Panasonic's latest mirrorless system camera, the GX7, comes with one neat trick - it has a built-in live viewfinder that tilts up to 90 degrees. The camera also comes with built-in image stabilization - a first for Panasonic's Micro Four Thirds cameras. Is this lucky number seven a winner?
Panasonic has just announced their latest and greatest mirrorless system camera; the Lumix GX7. And surprise, surprise, we've already had our hands on it for the last two days.

The LF1 is Panasonic's newest advanced compact and has similarities to its LX7 counterpart.

It adds a near 180° tilting touch-screen for easy selfies and built-in Wi-Fi for easy sharing. It even has NFC to easily pair with mobile devices. Check out our review to see how it fares.
