With a large sensor and fast 24-75mm lens, Panasonic's Lumix DMC-LX100M2 lets you get more creative with a compact. A 17MP sensor, LEICA optics, 4K movie capture with 4K Photo and intuitive analogue dials combine to give a level of image quality and artistic control usually found on more complex cameras.
The LX100M2's Micro 4/3" MOS sensor with no low-pass filter is 1.6 times the area of a 1-inch sensor and captures 17 megapixels of intricate detail. With such a large sensor for a compact camera it offers low light performance, saturation and scope for defocused bokeh.
The LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILIX Lens boasts f/1.7 brightness at wide angle and f/2.8 at telephoto, alongside high shutter speed for great photography in low light conditions. It makes it ideal for all types of photography from dynamic wide-angle landscapes to sharp, artistic portraits. Power Optical Image Stabilisation keeps your shots sharp and crisp in all conditions.
Its analogue controls include aperture ring, focus ring, shutter speed and exposure composition dial, for instinctive and satisfying manual control, putting creative control at your fingertips.
Large Rear Touch Screen
The 3" rear screen offers easy touch operability with familiar functions like touch autofocus, zoom in and touch shutter.
4K Video, 4K Photo
Shoot movies in 4K Resolution, four times the level as detail as Full HD. And Panasonic's 4K Photo feature lets you select that perfect split second moment from 30 frames per second burst shooting, saving it as an 8MP equivalent hi-res image.
The Post Focus feature lets you select the point of focus after you've taken the shot. Or adjust the depth of field after shooting with Focus Stacking.
Use the Live ViewFinder when you want to frame with precision, delivering approximately 100% shot reproduction.

Enlarges video captured by the optical zoom and makes it seem even closer. This involves zooming in on an existing image, so it gives slightly less detailed results than an equivalent optical zoom
