Panasonic to Unveil a Rangefinder-styled GX7 MFT Camera Next Month

Styling your mirrorless camera after retro rangefinder cameras of old is popular among camera makers these days, and it appears that the next company to jump onto the bandwagon will be Panasonic. Late next month, the company will be announcing a new Micro Four Thirds camera called the GX7 — the company’s first rangefinder-styled camera.

An idea of what the camera looked like emerged earlier this month after Dutch photo site DIGIFOTO Pro discovered patent illustrations showing the camera:

This first illustration looks like a standard product shot showing the camera at an angle. Korean website DICAHUB took the image and created the colorized version seen at the top of this post. That image is what the camera will likely look like.

Here are some of the other patent illustrations:

43 Rumors writes that the camera’s design was inspired by the Panasonic L1 Four Thirds camera:

The spec list will reportedly include: an 18-megapixel Bayer sensor, in-body 2-axis camera stabilization (the first for a Panasonic camera), a pop-up flash, a tilting built-in electronic viewfinder, and a tilting LCD screen.

As for the price, 43 Rumors writes that the camera will be relatively pricey compared to other Micro Four Thirds bodies — the body-only price is said to be a little more than $ 1,000. We’ll have a full announcement on this camera come late August 2013.
