Panasonic Lumix GF7 vs Panasonic Lumix GF6 – Comparison

Despite there being the best part of two years between the two cameras, there’s really not a great deal to differentiate between the pair.

Both models feature a 16MP Micro Four Thirds Live MOS sensor and feature a range of simple connectivity, while the pair also sport similarly specified 3in, 1,040k-dot LCD screens.

The screen do differ in one core element however – that on the GF7 falls firmly in to the ‘selfie-screen’ category thanks to a hinging mechanism that allows it to rotate 180-degrees to face the front of the camera.

The GF7 also features more advanced video capture functionality, offering a maximum frame rate of 60p as opposed to 30p on the GF6. The GF7 also sports somewhat of a cosmetic overhaul, with the camera taking on a more ‘retro’ guise in comparison to its modern predecessor.

On the whole, however, the changes are far from revolutionary and if you can do without a ‘selfie screen’ and are happy with 30p video capture the sensible choice is to opt for the GF6 and save some cash.

    The processor from the GF7 is a good reason to choose it. You’re getting close to GX7 performance from a smaller package.

    Hi,
    GF6 has low light performance and dynamic range is inferior compared to GF7. These are the 2 main reasons why you buy a GF7.

    GF7’s sensor is similar if not a derivative of that from GX7, therefore it’s performance is superior to past models of GF series also including GX1.
