Several months after introducing the G7 and G85 Lumix camera, Panasonic has now unveiled the Lumix LX100 II, a compact camera but with large sensors like that on the Sony RX100Vi. The Panasonic Lumix LX100 II will retail for as much as $999 (approx. Rs 70,000).
The Mark II model of Lumix LX100 features a relatively larger 17-megapixel Four Thirds MOS sensor, which is an upgrade over last year’s 12.8-megapixel sensor. The device packs in the old 24-75mm-equivalent f/1.7-2.8 lens on a nine-blade aperture, totalling as much as 21.77 megapixels, which will result in a 17MP equivalent image on a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Similar to its predecessor, the LX100 II boasts of max AF-S shooting speed of 11 fps on the 2.7M dot wide-screen electronic viewfinder and support for 4K video recording. Panasonic also allows users to capture 4K photos as 30fps, meaning you’re never missing out on action shooting.
On the outside, the LX100 II features a slightly sturdier grip design and the camera is now accompanied by a 3-inch 1.2M dot touchscreen. The camera now also connects via Bluetooth for low-power image transfer to smartphones and can also be USB-charged from a power bank or a laptop.
