Panasonic Announces Mirrorlesss Camera for Vlogging and Creative Video Content – Lumix G100
Panasonic today announced its latest mirrorless camera, the LUMIX G100. Panasonic LUMIX G100 is specially designed for vloggers and content creators with a super lightweight (weighs 412g with its 12-32mm kit lens) and compact body. The LUMIX G100 records smooth, high-resolution 4K or Full HD video in a variety of frame rates to meet every requirement. The new Panasonic G100 removes the need for bulky camera equipment while fantastic image, video and sound performance means you don’t need to compromise on quality. With a three-inch, high resolution free-angle touch screen and 3,680K dot viewfinder, the G100 makes it easy to compose high-quality images from any angle.
A 20.3MP MOS sensor without low pass filter offers superior image quality in a world where many content creators are using smartphones. Clear shots are possible even at night, or in dim conditions, with high sensitivity ISO 25600.The larger MFT sensor also helps to create beautifully blurred backgrounds for a professional look, while the Venus engine assures high-speed, high-performance image processing. A powerful 5-axis hybrid image stabilizer comes into play when making videos while moving and provides effective shake-suppression under a wide-range of situations.
For high-quality, spatial audio recording, the LUMIX G100 includes an integrated OZO Audio by Nokia sound system – the first mirrorless camera in the world to offer such an advanced feature. Three internal microphones record clear and vibrant sound with accuracy and precision. The G100 also tracks the voice of a detected person, automatically switching to the most appropriate sound mode for the situation. With this versatile audio technology, there’s no longer any need to invest in a separate external microphone.
The Video Selfie Mode allows for a simple and stress-free vlogging setup, starting up when the monitor is rotated forward and capturing the videographer and background in crisp focus without the need to make adjustments. Special video effects such as 2x/4×3 slow motion and 2x/4x/8x FHD quick motion are easy to create with quick access from on the mode dial. Time lapse and stop motion animation features are also available with interval shooting and image composition processing inside the camera. For advanced videographers, the G100 supports V-Log L recording.
Vloggers can also take advantage of the Frame Marker feature, which keeps check of your composition in various popular social-media optimized aspect ratios, while the REC Frame Indicator displays an eye-catching red frame to show at a glance when the camera is recording. The 4K Photo functionality captures split-second moments by just selecting the preferred frame out of a burst sequence. The Panasonic DC-G100 will go on sale in late July for approximately $749 with the ultra-compact 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 power zoom lens.
