4k video for 800 USD ? Looks quite interesting. It is not equal to the Panasonic GH4 though but still very interesting
The new Panasonic G7 camera is coming. The new camera has a 16 Megapixel Live MOS sensor, 2.36M dots viewfinder, and a Venus Engine 9 image processing system. The camera can record 4K video at 30 or 24 frames per second framerate.
The camera has a fully articulated 1040K Touch screen, Wifi connectivity, and can shoot up to 40 frames per second in high speed mode. Seems Panasonic don’t hold back anything(compare to the competition, but some functions reserved to the GH4). It is interesting for the new Sony a6100 as well. The iso range of the new camera go up to ISO 25,600 setting.
The price of the new camera is 800 USD with the 14-42mm kit lens.
