So I just heard from B&H that the Leica is now shipping:
Leica D-LUX (Typ 109) Digital Camera 18471 B&H Photo Video

Hence, I'm eager to know what differences there are between the Panny and the Leica.

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

I'm really liking this small fellow. My only concern was mounting it on a tripod and still being able to open the battery door. But for now a 15mm tube clamp does a perfect job to rigging it to my rods.

Tiny contribution to the world of the LX-100 users.

Thanks. No, just more travel for business. Separate trips. And now I have my favorite travel camera.

What do you answer each time you are visiting the country and customs asks you "business or pleasure?" :D
Looks like the lx100 is a great travelcompanion.

The Canon M was my favorite travel camera (not companion!). It was truly compact but has a big sensor (APS-C) so you could get great shallow dof shots just like those from big DSLRs, with nice bokeh. Full manual control of video and audio, including picture settings. Great Canon lenses. But, there was one big fault - low resolution, moire-filled video. Scenic shots with detail were obviously mushy. And the lack of a viewfinder meant it was difficult to hold steady while shooting.

The LX100 is equally compact with a largish sensor and full manual controls. But its 4K video is really high resolution, and it has a viewfinder. It is easier to use because of the multiple dials - no menu searching. I miss the touch screen of the EOS M a bit, but I am really using the viewfinder for all shots. And the stability is much better. It's a better travel camera.

Technology advances, except maybe for Canon...

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

Hi, I'm A DVI'er and I have a camera addiction... I REALLLY like cameras... and you can never have too many... said everyone here!

I'm really wishing that Sony would get on the stick and update firmware so the RX100 would shoot 4K, this LX100 looks mighty tempting! At least to my eye, this little beastie seems to produce better results than what I've seen from the other "consumer" Panasonics, with far less artifacting and odd blotches (though I saw some strangeness in a magenta region on the comparison of the LX, a GH and the AX100).

PS, is it "support" or enabling... eh, who cares?

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

I'm assuming this little beauty has no Image stabilization, I read the specs but could find no mention of this. Kinda defeats the purpose of walking around hand held....... is there something I don't know or is this not a concern?

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

Hi Mark -

Second time I've noticed some strange handling of "hot" magenta/pink color with clips you've posted from this camera (@35 and 40 seconds). The prior one was a comparison with the GH4 & AX100. Just curious if you've noticed it? Overall the camera seems to hold up fairly well, so the macroblocking with that color range really stuck out when I looked at the clips.

It seems to me, that at that point is transitions inserted in editor, so i think that is th reason for that.
