Capture true-to-life details, textures and gradations thanks to the Panasonic LUMIX LX100’s remarkable imaging sensor – a high-sensitivity, micro four-thirds sensor more than five times larger than standard compact camera sensors. Designed with 12.8MP resolution to maintain light levels, this ensures clearer, sharper results in all lighting conditions, with minimal noise even at ISO 25,600.
With renowned Leica optics, the Panasonic LX100’s zoom lens gives images incredible sharpness, resolution and edge-to-edge detail. The lens’ 24-75mm equivalent focal length suits a wide range of applications, from landscape to portraiture, while its short minimum focusing distance of (3cm at the wide end and 30cm at full zoom) make it possible to shoot spectacular macro close-ups. f/1.7-2.8 maximum brightness ensures superb performance in low light and when freezing fast motion, as well as gorgeous bokeh effects to emphasise your subject.
Intuitive, analogue-like controls make the LUMIX LX100 like an extension of your body. As well as a 2.76 million-dot Live View Finder and 3.0” rear LCD monitor for clear subject viewing and image playback, the camera features a zoom/focus control ring, aperture ring, aspect ratio switch and shutter speed and exposure compensation dials providing intuitive control. Mount the included external flash when you need additional lighting, or expand your technical options with optional accessories such as speedlights, an LED video light or Optical View Finder.
Capture action in vivid 4K or Full High Definition detail. The LUMIX LX100 has a wealth of video features, from manual exposure to time lapse and stop motion animation, to inspire videographers of all levels. The camera even lets you transform your favourite frames of footage into high res, 8MP-equivalent stills using 4K PHOTO.
To catch that perfect moment, you need a camera that can react as quickly as you can. The Panasonic LX100 is built with this in mind, incorporating a quick start-up and release time; high-speed, high-precision DFD (Depth From Defocus) autofocus with face/eye detection; burst speeds of up to 40 fps (frames per second)*; and fast action-freezing shutter speeds of up to 1/4000 sec (mechanical) and 1/6000 sec (electronic). The camera’s Eye Sensor AF will even begin autofocusing from the moment you look into the LVF, ensuring you won’t miss any photo opportunities.
*With electronic shutter (11 fps with mechanical shutter)
The Panasonic LX100 offers so many ways for you to express your creative intent. Make the most of every detail with in-camera RAW processing; adjust your frame with a choice of 4:3, 3:2 or 16:9 aspect ratios; experiment with multiple exposures; and apply various Creative Control filters to give distinctive looks to your images.
