I'm looking for a small cargo pants pocketable camera for daily carry. I have a Pany TS5 but I wanted something with bigger sensor and wider aperture in the long end for night and lowlight shooting. I know that the LX100 v1 is about 5 years old and the LX10 is about 4. The LX100 II is out of the question because of price plus there's really big improvement over v1.

The bigger sensor on the LX100 to me will compensate for the slower lens also having a 12MP meaning bigger pixels than 20MP on the LX10 which again better for low light/night shooting.

Video? I think both don't have the 30 mins limit and have decent 4K.

Budget <$600.00

It sounds like I'm leaning towards the LX100 which I am but I just want to get some opinion from members that have and used one or the other or both. Or other body suggestion.


If you find any cargo pants that can take the LX100, please let me know!

Love mine, but do really doubt it's trouser-pocketable?

Suggest you visit a real shop and handle any possible purchases before buying...


I wear these types of convertible cargo pants. The pocket is big enough for the EM10 II with pancake lens so I know it will fit the LX100 Thanks for the reply
