise AF Tracking
With the new algorithm of AF Tracking, not only the colour
but also the size and motion vector of the target are
recognized, enabling the camera to lock on the subject even
more securely. The result is the AF tracking performance of
approximately 200% or greater which refrains the camera
from losing the subject*.

Focusing in Low Light Conditions
— Star Light AF
Low Light AF makes it possible to focus subjects more precisely in -4EV
low light situations,like moonlight with no other light source.
Furthermore, the DMC-G7KGC newly integrates the Starlight AF to let you
shoot a star in the night sky with auto focus by accurate calculation of the
contrast value in a smaller AF zone.
High Image Quality
Even in Low Light Conditions
The 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor in combination with the Venus
Engine provides both: high quality image capture and high speed signal
processing. The superior noise reduction system enables crisp images
even in low light conditions up to ISO 25,600.
The Venus Engine also excels in diffraction compensation to make
images crisp and clear even when shooting with a small aperture.
Perfect Sight and Framing
The DMC-G7KGC comes with a high-resolution (2,360k-dot) OLED Live View Finder which allows high visibility thanks to a 10,000:1 contrast and perfect framing even
under direct sunlight conditions. Also with all your settings displayed right in front of your eye, your pictures will always come out exactly how you want them to.
A rear monitor also features higher visibility even for sunny outdoor shooting. And, the tilt/swivel touch-display gives you the freedom to find unusual perspectives while
maintaining easy operation and full image control.
To give the most precise focus control possible, the DMC-G7KGC has a manual focus peaking
function, that shows you which area is in focus and how far the depth of field extends. Areas
in focus are displayed on the screen in colour to make sure you have the area you want
perfectly sharp and in-focus everytime.
There are many situations when you want your camera to be absolutely silent such as
taking pictures of animals or at a classic concert. When using the electronic shutter of
LUMIX G Cameras, the mirrorless system is considered noiseless thanks to the fast and
silent AF-System in the lenses and the lack of shutter noise. Silent shooting with LUMIX G
opens areas of photography that are out of reach for other photographers.
Unwire Your Creativity via Wi-Fi®
The connectivity features of DMC-G7KGC expand the usability of your
camera in many ways.
The camera can be controlled by using the 'Panasonic Image App' on
your smartphone or tablet device enabling you to view the image, set the
focus, release the shutter from a distance or review photographs on the
large screen of your tablet. Or even share your images on social medias.
Share your favourite moments easily by drag-and-drop on social medias using on your smartphone or tablet.
The DMC-G7KGC knows exactly where it is by using the GPS log/tag of your
smartphone or tablet. By geotagging your images, you will be able to have
the information where the picture was taken automatically attached to the
for Flexible Usage
To offer more flexible usage, the DMC-G7KGC can be
combined with the DMW-FL580L External Flash, the
DMW-MS2 Stereo/Shotgun Microphone and many other
The DMC-G7KGC is also compatible with the latest high performance BUS Class UHS-I/UHS-II SDXC/SDHC memory cards which are capable of storing all of your high-resolution 4K videos, 4K Photos and burst shooting pictures in RAW files.
