  1. Take away from highlight shadow in mode (lower contrast) with a 8bit codec. You loose the color information. Simply LX100 is a no video oriented device it laks a fundamental settings like a cine profile (aka gh4 for example) and a dedicated movie mode
  2. Exaclty The LX100 is a compact toy to replace smatrphone if you want a video or photo better than smartphones, or if you want a (limited) B roll cam. Other device FZ1000 and specially GH4 put in your hand a complete device pro device with the characteristic if you underline.
  3. For my opinion LX100 is overrated and overestimated. Nothing special come from a real users sample on the network like flikr and other site. The lens is soft at corner very soft and plenty of chromatic aberrations especially in buildings border on particular light conditions. The video is truly affected by annoying moire thing that there is no in GH4 or FZ1000 video samples. The readout of LX100 in 4K s no 1:1 for preserve the widest angle possible... This added to a problem discussed in previous posts suggests that LX100 is overrated product. Nothing more than compact premium toy not absolutely professional. This is my opinion.
  4. In conclusion LX100 is a device predominant oriented versus photo with a camera body that copy old layout film cameras. LX100 isn't a hybrid device it has a limited very limited video mode and lacks some essential video features. LX7 at least had a separate video mode. I don't buy a LX100
  5. For movie manual mode dial and a creative movie mode with separate settings from photo is essential. In LX100 lack for example a lever to switch by photo mode and video mode
  6. Exactly the LX100 does not put in the pockets, I might as well make it really professional. It took a no insert an audio jack for microphone, a screen tiltable, a ring of PASM control. A creative movie mode with manual CINE Styles, pedestal, and luminance. A sort of form factor like the Nikon P7800. Then the camera would dream even if it cost $ 1,000. So it's not, it's just a toy too compact, and not a device truly pro expecially for limited video versatility. LX100 is device well balanced only for photos.
  7. LX100 mistakes... No mode dial (LX7 had a mode dial), no separate creative movie mode replaced by annoying video "mode" (LX7 had it), lack of all CINE profile, lack of mic-in, no live HDMI monitoring, no tiltable screen... Clear panasonic choice to protect GH4... for me FZ1000 is a clear winner for video even if has a smaller sensor and "darker" lens
  8. Andrew a FZ1000 review. FZ1000 is a baby GH4 for video features. LX100 is ok faster lens ecc but lack a mic in, separate video mode, CINE profiles I wait a FZ1000 review and after i use my 900$ for one of this two cameras. I have only 900$ and i would make the perfect choice without any regret
  9. No HDMI output in LX100 is only for playback. FZ1000 and GH4 has monitoring
  10. If you not have the possibility to invest more than 2000$ in GH4 plus a good lens (for example the 12-35 2.8). Take, for a good compromise, the FZ1000 that has a good 1" sensor, a good fixed (relatively fast 2.8-4) all purpose lens and a lot of GH4 features like a luminance control, mic in, CINE styles, 1:1 sensor transfer in 4K, dedicated movie mode and a solid form factor with very similar control to GH4. The LX100 not has these features and has a "hanged movie mode" with a non 1:1 sensor readout directly to 4K stream (a pixel in sensor is a pixel on 4K stream) For a budget around 800$ take FZ1000 hand down. This camera impressed Andrew as he said in a previous thread or article.
  11. FZ1000 is truly a fantastic camera for video, and even more with this firmware update. LX100 lacks most of essential video features like CINE styles, control of luminance, separate video mode, flip-out screen and mic input. The look of FZ1000 is amazing solid and well constructed very similar in controls to GH4. The lens in very good and sharp in entire zoom range. I wait a review
  12. For a cost of 7-800 dollars, would highly recommend to have a video package really rich, the purchase of FZ1000. Excellent video quality, microphone in, presence of CINE styles, adjustable luminance, HDMI monitoring . Excellent lens, slower than the LX100 but still excellent, 1 inch BSI sensor really powerful. Form factor and controls very similar to GH4
  13. ;) hope hope No moire and alias in camaralabs test in interactive VLC 100% zoom
