The last time Panasonic announced a camera from its LX series was back in 2012, the DMC-LX7. Now at photokina, the company has launched what is perhaps the most impressive small-sized camera from a low-light point of view—the LX100. 

The biggest improvement in the camera comes in the form of its Micro Four Thirds sensor, in comparison to the 1/1.7-inch sensor in the LX7. It features a 12.8MP camera with a fixed 24–75mm equivalent f/1.7-2.8 optically stabilized lens. This also makes it the only fixed lens camera to feature a Micro Four Thirds sensor. When you combine these two features—the fast lens and the large sensor size, will be appreciated by those who enjoy shooting shallow depth of field images.

In terms of size, the camera is slightly bigger than the ones Panasonic’s customers are used to from their LX-series, but still incredibly small considering the sensor size. Other features of the camera include 4K video recording at 30p, a built-in WiFi with NFC, 3-inch 920k-dot tilting touch LCD, 11fps continuous shooting and 6.5fps with autofocus and in-camera RAW conversion.

The DMC-LX100 will be available in November for USD 899 (approx. Rs. 54,935).
