Posted by at 2:59 pm on September 15, 2014

Panasonic has unveiled a compact camera which uses a Micro Four Thirds sensor, one that is physically five times larger than the sensor used in the Lumix LX7. The Lumix LX100 packs in a 12.8-megapixel MOS sensor combined with a new quad-core Venus Engine processor, which the company claims helps achieve a shallow depth of field and a dramatic reduction in noise at high ISO levels.

Offering an ISO range going up to 25,600, the LX100 uses a Leica 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 lens with optical image stabilization, giving it a maximum optical zoom of 3.1x or 6.2x under “Intelligent Zoom.” With a shooting speed of 11fps in burst and a full-area AD with 49 detection zones, and an autofocus time of 0.14 of a second using Depth from Defocus, it is also capable of recording 4K video at 30fps, with a “4K Photo Mode” allowing for stills to be captured from a recorded 4K video.

Aside from its 2,764k-dot electronic viewfinder, it has a rear 3-inch 921k-dot LCD display, the option to apply up to 22 filters to an image, and Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity.

Panasonic is planning to ship the Lumix LX100 in October, though pricing has yet to be released.
