Camera enthusiasts will love Panasonic’s latest LUMIX camera range - there is something to suit all types of photographers.
The new DMC-GF7 is a stylish new addition to the LUMIX family with its slim and classic design. You can take it with you everywhere - it fits into a bag or pocket. It is also easy to hold with a stylish textured grip.
Equipped with a 180-degree touch screen monitor, the DMC-GF7 is the perfect companion for shooting exceptional selfies. The 'Self Shot Mode' includes 'Face Shutter' and 'Buddy Shutter' functions which allows you to take shots when the camera is out of hands reach.
Transform your images with the easy-to-use Beauty Modes function - 'Defocussing Mode' sharpens the subject's face and blurs the background and 'Soft Skin' mode brightens skin tones. The DMC-GF7 also offers 22 Creative Filter effects.
For fun group shots, the DMC-GF7 has the 'Jump Snap' feature. The acceleration sensor on a smartphone detects when you jump and sends the information to the camera via Wi-Fi for instant shutter operation.
It captures detailed and sharp images with a 16 megapixel MOS Sensor, Venus Engine and features an advanced auto focus system meaning you'll always capture special moments in sharp focus.
Andrew Reid, Product Manager, LUMIX, Panasonic New Zealand said: "The GF7 is a big leap forwards for the GF series. It's significantly smaller than the GF6, and imaging performance has improved. It's easy to use, and the new tiltable monitor means that everyone can capture picture-perfect selfies whilst having loads of fun."
The DMC-GF7 is available as a single lens or double lens kit.
