About this item

The Panasonic LUMIX LX100 is a compact zoom camera designed with the enthusiast and advanced photographer in mind. For those shooters who are looking for a very capable camera with a small profile—especially when compared to a DSLR—the LX100 hits the mark, and it does so without compromise in quality. With its Four Thirds sensor, its 24–75mm focal range, and its Leica f/1.7–2.8 lens, the LX100 has received much high praise. In fact, DP Review awarded the camera its highest ever score in its camera class and called it “one of the best photographers’ cameras on the market and probably the best zoom compact ever made.” In addition, the inclusion of 4k video and 4k photo mode put the LX100 in a class by itself.The Enthusiast’s Guide to the Panasonic LUMIX LX100 is written to help you make the most of this highly capable advanced camera. The basic operation of the LX100 is fairly straightforward for those photographers with an understanding of exposure and composition—adjusting the aperture and shutter speed are simple enough. But there are many next-generation features, functions, and customizable setups that even a seasoned photographer might overlook or not take full advantage of—features that, when implemented, could make all the difference in getting the shot. Panasonic LUMIX Luminary Rob Knight takes you well beyond the manual and shares his real-world experience with the LX100. Rob doesn’t spend time rehashing the basics of the exposure triangle; instead, he digs deeply into the LX100’s menus and capabilities and tells you how to use and set up the features that will allow you to get the best shots with the camera and have the most fun doing it.Some of the topics covered include:
  • The best focus modes and settings based on the shooting situation
  • Customizable Function (Fn) button and Control Dial options
  • In-Camera RAW processing
  • Shooting in Silent mode
  • Multiple exposures and panoramas
  • 4k video and photo modes
  • WiFi settings and features
  • And much more!
Rob also discusses the coolest and best features of the LX100 that truly make a difference in how you use the camera, such as back-button focus, the pros and cons of electronic vs. mechanical shutter, shooting remotely with Panasonic’s Image App, how to customize the camera so it feels like you have a kit bag of prime lenses rather than a continuous zoom, and using external flash.Finally, Rob includes his favorite camera settings, setups, and suggestions for specific shooting situations, such as street photography, travel photography, macro photography, and time-lapse photography.
