The Panasonic LX10 compact camera boasts a 20.1 Megapixel, 1-inch Sensor which allows you capture photos and 4K video with impressive detail. A sharp f/1.4-2.8 LEICA lens comes in handy for shooting low light conditions. Its compact size combined with a useful zoom range makes this camera an ideal choice to accompany you on vacation.
1-Inch CMOS sensor
With a 1-inch CMOS sensor with 20.1 Megapixels, that allows you to easily capture clear shots with rich detail the LX10 is the perfect hybrid of convenience and quality. The sensor and the included Venus engine give you the ability to use ISO12800 / Extended ISO25600 for optimised low light performance that is superior to comparable compact cameras.
Leica Optical Technology Lens
The camera has a fast 24-72mm (35mm equivalent) f/1.4-2.8 Leica zoom lens that allows you to use quicker shutter speeds to create sharper shots with fine detail. The wide 1.4 aperture comes in handy to capture images with beautiful out of focus bokeh affects or shoot in low light conditions, equipping you to cover a range of different shooting situations.
3-Inch 1040k-dot Tiltable Touch Screen
There is a 3-inch 1040k-dot touch screen on the camera which is tiltable so it can be used to easily shoot low angle shots. Additionally, the screen tilts upwards 180 degrees perfect for capturing selfies and group shots without a tripod.
Using the LX10 you can take shots at a super close minimum distance of 3cm especially useful for macro photography when you need to capture the details of small objects like flowers or insects.
The optical image stabilisation provided by the POWER O.I.S. system helps compensate for hand shake and vibrations to ensure that your images remain sharp and blur free when you are using the camera handheld.
The LX10 uses a DFD (Depth from Defocus) technology in the camera to deliver quick accurate focus particularly useful for shooting clean crisp shots of objects that are moving very fast. When shooting in the burst mode you can capture 6 frames in a second with subject tracking or an even quicker 10 by with a locked focus. The combination of fast autofocus tracking and quick drive modes allow you to create clear images of fast moving subjects ideal to capture athletes competing at a sporting event or fast moving animals.
4K Videos and Photos
With the ability to shoot 4K video on the camera you can create high resolution footage as well as use the 4K Photo Mode to choose a particular frame from a 4K video to export as an 8-megapixel JPEG image.
Next Generation 4K Functionality
Post Focus Photo Mode The revolutionary Post Focus option allows you to capture a scene and choose the focus later. The Post Focus mode combines the camera's existing Depth from Defocus autofocusing system and its 4K movie capabilities to record roughly one second of video at 30 frames per second. During this recording, the camera's autofocusing system scans from the foreground to the background of the scene to capture the focus possibilities of the entire shot. In playback mode the focal point can then be selected by simply touching the point that you want to appear sharp. The camera automatically selects the optimum frame and gives you the option to export.
Focus Stacking Photo By using the same technology as the Post Focus Mode, the camera takes a video at 30 frames a second while automatically changing the autofocus from close to far to ensure that every bit of focus information is captured. Then in playback mode you can combine areas that are in focus from different shots together into the one shot. Perfect for Macro images or any other style of photography where all-round sharpness is key.
Video Live Cropping By shooting in 4K video you are able to sacrifice some resolution to digitally stabilise your video footage in real time with the Live cropping feature. Because of the higher resolution of 4K you still have a full HD video file after it’s been steadied.
Light Composition Photo Mode Designed to help take photos of fireworks and other dramatic night scenes the light composition mode saves the brightest pixel from a collection of images to capture more impressive night sky photography.
High Speed Full HD Video Recording
Able to capture rapid movement with east the camera gives you get the ability to record Full HD videos of objects or people in slow motion. These high speed videos are recorded at 120 fps and enable you to see details otherwise not visible to the naked eye, like water held in the shape of a balloon after it is popped or intricate dance movements.
Enhanced Control System
Using the ring around the camera lens you can change the aperture for enhanced control over your depth of field. The ring can be used in conjunction with the rear dial to manually control the shutter speed, zoom and focus of the camera depending on what mode is selected and is fully customisable.
The Panasonic Lumix LX 10 is an incredibly useful combination of high quality features all packed into an ultra-small convenient travel sized package with manual control options. It allows you to take quality pictures quickly but also provides a lot of opportunity for photographic growth with its advanced options.
