PANASONIC ANNOUNCES THE LUMIX DMC-LX100

Features New 4/3-inch MOS Large Sensor, F1.7 LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX lens and 4K Video Recording Capability

MISSISSAUGA, ON (September 15, 2014) – Panasonic Canada Inc. is proud to introduce the 6th generation of its world-renowned LX series of high-end compact cameras, the DMC-LX100. With a 4/3-inch High Sensitivity MOS Sensor, the camera is designed to inspire creativity. The DMC-LX100 is not just a successor to the DMC-LX7 but is also reminiscent of the DMC-LC1 – Panasonic’s first full manual compact camera released in 2004.

LX100s-Slanted-silver-600

To achieve even higher picture quality and multi-aspect capability, the DMC-LX100 incorporates Panasonic’s 4/3-inch high sensitivity MOS sensor.  The powerful sensor and F1.7 lens create a shallow depth of field, which enables subjects to stand out of the background with rich stereoscopic effect.  By keeping the resolution to 12.8-megapixels1, the amount of secured light is enough to improve S/N ratio, making it possible to capture clear images with minimum noise even when shooting at a high ISO.  The Venus Engine is also newly developed to feature multiple noise reduction systems such as Multi Process NR, Random Filter and Aperture Filter, to achieve high colour reproduction and high image quality with natural description.

The newly developed LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX lens (35mm camera equivalent: 24-75mm) boasts F1.7-F2.8 high speed and high descriptiveness in detail and resolution even in the corners of images.  Together with the large MOS Sensor, it also produces stunningly beautiful image defocus.  In addition, the newly adopted nine-blade aperture diaphragm helps produce bokeh with smooth, circular shape.  The versatile zoom range of 24-75mm (35mm camera equiv.) is suitable for wide-ranging photography uses – from snap to portrait.  Notably, landscapes can be captured in dynamic 24mm ultra wide angle in any aspect (4:3, 3:2 or 16:9) thanks to the multi-aspect sensor.

Panasonic Announces Availability and Price of Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7 ASPH

Wed March 26, 2014

Panasonic announced that the LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm/F1.7 ASPH. will be available in the U.S. in May with an MSRP of US $599.99.

PRESS RELEASE

LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm / F1.7 ASPH.

High Speed Prime Wide-Angle Lens

NEWARK, NJ (March 26, 2014) – Panasonic is proud to announce the LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm / F1.7 ASPH interchangeable lens for the Micro Four Thirds format.  (35 mm camera equivalent: 30 mm). The new LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm / F1.7 ASPH. allows photographers to capture images with beautiful defocus features produced by F1.7 lens. The SUMMILUX 15mm lens is very compact and lightweight.  The lens will be available in the U.S. at www.shop.panasonic.com and photo specialty retailers.

The new lens system is comprised of nine elements in seven groups and uses three aspherical lenses. The aspherical lenses suppress spherical aberration and distortion effectively while realizing downsizing of the lens unit. Panasonic’s Nano Surface Coating technology is adopted to minimize the reflection at entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in a super clear picture with a dramatic reduction of ghost and flare. The lens incorporates a superior inner focus system, which enables excellent resolution and contrast from close-up to infinity. The inclusion of a newly developed stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and video recording. Notably the performance of Auto Focus (AF) is by far superior to the phase-difference AF when a fast lens with smaller aperture value is used. It is also compatible with the sensor drive at max.240 fps to take maximum advantage of cameras with high-speed AF when mounted on the cameras of LUMIX G system.
