    Just got my My GX7 and I'm having some setup problems.
    !. Why I can't operate the flash while in electronic shutter mode?
    2. What do I have to do in order to activate the HDR window in the setup menu?
    these things are not explained in the manual

    Still waiting on mine to arrive but I believe I read somewhere that the flash is not available in electronic shutter mode. I can't answer your second question.

    I guess that the electronic shutter reads the sensor using a different, slower method, otherwise it would not produce rolling shutter effects. The sync speed must be too low.

    You have to save in JPEG only, no RAW.
    I don't understand why Panasonic put this restriction, they could have store one RAW (or all of them) and the JPEG. Anyway, we have no choice.
