At the heart of the LX100 is a 12.8-megapixel Micro 4/3”MOS sensor – the same type found in more complex camera systems. With a surface area that’s seven times greater than a conventional compact camera, the LX100 has improved low light performance, saturation and defocussed bokeh capture. The larger sensor and dedicated ratio switch let you quickly select different aspect ratios – including 16:9 for wide-angle composition.
With an analogue control environment routed in established camera design, the LX100 has a dedicated aperture ring, focus ring, shutter speed and exposure compensation dial. There’s a comfortable, instinctive and tactile familiarity to the feel of these controls. With the LX100, you’re given greater freedom to make quick, flexible creative decisions with even greater accuracy.
The LX100 shoots video at 4K. With this resolution, greater clarity, depth of detail and colour is captured at source, and allows for improved flexibility when editing. Techniques such as stabilization and pans can be applied to footage without loss of quality when exporting to full HD. Videos shot at 30fps in 4k allows each individual frame to be extracted as an 8MP image, so you’ll never miss a moment.
