The Panasonic DMC-LX10 is an advanced large-sensor point-and-shoot camera. Key features include:
20.1MP Sensor. This large 1.0-inch 20.1MP sensor offers great low-light performance with a normal ISO range of 200-25,600.
Fast-Aperture Normal-Range Zoom. The 24-72mm f/1.4-2.8 equivalent lens (post-sensor crop) covers the wide to short-tele/portrait focal range with a fast, variable aperture. This affords both low-light shooting and shallow depth-of-field capability.
Hybrid Optical Image Stabilization System. The five-axis Hybrid Optical Image Stabilization system minimizes the appearance of blur when shooting video.
4K UHD and Full HD Video. The LX10 offers 3840 × 2160 4K Ultra HD video recording at 30 or 24 fps in MP4 format. When you don’t need 4K, you can also capture Full HD 1080p video at 60 or 30 fps in MP4 or AVCHD formats. There’s a built-in stereo mic for quick audio capture, but there’s no external mic input so you’ll have to externally record higher-quality audio. Please note that 4K video capture requires a UHS-I Class 3 or faster memory card.
4K Photo. Use one of three recording options to capture 8MP stills at 30 fps to find exactly the right moment of a scene.
Focus After the Fact. Post Focus captures a burst of images at 30 fps through the lens’s full focus range. On playback, simply tap the portion of the screen you want in focus and the camera will create an 8MP still.
Tilting LCD. You can use the 1.04m-dot 3.0-inch rear LCD for image composition and review. It’ll rotate 180°, making it useful for vloggers and for taking those selfies that the kids keep raving about these days.
Manual Controls. There’s a physical lens-control ring that gives you control over common settings and there’s also a physical aperture ring give you tactile control over exposure.
Other Notable Features. Built-in Wi-Fi provides wireless control and viewing options via the free Panasonic Image App. Images are recorded to SDHC/XC memory cards (remember, UHS-I Class 3 or faster for 4K video), and the rechargeable battery is rated for 260 shots per charge.
