Re: Crop and bitrate on the LX10

According to DPR's review:

Both 1080 and 4K video are take from crops of the sensor, which increases the effective range of the lens to 36-108mm equiv in 4K mode, meaning you have no significant wide angle capabilities. It's a less pronounced crop in 1080 mode but still gives you a 30-90mm equiv range. As well as making the lens range less useful, this decision to use a crop of the sensor will hurt low light performance relative to full-sensor readout offered by RX100 peers, since you're essentially using a smaller sensor camera when you shoot video.
