Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is an ambitious compact camera with a big sensor, a wide-aperture lens, and 4K video recording, but it falls just short of top honors.

Large image sensor. Wide aperture zoom lens. Sharp EVF. Top-notch high ISO performance. Speedy autofocus. 11.3fps burst shooting. Excellent control layout. 4K video capture with 4K photo mode. Integrated Wi-Fi. Hot shoe.

Expensive. Bulky. Overactive video autofocus. Sensor resolution limits detail. No built-in flash. Fixed LCD doesn't support touch input. Lacks microphone input.

There's built-in Wi-Fi, so you can copy JPG images to your smartphone or tablet when on the go, upload images to the Web using Panasonic's Lumix Club service when on your home Wi-Fi, or control the camera remotely. You can adjust the focal length, tap...

Panasonic Lumix LX100 black

 

Despite a full auto mode, however, newbies might face a steep climb up the learning curve. At $900 (£800, AU$1,200), it's also pretty expensive if you're just looking for an upgrade to better photo and video than whatever you're using now.

The Panasonic LX100 delivers really good photo and video quality, a great set of features, and class-leading performance.

It's got a fixed LCD and the lens really needs a hood to minimize flare.

With really good photo and video quality, a great set of features and generally class-leading performance, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is probably one of our favorite compact cameras ever. It's not for the inexperienced, though.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review

 

Some of the most beloved premium compact cameras in the last decade are Panasonic's LX-series. They always offered larger-than-average sensors but, from the LX3 onwards, the big draw of those cameras has been their fast lenses. The last LX model was...

Excellent stills image quality - especially in Raw Unsurpassed combination of large sensor and bright lens Impressive and usable video capabilities Comprehensive and well-designed direct controls (with good customization options) Fast, responsive...

JPEG noise reduction and sharpening are rather crude at low ISOs Lens range can be limiting 12MP may not be enough for some users Manually positioning an AF point is awkward (and workaround limits customization choices) Focus peaking often too subtle...

The LX100 may build on the reputation built-up by previous LX models but its ambitions are much greater. Rather than trying to compete with other enthusiast compacts, the LX100 has aimed directly for the top spot. It's not the zoom compact with the...

Panasonic LX100 Review

 

Panasonic's first large-sensor, enthusiast compact camera is here, and it's a beauty! The 12.8-megapixel Panasonic LX100 opts for a slightly larger body than most rivals, but that also frees up room for the same generous sensor size used in the...

Very good image quality; Great performance in most respects; Bright zoom lens with good macro performance; Photographer-friendly body easily fits in a coat pocket or small bag; Roomy, high-res built-in viewfinder; Decent battery life

Won't fit in a pants pocket; Relatively low resolution by modern standards; Zoom lens has only a modest telephoto; Soft corners at wide or tele positions; Aperture dial is too easily bumped; Bundled flash is fairly weak
