The image quality is excellent and the viewfinder makes me feel more at home with the camera - as well as allowing me to compose and shoot in bright sunlight when the rear panel display washes out. The viewfinder image is not full frame nor is it color accurate but that's not the reason I use it - it's an excellent composition aid.
The camera has a lot of automatic processing features that are usually useful but occasionally get in the way of what I'm working for. In manual mode the range of shutter speed is very limited - I have not gotten it to go out past 1 second, so I can't do any of the low-light/heavy filter work that I do with my Nikon. I guess that's my biggest disappointment with the camera.
However, the light weight is a big plus - I can carry this camera around all day w/o bothering my arthritic shoulder - with a 100-300 mm lens it is just a little over a pound, while my Nikon, even without a lens, is in the 6-7 pound range.
Additionally, the unit has a 'silent' setting - turns off all the beeps and the fake mirror 'clack-clack' - it's great to get photos without letting everyone around you know you have an SLR (or even a non-SLR).
Once my shoulder gets fixed (I'm in line for a joint replacement) I expect to go back to the Nikon for most of my work, but the GX7 has earned itself a place in my collection.
This was a $1300 camera when I bought it back in 2013. That price includes the $100.4 Year Camera Accident Protection Plan ($900-1000).
The camera has all these different, unique filters that I absolutely loved. One of them ended up being my signature look on black and white. The video's come out gorgeous and crystal clear. And it's small and light enough to carry anywhere. Plus the old school look is sweet.
So here is the major issues.
Probably after 5/m of purchase the camera started to not come ON when we tried to use it instead this motor clicking sound came on and on the screen it would say "Turn camera off and try again" . Something like that. What really hurt is when you were in the moment trying to catch the moment and your camera basically says "Nope, try me later".
After the first time this happened, it didn't happen again until 2/m later. I was so in love with my cool black and white setting I told my self it would go away and if not I bought the warranty.
Then when we moved to CA and it started happening more I started to get frustrated. Only issue is you never know when it would happen. The camera ended up having a mind or should I say attitude of its own.
So called my warranty company and advised them of the issue. Plus now I have focusing problems as well. Even though you focus manually, or on the screen, your pictures will come out blurry. And you will not be able to tell until you get on the computer when it's bigger.
The warranty company has a middle guy they work with out of NY. You mail them the camera and if they find the same problems they will contact the company and see what they say. They kept the camera for about 3 weeks and told me that they see no problems with it. I explained that it happens but only whenever. Well, they mailed it back to me and said sorry nothing we can help you with. Oh and we can focus the camera just fine they said.
So decided to take a video of the next time this camera had an attitude. Called the NY pp, mailed them back the camera, and emailed the video, plus out of focus pictures. I had to call them bc they never got back to me, after 4 weeks. I even wrote a letter when I send out the camera advising them that I was 7/m pregnant and we really needed this camera working and back soon please.
Even with the video they told me that the company said no because the NY people could not see the problem them self's.
I have over 4 video's now and still no help.
I loved this camera bc of the cool new filters and ext. But there is a major motor functionality issue that the Company does not want to admit to nor fix. And the warranty it's self is a waste of your money bc they are just the middle pp listening to company which tells them no.
So now this little camera just sits in our room waiting to be used. We only use it now if our Canon runs out of battery life. That is if the camera allows us to use it. With the new baby we don't take the chance with it just so we can miss our precious moments.
would of been a cool, artistic and functional camera if made right, and if the mistakes were fixed from the gecko instead covering it up or saying sorry we don't have enough evidence even with your video's.
First I'd like to focus on a few very positive differences in particular that make the GX7 SO much easier and more practical to use in a variety of circumstances than I found the E-M5.
- First, the lack of a hump. I know people say they "don't care" - but really that doesn't make any sense. If you didn't care about the streamlined size, why would you buy a mirrorless camera? Anyway, it's more practical to stick this in a coat pocket than the E-M5, let alone the E-M1 whose hump makes it literally 1 inch (!) taller than the GX7. The GX7 is the most compact/streamlined body with a built-in viewfinder (EVF) in the m43rd's universe (Update: Now the Panasonic GM5).
