The black Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Digital Camera is an advanced Four Thirds format point-and-shoot with manual controls designed to enable and inspire creativity. It features a large multi-aspect 4/3 type MOS sensor to produce 12.8MP still images (4:3) and 4K Ultra HD video at 30 and 24 fps. You also have the ability to extract high-resolution 8MP images from the 4K video, letting you capture entire scenes without missing a shot.The built-in Leica DC Vario-Summilux zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-75mm, covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives. With a fast maximum aperture of f/1.7-2.8, the lens lets you work in lower light situations and provides selective focus control for shallow depth of field imagery, enhanced by a nine-bladed aperture for smooth out-of-focus rendering. When more light is needed, the camera features an integrated hot shoe, letting you use external flash units. A compact flash unit is included with the camera, matching the style and color of the body, and providing a GN of 23 (7m) at ISO 100.The lightweight, compact body features both an electronic viewfinder and a rear LCD screen. The high-density 2,764k-dot viewfinder lets you confidently frame your shots, even in bright outdoor environments. Delivering approximately 100% of the Adobe RGB color space, the viewfinder accurately reproduces hues, so you know what you see is what youre capturing. The rear 3.0 screen is also available, with a 921k-dot resolution. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC allows remote camera control and image sharing from linked mobile devices using the Panasonic Image App.4/3 Type MOS Sensor

The LX100 features a 4/3-sized MOS image sensor - similar in size to the sensors found in Panasonics interchangeable lens mirrorless Micro Four Thirds cameras. The high-sensitivity sensor features a multi-aspect sensor with 16.8MP total resolution, enabling you to use more height or width of the sensor, depending on the aspect ratio youre shooting in. Additionally, by maintaining an effective resolution of 12.8MP (in 4:3 mode), the volume of light is controlled to improve the S/N ratio for clearer, detailed imaged with reduced noise, even when shooting at ISO 25600.

Multiple Aspect Ratios

To take advantage of the multi-aspect sensor, a switch on the lens barrel lets you quickly switch between 4:3, 3:2, or 16:9 aspect ratios without having to scroll through menus.

Manual Controls

The LX100 is designed to inspire creativity by offering a full range of manual controls and advanced imaging features. Dedicated lens rings give you intuitive control of aperture, zoom, while dials on the top of the camera give you easy access to shutter speed and exposure compensation.

24-75mm Leica DC Vario-Summilux f/1.7-2.8 Lens

The built-in Leica DC Vario-Summilux lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-75mm, covering wide-angle to portrait length perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of shooting conditions. An f/1.7-2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low light conditions throughout the entire zoom range and enables greater control over focus placement for shallow depth of field imagery. Five aspherical elements, including two ED lenses, are incorporated into the lens design to minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range to benefit creating sharp, clear imagery.

Light Speed AF with DFD Technology

Light Speed AF, a contrast-detection AF system, uses Depth from Defocus technology to greatly reduce focus time. It instantly calculates distance to subject by evaluating two separate images with different sharpness levels. The result is a high-speed AF in approximately 0.14 seconds.

High-Resolution EVF

The integrated 2764k-dot resolution viewfinder lets you frame and capture shots even in bright sunlight. Based on the Adobe RGB color space, the viewfinder faithfully reproduces the primary colors for more true-to-life hues, allowing you to accurate judge the colors of your scene. And to prevent missing any shooting opportunity, the Eye Sensor AF can be set to initiate auto focusing the instant you look into it.

4K UHD and Full HD Video Recording

Take advantage of 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 video recording at 30 or 24 fps in MP4 format. 4K video can be recorded for up to 15 minutes, and requires an SD card rated at UHS-I Speed Class 3. The camera also records Full HD 1080p video at 60 or 30 fps in MP4 or AVCHD formats.

Grab High-Resolutions Stills from 4K Video

The LX100 has the ability to use the 4K video as a high-speed burst shooting mode, letting you extract 8MP resolution stills from the footage. This yields images with enough resolution to enlarge and print high-quality photos. Once 4K photo mode is selected, the luminance level is adjusted to 0-255. At the same time, you can select 4:3 or 3:2, in addition to 16:9 with the aspect ratio switch.

Brackets

In addition to tradition exposure bracketing, the camera can also bracket images with different aspect ratios (4:3, 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1), white balance parameters, and monochrome photo styles.

Creative Control with 22 Filter Effects

Expressive, Retro, Old Days, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Monochrome, Dynamic Monochrome, Rough Monochrome, Silky Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Toy Pop, Bleach Bypass, Miniature Effect, Soft Focus, Fantasy, Star Filter, One Point Color, Sunshine

Note: Available effects vary depending on shooting mode

External Flash Included

When extra light is needed, take advantage of the cameras integrated hot shoe with the included external flash unit. The flash features a guide number of 23 (7 m) at ISO 100.

Wireless Connectivity

Built-in Wi-Fi lets you use the Panasonic Image App on your mobile device to set focus and shoot photos and videos remotely. You can then instantly upload and share images to social media sites, as well as tag location information to the image using the GPS log on your smartphone or tablet. NFC support lets you instantly sync an NFC-compatible smartphone or tablet simply by touching it to the camera. You can also scan the QR code displayed on the camera monitor to sync.

  • Ok camera but sent back for repair
    Verified BuyerReviewed by hotwater - November 22, 2016

    I bought this camera as an alternative to bringing my pro-class DSLR when travelling. It has good image quality and an eye-level viewfinder. I can't use the rear screen as I am an old SLR user. Anyway the most important part of a camera is the 12 inches behind the viewfinder. Phones have blank space there. Worked well to start but then had a zoom issue requiring turning the power off then on to clear but would not go past 40mm equivalent without having the problem recur. I haven't received the camera back from Panasonic yet so let's see if it can be repaired and be reliable. Not too sold on it yet. Seems rather fragile compared to my Canon 1 series cameras.

  • Great Camera for the Photo-Enthusisast Traveler
    Verified BuyerReviewed by MartyH - November 11, 2015

    I wasn't trying to replace my Canon 60D, but instead find a camera that I could use when I travel. I wanted a high quality reliable camera that was light and portable. It had to have convenient access to basic controls like aperture and shutter speed. It did not bother me if the camera was a point and shoot with a fixed lens. But how often can we afford to purchase a camera with a Leica lens. The 60D is still my go to camera for planned photo shoots, but now I have the Panasonic DMC LX100 as my go to travel camera. Italy here I come.......

  • Incredible image quality, great 4K video!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by gwtbike - August 3, 2016

    Found this as a discontinued item as an open-box. Got a killer deal on it. I'll just start with the cons: - no articulating LCD - no touchscreen LCD However, you can solve both of these issues with an old iPhone and a hot shoe iPhone mount. Use the Panasonic Image App and it basically solves those issues. Pros: Solid build, great image quality, easy to use menus and controls, solid feedback from the knobs, dials and buttons, good battery life, OK size (it can fit in your pocket, but it will look funny).
