Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

Mark, the shutter dial on top of the camera doesn't have 1/50 but jumps from 1/30 to 1/60 to 1/125, as I understand you have to set it to 1/60 first and then use the dial on the back of the camera to finetune to select smaller increments of the shutter speed, like 1/50.

But what happens if you turn the camera off and on again, do you need to go true that procedure again or does the camera remember that it was set to 1/50 shutter?

In shutter priority mode you shift the shutter speed from 1/60th (top dial), say, to 1/50th using the front dial (much easier). And, yes, it sticks when you turn the camera off and on again.

Just for fun I made a brief video showing why you may need to shift the shutter speed from 1/60th:


The first clip was shot at 1/60th; the next at 1/50th.

Actually, to me this one is (so far) the most impressive -- lowlight is the most challenging test there is. Thanks for posting.

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

I agree with Peer. Just downloaded the original file and watched it on one of my 27-inch Dell U2713H monitors hooked up to my new Mac Pro. Whilst these monitors are sub 4K in resolution it sure looked very impressive for a camera of this price range to produce this kind of result :-)

The camera's image stabilisation seems really good too. Thanks again for posting/making the footage available Mark.

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

Can someone tell me if there is a remote control option on the LX100 or D-lux (leica version). I known there is a wifi possibillity, but is there some infrared of wired control (lanc) possibility. When there is, it is may be the perfect cam for my Octocopter.

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

Does this have clean HDMI out? Using the 1080p mode it might be a nice second or third camera for use as an establishing shot for broadcasting concerts if the 4k mode has limitations of run length.

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

Finally got to try the LX100 today although briefly. 2160/24p. Shutter was at 60, Aperture was at f/1.7 and ISO was set to 400. It was also on auto focusing but since the lens was set to f/1.7, you shouldn't expect it to be decent. As for white balance and anything else, I have no idea. Again, I only used it briefly at a show. Obvioustly the samples that Mark is giving is a better way to test the quality since he had far more time shooting than I did. I'll try to get this sample up on Vimeo possibly later today so people can download.

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

But it's still a good example how the autofocus performs and by the looks of it not good, not that I would expect it to perform flawless, especially at wide apertures but something to consider when you shoot this camera as focus might start to hunt when you least expect it.
