Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

The camera looks like a good B-Cam for my purposes, how does the zoom lens compare to a APS-C Sensor like a 550D, would the zoom range be similar to my 550D with the 24 - 70 I have or will it have a slighter longer range because of the crop?

The range is 24-75mm in stills mode. In video mode it is about 26-82mm.

The crop on your 550D makes your focal lengths longer. The 24-75mm (26-82mm in 4K mode) on the lx100 are adjusted for their 35mm equivalent. The actual focal length of the lx100 lens is more like a 10-30mm or something.

Oh ok, so even though it's 24mm - 75mm for 35mm equivalent, it doesn't take the crop of the Micro-four thirds factor like a GH4 would do with my 24 - 70mm.

Thanks although I actually ended up finding out on my own by accident. I was looking for something else in the menu and saw something that might resolve the issue I was having and after I set it to on, presto! That's good because I would have had such a big headache trying to record a lot of things in Sao Miguel, Azores and having to record first to see how my adjustments are and then go back and delete those parts in order to not have too much junk on the card.

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

Here's a couple of New Year's videos I shot.

This first one shows what was going on before midnight struck.


This one has the main fireworks event.


A third video was supposed to be uploaded by now but an adapter I was using for my laptop decided to stop working. I guess that'll have to be uploaded some other time.

I'm also shooting videos of the scenery in different places with that camera. I'm still getting shots and that should be uploaded after I get back to the US.

I have some videos up on Vimeo that will later be part of a longer review. All are currently available for download at 4K:

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

Liking the pictures out of the LX100 but the 15min record limit in 4K has meant that it's no good for half of my stuff (interviews & concerts) - annoying that Panasonic crippled a good little camera.

The limit is indeed a drawback, but Panasonic didn't "cripple" the camera as if they were conspiring to protect their pro cameras or something: it is an overheating issue resulting from keeping the camera small and compact and allowing 100Mbps given the limitations of current technology. The tiny Samsung Galaxy S5 has a 10-minute limitation for 4K video for exactly the same reason (even though a lower bitrate).

So again, does anyone know if the Leica Typ-109 indeed has a 30 minutes limit..?

Sounds like the type 109 also has a 15 minute limit from linked discussion below.

Re: Panasonic LX100 - 4K Video M43 Compact

I decided to also upload my Sao, Miguel, Azores video to Vimeo in case people wanted to download the 4K file. I took away over 3 minutes worth of footage just to sort of make it flow better. People can always watch the YouTube version to see everything.
