Panasonic has added a new compact camera to its LX-series in the body of the Lumix LX10, which is capable of recording 4K videos.
After confirming the development of the Lumix GH5, Panasonic has announced the Lumix LX10 compact camera. It is the latest addition to the LX line-up and the first to feature a 1-inch-type sensor.
This is a small and lightweight camera that will allow people to shoot great photos and videos with ease. It comes with many interesting features and it could be everything that you need during a vacation or walk through the city.
Panasonic LX10 becomes official at Photokina 2016
A 1-inch-type High-Sensitivity MOS Sensor with a resolution of 20.1 megapixels is available in the Panasonic LX10. The sensor is bigger than the one found in the LX7 and smaller than the one found in the LX100.
This compact camera is powered by a Venus Engine, which gives users the option to record videos at 4K resolution and 30fps. Full HD movie capturing is supported at up to 60fps, while a burst mode of up to 6fps is available with continuous autofocusing turned on. In single-focus mode, the camera delivers up to 10fps.
As expected, the shooter supports 4K Photo mode along with technologies such as Post Focus, Depth from Defocus, and Focus Stacking. Getting back to videos, the company confirmed that a 5-axis Hybrid OIS+ system will reduce camera shakes in order to make sure that movies will be smooth and blur-free.
Additionally, photographers will be able to take advantage of Power OIS technology, which will have a similar effect to the one of its video counterpart. If you shoot RAW files, then you will be able to process them in-camera.
Touchscreen, electronic shutter, WiFi, and more coming your way this November
Panasonic LX10 offers a native ISO range between 125 and 12,800, while the expanded one ranges between 80 and 25,600. The shutter speed stands between 60 seconds and 1/4000th of a second, but there is an electronic shutter mode with a maximum speed of 1/16000th of a second.
On the back, there is a 3-inch 1.04-million-dot tilting LCD touchscreen. In the front, users will find a 3x optical zoom lens with a full-frame focal length equivalent of 24-72mm and a maximum aperture of f/1.4-2.8.
There are 49 focus points in the AF sensor with support for a macro photography that will allow the camera to focus on subjects located at a distance of only three centimeters. A built-in flash is available, too.
Users will be able to remotely control the camera via WiFi technology starting November 2016, when the camera is scheduled to be released. It will be priced at $699.99.
