The Panasonic Lumix LX100 II is a 17 megapixel enthusiast zoom compact with a 24-75mm equivalent F1.7-2.8 lens. It uses up to 85% of the area of a Four Thirds-sized sensor to give a choice of aspect ratios without narrowing the field of view.
Like the Panasonic LUMIX LX100, the LX100 II features extensive external control points but it now also gains a touchscreen to speed up processes such as AF point positioning and interacting with the customizable function menu.
Micro Four Thirds Large High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and Venus EngineThe Lumix LX100 II integrates a total 21.77-megapixel sensor achieving effective 17.0 megapixel in 4:3 aspect. A boost in resolution when compared to the original LX100 camera, the extra pixels ensure high resolution no matter which one you choose to shoot in - pick from 4:3, 3:2, 1:1 and 16:9. Approximately 1.6x larger than a one-inch type sensor, the new sensor boasts excellent signal to noise ratio, resulting in a dramatic reduction in noise when shooting at the maximum ISO setting of 25,600.
Meanwhile, the latest Venus Engine renders vibrant, true-to-life high quality images with excellent resolution, high contrast and impressive colour reproduction.
24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 (equivalent) lens: LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX Lens and 3cm Macro Shot
Providing a 3.1x optical zoom, the 24-75mm equivalent lens is close to the classic 24-70mm focal length.
Giving you the flexibility to shoot a diverse range of subjects, from landscapes to portraits, the lens also benefits from a wide f/1.7-f/2.8 aperture for beautiful bokeh and fantastic low-light shooting.
Equipped with Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser), and comprising 11 elements in 8 groups, including 2 ED lenses and 5 aspherical lenses with 8 aspherical surfaces, you can be sure that your shots will be sharp and superbly defined.
Macro shots can be captured beautifully thanks to a minimum focusing distance of 3cm (wide) and 30cm (tele).
Ultra high-definition 4K video and 4K Photo for unmissable moments
Panasonic’s advanced 4K Photo function takes advantage of 4K video recording to allow you to shoot at up to 30fps*1 and extract the perfect moment as 8-megapixel stills directly in the camera. New additions include an Auto Marking function, which enables quicker jumping to the most appropriate frame; and Sequence Composition, the merging of various frames to create a special effect.
Post Focus and Focus Stacking functions have also been added, plus Light Composition mode can be used to create dramatic firework or night scenery shots with ease.
