Panasonic's Lumix DMC-G7 feels like it's as much a little brother to the 4K-toting GH4, as a follow-up to the G6. It's being billed as the mirrorless camera to bring the full benefits of 4K video to the rest of us, thanks to its ability to shoot 4K footage at 30 fps, and then extract 8-megapixel stills from it. While we've seen those features before, the G7 is arguably the first time they've been built into a mirrorless camera which is simultaneously powerful and accessible to the masses.

However, to reduce the intimidation factor for less experienced photographers, the camera is smaller and more accessible, with an Auto Mode Switch lever for accessing the fully-automatic Advanced SR Auto mode.
