The G7’s 16.00-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor is highly sensitive and fast-responding. Its Venus Engine dramatically boosts the camera’s performance with a quad-core CPU that achieves high speed signal processing resulting in 8 fps(AFS) / 6 fps(AFC).  Additionally, the Venus Engine vividly improves colour reproduction with an accurate evaluation of each colour – in both saturation and luminosity – allowing the camera to capture exceptionally fast-moving subjects in complete focus. This high-powered engine also excels in diffraction compensation to capture images that are crisp and clear, even when using a small aperture. With an integrated superior noise reduction system, the DMC-G7 also enables shooting at maximum ISO25600.  Sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution and colour reproduction have dramatically advanced in this model to achieve a higher picture quality than ever before.
