The new Panasonic LUMIX LX100 is the most forward thinking compact digital camera to come on the market since the first Sony RX100 model. The LX100 has a big 4/3 sensor and high quality lens and has the best image quality a pocket camera can produce?
The 24-75mm lens range on the Panasonic LUMIX LX100 is a touch longer than the RX100M III and sports essentially the same focal ratio. Since the sensor behind it is bigger than the Sony though, the optics and body of the Panasonic are quite larger too. So the LX100 is larger than the RX100M III, but greatly smaller than Canon’s G1 X or Fujifilm’s X100 series. Panasonic’s did make the most of the larger body to add a wealth of controls (including an aperture ring and exposure compensation dial) and an funky retro design inspired by the company’s classic LC1 cameras.
The Panasonic HC-X1000 used was a pre-production model and should not be fully judged from this video.
