Display and built-in EVF

The 3-inch 921,000-dot display (640 x 480 pixels) on the camera back is not tiltable and is not a touchscreen.

But it does have a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) positioned at the top left. It has a high resolution of 2.74 million dots.


 

Controls and button layout

There is no mode dial. Instead, there is a shutter speed dial and an exposure compensation dial at the top right. An aperture ring and manual focus ring are on the lens barrel.

On the left side of the lens barrel and close to the body is an autofocusing selector switch; above it, an aspect ratio switch.

On the back, a clickable wheel dial on the right side lets you adjust settings quickly and offers short cuts for changing ISO, white balance, autofocusing points and drive mode.

Build and feel

The LX100's aluminium chassis gives it a nice solid feel enhanced by a prominent rubberised front grip and contoured thumb rest.

Image sensor

Panasonic uses a 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds (MFT) image sensor in its interchangeable mirrorless cameras.

It is about twice the size of a 1-inch image sensor and five times larger than the 1/1.7-inch image sensors found in most compact cameras.

But the LX100 is not using the entire image sensor. It will yield only 12.8-megapixel images because of the cropping for different aspect ratios - 4:3, 16:9, 3:2 and 1:1.

Lens

The LX100 has a 24-75mm f/1.7-f/2.8 Leica lens with an optical image stabiliser.

It uses a nine-aperture diaphragm that is supposed to produce a smooth circular bokeh effect - that deliberate blurring of all but the main object of the image.
