As of the time of writing this article, it’s been almost four years since Panasonic released the G7, and somehow it still remains one of the best budget options when it comes to mirrorless cameras, especially if you’re more interested in video recording. It shoots very sharp 4K video and takes decent photos, all at a very attractive price point. As you probably know, most cameras don’t come with a lot of accessories in the box, especially if they’re this affordable. Most people will need to get some additional gear for it. We decided to help out and make a list of some of the best accessories for Panasonic G7.
Best Battery for Panasonic G7
Panasonic G7 is powered by Panasonic DMW-BLC12 battery, which is used in some other camera models from this manufacturer. With 1,200 mAh, it isn’t particularly large, and an additional battery isn’t quite cheap. Thankfully, there are replacement batteries from other manufacturers that function just fine. We will leave links to both the official and replacement batteries below:

Screen Protectors for Panasonic G7
Some people take good care of their camera screen but if you don’t belong to this group, we suggest investing in a screen protector.

Best SD Memory Cards for Panasonic G7
If you haven’t taken a look at our article on the best SD cards for Panasonic G7 we suggest you do so. To sum up, the camera has one UHS-I SD card slot, and our suggestion would be to pick up more than one SD card, especially if you’re going to be shooting a lot of videos because they can fill up pretty quickly. There is absolutely no need to spend additional money on faster UHS-II cards. Here’s our top choice for the G7.

Microphones and Audio
We believe that many people who have or are planning to buy this camera are going to be shooting a lot of video with it. If you’re one of them and are serious about videography, chances are you don’t want to be using the built-in mic. This camera has a mic jack, so we definitely suggest investing in a good quality microphone. We’ll leave the link to a few options below, so you can choose depending on your budget, quality and size of the microphones.

Best Camera Straps for Panasonic G7
Peak Design is the most famous company making high-quality camera straps at the moment. If you’re looking to invest in a good strap, we suggest grabbing a Slide Lite strap that will certainly last you for many years to come, and will work well with even more advanced and heavier cameras you may decide to get in the future. You can use this strap as a sling strap, shoulder strap or neck strap. If you prefer wrist straps instead, Peak design makes a pretty good one as well.

Best Tripods for Panasonic G7
Since the G7 is so small and light it makes sense to use it paired with some of the lightest tripods on the market. These two are our favorites:
Manfrotto Befree Advanced Travel Tripod with Ball Head – Amazon
Sirui T-005X Aluminum Tripod with C-10S Ball Head – Amazon
If you need something even smaller, you can go with one of these two tiny tripods that you can extremely portable.
JOBY GorillaPod 3K – Amazon
Pedco UltraPod – Amazon
We believe that every photographer or videographer should have lens wipes and an air blower in their camera bag. If you don’t have one of these essentials, we suggest getting them, because you’ll need them sooner rather than later.

Zeiss Lens Cleaning Wipes – Amazon
