Controls Designed to Inspire Creativity
Designed to inspire and expand the creative potential of every camera enthusiast, the Panasonic LX100 comes complete with an exciting range of advanced imaging features. It encourages direct, intuitive control with dedicated lens rings and dials, including aperture and control rings for precise zooming and focusing, as well as speed and exposure compensation dials.
Approaching New Expressive Horizons – Micro Four Thirds High Sensitivity MOS Sensor
It”s now more rewarding than ever to render smooth, seamless gradations and rich, fuller textures in all their natural beauty. To help capture subtle details and nuances the Panasonic LX100 incorporates a large 4/3-inch High Sensitivity MOS Sensor with multi-aspect ratios. By maintaining resolution at 12.8-MP* (in 4:3 setting), the volume of light is controlled to improve the S/N ratio, making it possible to create clear, detailed images with minimum noise. Even when shooting at ISO25600.
*Sensor total pixel is 16.8 MP.
Multiple Aspect Ratios
With a simple switch on the lens barrel, it”s easy to select and set three aspect ratios. This quick, convenient function makes it possible to confidently record images in the 4:3, 3:2 or 16:9 aspect ratio with the same angle of view.
Great Lens, Compact Body – F/1.7-2.8 LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMLUX Lens
With F1.7-2.8 brightness, high speed and crisp detail corner to corner, this sophisticated LEICA lens system is the perfect complement to the camera”s compact body, and the key to innovative imaging. This precision lens unit consists of 11 elements in eight groups with five aspherical lenses — including two ED lenses.
These lenses, together with a space-saving drive range, work seamlessly with Panasonic”s original centering technology to enhance alignment sharpness.
Smooth, Beautiful Defocus Effects: When combined with the large, high-sensitivity MOS Sensor, this lens configuration gives images a shallow depth of field with an impressive defocus effect featuring invisible edge lines and onion rings. And a newly adopted nine-aperture diaphragm helps produce breathtaking bokeh effects with smooth, circular shapes.
Light Speed AF with DFD Technology
With the Panasonic LX100, new Depth From Defocus technology slashes focus time. It instantaneously calculates distance to subject by evaluating two separate image with different sharpness levels. The result is ultra-high speed AF in approximately 0.14 seconds.
2,764-dot Equivalent High Resolution LFV
An integrated Live View Finder with 2,764-dot equivalent high resolution delivers approximately 100 percent color reproduction* to assure stable framing and superb visibility when shooting under strong sunlight. And to prevent missing any shooting opportunity, the Eye Sensor AF initiates auto focusing the instant you look into it. A 3.0-inch 921k-dot rear monitor is also available.
*Based on the Adobe RGB color space. Panasonic in-house comparison based on the CIE 1931 x, y color space.
A New Form of Photo Expression – Print High-Resolution Photos from 4K Video
In addition to 4K Ultra HD video recording,* the Panasonic LX100 also has the ability to grab 3840 x 2160 MP equivalent stills from 4K video footage to enlarge and print high-definition photos. Once 4K Photo mode is selected, the luminance level is adjusted to 0-255, suitable for photos. At the same time, you can also select 4:3 or 3:3 in addition to 16:9 with the aspect ratio switch.
*4K video can be recorded for up to 15 minutes. When recording in 4K, use a SD card rated UHS Speed Class 3.
4K Video and 1920 x 1080p Full-HD Video: The Panasonic LX100 not only has the advantage of shooting QFHD 3849 x 2160, 30fps /24 fps in MP4, it also has the ability to use 4K video as high-speed burst shots, and extract spontaneous moments with 8-MP resolution. Plus record Full-HD 1920 x 1080 60p video in AVCHD Progressive or MP4 format.
4K video can be recorded for up to 15 minutes. When recording in 4K, use a SD card rated UHS Speed Class 3.
Motion pictures in AVCHD can be recorder for up to 29 minutes, 59 seconds.

DP Review – Best High-end Compact Camera of 2014: – LX100
“The Panasonic LX lineage is a strong one, and the LX100 truly brings the series to the next level. Panasonic engineers saw the impressively sized sensors other manufacturers have been fitting into compacts and raised the stakes with a cropped 13MP Four Thirds sensor. This bigger imager coupled with a very fast 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 equivalent lens, good controls and strong image quality, lead us to declare the LX100 as one of the best compact cameras to date – clearly you agree!”
