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.

    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.

Panasonic’s LX100 is the top-of-the-line camera in the company’s compact LX series. Compared to other LX models, it is the first camera with an MFT (Micro Four Thirds) sensor. However, the camera doesn’t use the whole image sensor area of 17.3x13mm, so its crop factor is 2.2x instead of the 2.0x of...

The LX100 is a very specific tool - a usefully small camera with an impressively bright lens and good sized sensor. Its short zoom and low pixel count will limit its appeal but dependable image quality and excellent hands-on controls make this one of the best zoom compacts we've ever tested.

  • +

    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 behavior, Classic looks and handling provide...

  • -

    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 to see, Separate clip-on flash simply...

The Panasonic Lumix LX100 is one of the most powerful compact cameras to date. Forget 1in sensors, Panasonic's squeezed in the larger Four Thirds sensor from the Lumix GX7 along with its big and detailed viewfinder too.

  • +

    Great quality from (mildly-cropped) Four Thirds sensor., Maintains diagonal field of view with 4:3, 3:2 and 16:9., Useful lens range with bright aperture., Decent-sized electronic viewfinder., 4k video with in-camera photo grabbing., Fast continuous shooting up to 11fps at full resolution.

  • -

    Screen isn’t touch-sensitive and doesn’t tilt., Corner softness at 50-75mm unless stopped-down to f8., Below average stabilisation for stills and video., EVF sometimes suffers from rainbow artefacts for me., No built-in flash., No microphone input., No built-in ND filter.

In short, no camera has everything, but the LX100 offers a better mix of portability, build quality, image quality and video performance than you will find in any camera near this price.

  • +

    Beautiful and durable retro design, supersharp 4K video, quick autofocus, great color and detail in photos, solid low-light performance, superclear electronic viewfinder

  • -

    Rear LCD is not a touch screen, no external mic jack, lacks built-in flash

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 company's Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras.

  • +

    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, Great ergonomics will appeal to experienced photographers,...

  • -

    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, Not truly pants pocket-friendly, Relatively low resolution compared to rivals...

The Panasonic LX100 is a relatively compact premium digital camera. Its 16 MP Four-Thirds sensor, being used with a 2.2X crop-factor, rather than the usual 2X, delivers exceptional image-quality in multiple aspect-ratios while keeping an ultra-wide field-of-view most of the time.

  • +

    Extremely low image-noise, Superb detail-retention, Ultra-wide field-of-view, Ultra-Bright F/1.7 - 2.8 maximum aperture, Excellent resistance to chromatic aberrations, Uniform lens brightness, Ultra-fast autofocus, Instant shutter-lag, Fast shot-to-shot speed, Smooth high-quality 4K Ultra-HD video,...

  • -

    Below-average Auto White-Balance, Low color accuracy, Slow optical zoom, Half-press required for Exposure-Priority and correct Live-Histogram, Accident-prone EC dial and control-ring, 1s Filming delay, Poor tripod mount placement, Short battery-life

The LX100 puts the large Four Thirds (that’s 4/3″ or 1.33″) sensor inside of a compact camera body that’s on roughly par with the Canon G16 line of cameras in terms of overall size.

There's no doubting the LX100 is great, but is it the best compact camera ever?

The primary reason I chose this camera over the others is that it has a larger sensor, and therefore, a larger lens, and this means better image quality, ... period. Other features that are unique are the hotshoe flash and the lens cap.

Proffesional and good camera..but the price very higher.....

    Proffesional camera

1 August 2017

The image quality is superb, the zoom range generous, and the ability to control exposure settings ideal for someone looking to avoid the weight of a DSLR. I'm not getting rid of my Nikon D800s but for vacations and neighborhood strolls, this is the best solution I have found.

The LX100 is a great grab-and-go camera for enthusiasts or people who just love taking great pictures. The micro 4/3rds sensor is huge for a camera this size and it pays off with great pictures. The manual controls (with the exception of focus) are also great.

    Focus is a little slow when taking videos and manual focus is awkward.

This camera is easy to use and excellent in it's photo quality. I love it, couldn't be more pleased. I am an artist and require high quality photos of my work for publication web use. This camera suits that purpose in addition to general use.

I bought this camera to take on a trip to Europe. Although I have SLRs I wanted a lightweight small camera with a viewfinder and multiple settings, plus a good lens. It worked out very well for me. Has the ability to shoot inside in low-light situations like churches, and is pretty fast.

28 July 2017

Just the best little camera I've ever owned. The 'always have with me' camera that takes fabulous shots.

8 July 2017

Nice camera. But you can't set shutter length past 4" in manual focus. So until I learn how to get around that, I can't take pics of stars, even with my phone as a remote.