- About the EVF. Many people have talked up how inferior it is to the Olympus VF-4 (which sits like a mountain atop the E-P5) or that on the E-M1 (which again adds a 1-inch hump). First off, I find it just as visually adequate as the E-M5 no major difference in my eyes (note that I don't wear glasses). But *functionally* it blows the E-M5 away. Why? Because of the autofocus selection mechanism. On the GX7 I position the autofocus point using the touch-screen *while* looking through the EVF. Ingenious (and a little EVF tilting, another great feature, plus using my right eye makes this practical). I can't tell you how many shots I missed on the E-M5 stupidly and painfully slowly trying to move the autofocus point around with the squishy cursor buttons while looking through the EVF. Ridiculous.
- The wifi smart phone control (absent on E-M5). I have been to so many places where I would have loved to have gotten a picture of myself or myself and my travel companions but just couldn't because blind timer pictures are just so difficult. With smartphone control I literally see the screen on my smart-phone, can select the autofocus point, all the shooting settings, etc. Really a game-changer.
- Autofocus mechanisms. The GX7's 1-area autofocus can be shrunk (*permantently* it remembers) to a very small area. Much smaller than on the E-M5. And at any rate, getting a smaller autofocus point on the E-M5 inexplicably required going into a separate "mode" where all of a sudden half the shooting settings become invisible and inoperable until you "set" the autofocus point. Again, I can't tell you how many shots with the E-M5 of eg animals I missed due to either the large autofocus point or having to waste time in the ridiculous autofocus-magnify mode. In addition, the GX7 has pinpoint autofocus which magnifies and is amazingly accurate - nothing like that on the E-M5.
- Manual focusing. When you manual focus the GX7 pops up a magnified picture-in-picture over an area of your choosing (and again it remembers once you set the location and magnification of the PIP). Combined with focus peaking (absent on the E-M5) this is now much faster and more accurate and therefore I use it more, which is the most important thing.
- Video! Video quality is outstanding on the GX7, while the compression codecs and quality on the E-M5 were basically not useful for anything fast-moving, way too many ugly artifacts.
- Silent shutter. Boy do you get some ugly looks at quiet concerts when your mechanical shutter fires off. This is incredibly useful, opens up a whole new range of venues to photography for me, and is completely absent on the E-M5. But note that it only works up to ISO 3200 and is not appropriate for fast-moving subjects.
- Built-in pop-up bounceable flash (the E-M5 has a large, cumbersome add-on flash that, in practice, I never brought with me. Carrying 4 lenses on a 15-mile hike is plenty to keep track of, thank you). No more dark faces outside in the sun. Plus bounceable means I normally don't have to shine it on people's faces indoors (which I dislike so much that I just go no-flash when that's the only option.
- Bright light goodies. ISO 125 (instead of E-M5's 200) and max shutter speed of 1/8000s (instead of E-M5's 1/4000s) let me shoot my PL 25mm f/1.4 at f/1.4 significantly more often than I could before. Less need for an ND filter (which I never carry around anyway) or stopping down when I don't want to.
Finally some neutral/negative comparisons.
- The image quality of the GX7 is essentially identical to all current M43rd's cameras, including the Olympus E-M1, E-P5, and E-M5. There is literally no noticeable difference, end of story.
- The GX7's in-body-stabilization (IBIS), the first on a Panasonic camera, is inferior to the Olympus high-end 5-axis. But many reviews have vastly overstated the useful advantage here. I get roughly 100% success at 1/10s using the 25mm f/1.4. That's just more than enough. Sure, I could go to 2/3s with the E-M5, but how often is that practical? Even leaves blowing in the wind get blurred at that speed!
- The GX7 is not weather-sealed, the E-M5 is. Yet zero of my 6 lenses are weather-sealed...so how is that useful? My E-PL5 is also not weather-sealed, and I've taken it to the jungle. I guess I'm careful.
- The GX7's battery life is not too impressive, the E-M5's was great.
