Expects to ship in September for $1,000 for body alone

Panasonic has unveiled its new Micro Four Thirds camera, effectively confirming details in leaks over the last two weeks. The Lumix GX7 uses a 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor combined with the Venus Engine image processor for Multi-process NR and Detail Reproduction Filter Process, allowing it to have a maximum sensitivity of ISO 25,600.

Using an in-body image stabilizer that is said to be the almost as effective as the Mega OIS used in the company's DSLM lenses, the GX7 offers a silent mode, a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 of a second, a high-seed burst mode of 5 frames per second, and a maximum 40fps when using the electronic view finder. It can also record full HD 1080p video at 60fps in AVCHD Progressive and MP4 with stereo sound.

The EVF itself is a 90-degree tiltable version with a 2764K-dot resolution and 100-percent field of view, and has an eye sensor that automatically turns the EVF on or off, as well as automatically beginning to focus once it is being used. On the rear is an 80-degree tiltable 3-inch touchscreen LCD, while two dials on the front and the back provide various shooting controls. NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity is also included.

The Lumix GX7 will be heading to stores in September, with the Magnesium body-only option costing $1,000, and a version with a 14-42mm kit lens for $1,100.
