Well, Fujifilm isn't the only camera maker with an announcement today. Now it's Panasonic's turn. The Lumix series manufacturer is introducing the G7, a Micro Four Thirds body with a 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor, ISO range of up to 25,600 and a Venus Engine image chip that packs a quad-core CPU for high-speed signal processing. That said, Panasonic is placing significant emphasis on the mirrorless shooter's 4K attributes, like its ability to capture video at 24 and 30 fps at 3,840 x 2,160 resolution (QFHD) -- there's the option for 1080p too, naturally. The company is also touting the Lumix G7's 4K Photo feature, which was revealed last year and is available on the LX100 as well. What this mode lets you do is extract high-resolution photos from 4K, 30 fps videos, with the results being saved at an 8-megapixel equivalent. You'll be able to pick up a kit in mid-June for $800, and that includes a 14-42mm lens to help you get started.
