Is the G7 THE ultimate EDC camera? [On a Budget]

With a recent trip to SeaWorld I decided to change things up a bit a instead of taking my Lumix GX8 or Big G9, I reached for my old tiny G7 🙂 known mostly for its 4K video function – Its a killer stills camera too!

What do we all look for in a Every Day Carry (EDC) camera?

▪️Weight (Light As Possible)


▪️Image Quality



Loaded with my Olympus 60mm Macro Lens I had a tiny light combo that was versatile, easy to carry – That resulted in unique & quality images of our day.

I found it great to carry all day long & it did not tie me down or felt heavy once – It was very also discreet & did not draw attention to itself at all.

Being able to control the G7 in full manual mode & having a 16mp sensor the G7 is a little camera that is MORE than enough to handle most situations & having the option to change lenses makes what I think it a super versatile EDC camera combo.

PRICE?!? Did I mention the price?!? I have seen this camera on marketplace for as low as $400 – sometimes with a kit lens too! This is where the budget factor fits in 🙂 Most point & shoot cameras at this price point & have no where near the flexibility & functions of the G7.

So for this summer I think the G7 is going to be my new EDC camera, especially paired up with a nice little prime lens is going to be a “Super Combo”
