Panasonic LUMIX LX100 12.8 MP Point and Shoot Camera

Expert Review

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/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. 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 aid out well (although the buttons are a bit flat). This camera offers 4K video capture, but it somewhat let down by a lack of support for an external mic but a hot shoe is conveniently included. Panasonic has also included a unique 4K photo mode, allowing you to extract 4K still images. WiFi with NFC is included. Overall, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is an excellent camera, focusing and shooting quickly in all light conditions. While fairly expensive, it’s an excellent option to accompany a DSLR or as an alternative to an interchangeable lens camera.Rating: 4.25/5
