BEST PHOTO/VIDEO CAMERA EXPERT

Panasonic LUMIX DMC LX100

For enthusiasts who want both a quality still and video camera, the LX100 has a 12.8MP 4/3-inch High-Sensitivity MOS sensor, and the ability to record 4K video. The LX100 has an integral 24-75mm (equivalent) f/1.7-2.8 Leica DC Vario-Summilux lens and numerous control and exposure dials that allow for complete control over still imaging, including the ability to deliver 11 frames per second full-resolution images. The video side is quite impressive, with the ability to record Full HD 1920 x 1080 AVCHD Progressive or MP4 at 60p, or 4K 3840 x 2160 at 30 fps. Panasonic has proposed what they dub “4K Photo,” grabbing an 8MB still image from the 4K video footage. Other features include WiFi and NFC connectivity and a RAW+JPEG format choice.
