At the top of the GX7 is a mode dial and a control wheel around the shutter button. In conjunction with the usual adjustment wheel at the back of the camera, the control wheel can be used to adjust parameters when shooting in manual modes, such as aperture and shutter speed.
Within the menus, the direction and operation of these wheels can be adjusted to the photographer's liking.
The EVF tilts up 90 degrees for a more discreet shooting experience, particularly for street photography and portraiture. At 2.76 million dots, the EVF is also very high resolution and offers 100 percent coverage.
A canoe at sunset, taken on the GX7. The camera does come with a built-in HDR mode, which snaps three images in quick succession at either 1, 2, or 3EV either side of the metered exposure. This shot, however, was taken without the HDR mode active, using a vivid picture mode preset.
