    I'm having difficult time trying to connect my laptop to the GX7 via direct mode. iPAD and iPhone work fine. The manual is not very helpful either. Guidance from the community will be appreciated!

    Don't believe you can connect to a laptop, just to the panasonic mobile apps.

    You can connect through a wireless network. The camera needs to be very close to the router. I have not set this up, but read about it either here on Mu-43 or another forum.

    As you say but note that connecting to a Windows or Mac desktop does not allow you to control the camera, only to upload pictures as you take them or upload them from the card.
