Panasonic GX7 digital camera leaks in new batch of images

Last week, the Panasonic GX7 leaked in the German magazine Foto, giving us a decent look at the camera, as well as a roster of its specifications, most of which were in line with leaks that had previously surfaced regarding the digital camera. Now the camera has leaked again, this time on the Japanese website Digicame, complete with several new images of the camera.

This latest leak shows the camera from four different angles: the front, top, back, and the back again, this time with the digital view finder raised. It matches the image seen in Foto Magazine, and the specs are likewise the same, again listing 16-megapixels rather than the 18-megapixels that had been reported in earlier leaks.

According to Digicame, the information was provided to them by an individual "who can be trusted." By all accounts, this is a high-end digital camera, and is being styled after the Four Third L1 camera, giving it a nice retro look. Judging from the pictures, the camera's body looks fairly slim (sans the lens, obviously), but does have a protruding handhold for gripping.

Says the source of this leak, the Panasonic GX7 features a 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor, as well as a 3-inch view finder with 1.04 million dots and the ability to tilt up to 80-degrees. The electronic view finder, meanwhile, is said to be tiltable up to 90 degrees, which is substantiated by the last picture in the batch. Both this leak and the last claims the EVF has 2.76 million dots.

Videos can be recorded in up to full 1920 x 1080/60p, while the shutter speed goes up to a fast 1/8000, and the ISO up to 25,600. As far as software goes, there's said to be 22 filters of some sort, as well as panorama and a silent mode for candid image taking. Again we're hearing that the camera has on-sensor stablization, as well as WiFi and NFC.
