The P / A / S / M mode lets you enjoy expressive video recording by manually setting aperture and shutter speed.
The touch AF in video recording lets you enjoy professional-like rack focusing. In addition, the newly adopted Touch AE (Auto Exposure) function allows setting focus and exposure at a single touch on the subject displayed on the monitor.
For more practical control over focusing, the DMC-GX7 incorporates Focus Peaking function that shows the peak of focus in MF and AF+MF mode. You can see the peaking of focus while monitoring the subject in live view. It can be set to HIGH/LOW/OFF and the color can also be changed to blue, white or orange according to the color of the shooting scene during live view.
You can take advantage of this function when controlling the camera with smartphone / tablet via Wi-Fi® in both photo / video recording.
The Live View function is advanced digitally making it possible to adjust highlight / shadow separately with the front/rear dial. 3 patterns of settings can be customized in addition to 3 patterns of preset.
Leave the camera to record of stationary observation for subjects such as flowers coming into bloom or scudding cloud. The series of consequent images can be combined in a camera to produce a time lapse video.
The new Stop Motion Animation function enables producing a stop motion (stop frame) video in camera with the pictures that are sequentially shot while moving the object by degrees. This effect makes the object appear as if it is moving by itself.
