Panasonic LUMIX LX100 12.8 MP Point and Shoot Camera
With the only exception of a slow startup, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 performs very well for its class. This is an excellent camera all-around, with class-leading performance, plenty of features, and very good photo and video quality.
This camera uses a 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor, with its good lens and relatively large sensor resulting in the aforementioned very good photo quality in both JPEG and Raw. Panasonic has also included a unique 4K photo mode, allowing you to extract 4K still images. However, the LX-100 is not as suited for inexperienced shooters, as despite having a full auto mode beginners might face a steep learning curve.
The LX100 is quiet compact, but not enough to fit easily into pockets. It has a rubber grip that makes the camera comfortable to use even with one hand, and the controls are laid out well despite the buttons being a bit flat. This camera offers 4K video capture, but it’s somewhat let down by a lack of support for an external mic. You do get a hot shoe which is included as well as WiFi and near field communications ability for wirelessly sending images to laptops and other devices. Overall, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is an excellent camera, focusing and shooting quickly in all light conditions.
