LUMIX DMC-LX100 for ‘Best Photo/Video Camera Expert’


“For enthusiasts who want both a quality still and video camera, the LX100 has a 12.8MP 4/3-inch High-Sensitivity MOS sensor, and the ability to record 4K video. The LX100 has an integral 24-75mm (equivalent) f/1.7-2.8 Leica DC Vario-Summilux lens and numerous control and exposure dials that allow for complete control over imaging, including the ability to deliver 11 frames per second full-resolution images.

Panasonic has proposed what they dub “4K Photo,” grabbing an 8MB still image from the 4K video footage.
