On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review preview (826 comments in total)

So which internal codec is used by the camera for those 100Mbit 4k samples?

SirLataxe: Very nice - but lacking in two essentials: no articulating screen and no facility to mount a wide angle conversion lens.

An articulated screen would make the camera so much more useful, especially for close-ups, street photography and video, where taking the pictures from waist or lower level makes such a difference.

A high quality add-on WA lens would make the camera an ideal tool for landscapes taken during longer walks in difficult terrain, where the weight of a larger camera and lenses would be tedious.

It is essential if you want more flexibility and ease of use in many situations.

AV Janus: Have you guys try the x265 codec video?
What bitrat does it do under 1080p and 4K ?

Thank you is that a in camera screen grab as photo or a screenshot done on a computer after?

Holy!
That looks like its 90 - 100MBit x265 video! Nice!
Are there other settings? Which mode was this? the highest?

EVF would be nice...
But that would require licencing and or R&D = mission impossible for them

When it comes down to these pictures better to be humble then to show off, of how it once was...

The old pillars are still there. Just hidden from the rebellious crowds.
Leased freedom...

Someone should stay true to their name and don't think to much about world order.
Or maybe look up founding contracts of your own country and who authorized signed the lease on it.

Nothing in this world is simple, I am afraid. But life is to short.

Gunnlaugur Gudmundsson: Bad photos, the first one shows a definite softness in the corners, photo nr 5, blown highlights, my Gawd ... and, what's totally unacceptable, sharpness across the frame is absent in all of them!

Why on earth post this crap?

Joking of course ... ;-)

They look more like drawings than photos.
Are those taken with PaperCamera Android app?

I mean Instagram sure doesnt have filter this bad!

AV Janus: Why is it so expensive?
Just because it is from a video gear brand or is there some advanced super feature?

Camera specs are P&S at best.
Is it non interchangeable= Not very user, and future, feature proof thinking.

Can't wait these go even more mainstream and more long distance capable and kids start to go drone hunting for fun...

Thanks for the repl. I am not a drone or video guy so I apreciate the insight.
I was just surprised a bit cause I know there is 1001 and one option for drone videography.
If you want a prepackaged product with video background company I guess it makes more sense.

It just surprises me how expensive all the video gear is. Even the simple rails cost hundreds.
American and EU companies...

Wonder if the Chinese make their own stuff, or buy the overpriced US-EU gear.

This is a shadow pushed version of the previous sample for those that dont get why there is so much noise on low ISO.

Very good results!

They could have taken the Sony guts and put it in fake classic wooden camera case and it would have sold better that these cheap tricks.
People of today know better than to buy italian design, hidden under obvious Fiat parts ina Ferrari type of deal...

At this resolution and f2.8 even a front faced portrait loses sharpness on one eye
I guess that would make new portrait aperture f4, f5.6 on FF

JoEick: These photos look lifeless and nothing special (not photographer's fault, he's good!). At least to my eyes.

When I get around to reading the spec sheet and DXO scores they should look a lot better after that.

LOL!
I see what you did there! :-P

Direct link | Posted on Nov 14, 2014 at 17:06 UTC

I can already see it being done in 8K.
Why?

Because we can finally get over the limitation of a single focal length of our eyes.
Put on your 2k VR goggles, put the 360deg camera cap on and use eye gestures to zoom around.
Identifying what you see in real time and translating text to!

Oh what joy!

AV Janus: So all in all you bay 42.000 for service disassembly, cleaning, some polishing and for less than 1g or $40 worth of gold. Those are some margins! :-)

That is some business plan! Must be that top bank managers are doing the polishing and plating for that kind of work price!

And they plan on making "just" 77 of them LOL!
Why did't I think of that!

Just like Gold sh+t Dorodango!
