Not satisfied with the smartphones of the world digging into their market share, traditional camera companies are beginning to release their own models featuring "selfie-ready" functionality. Less than a week after Fujifilm's X-A2 release, Panasonic has just unveiled their own player, the DMC-GF7, which is an entry-level mirrorless camera that pairs a selfie-ready tiltable 3-inch 1.04-million-dot touchscreen LCD into a line of cameras with a classic, retro look. Inside the body, a 16-megapixel sensor with an ISO range of 200-25600 can be found paired with shutter speeds that go to 1/16000s or 5.8FPS in continuous shooting mode. Rounding out the new perks, the GF7 boasts Wi-Fi connectivity that can also pair the camera with a smartphone or tablet for live view, triggering, and transferring images. Set to launch in February in both black in pink with a 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens for $600, you can hit after the jump to see more angles and a video preview of the new gear.
