Panasonic DC-LX100 II
The premium compact of the LX100 series in the second generation has not gone far from the role model in appearance, but has seriously increased the “muscles” in the technical part. The 2018 model is “built” on a large Micro 4/3 image sensor with a resolution of 17 MP, devoid of an anti-aliasing filter in its design. The sensor, along with the processor, was borrowed from the ambitious Panasonic DC-GX9 mirrorless camera, thanks to which the digital compact shows excellent results when shooting at high ISOs (200-25600 units) and takes a solid overclock when shooting in bursts (11 fps with locked focus).
Of course, the Panasonic DC-LX100 II supports shooting in the "raw" RAW format and can write 4K videos (3840x2160 pixels at 30 fps). Of the branded "buns" of the model, the functions of post-focus (selecting the zone of sharpness in the finished image) and Focus Steaking (allows you to edit the depth of field) were brought up. The camera is equipped with a fast 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 optics with a 9-blade aperture for spectacular bokeh. The display of the compact is still fixed, but from the innovations he got support for touch controls. The camera also received an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.7 million dots. The battery life of the camera is estimated by the ability to shoot about 340 shots on a single charge of a standard battery.

Panasonic DC-LX100 II is a compact for those who know a lot about photography. In the small body of this camera, they somehow managed to install a large Micro 4/3 image sensor, familiar to many from Olympus and Panasonic mirrorless cameras.
Frame aspect ratio
The full resolution of the model's matrix is 21.77 MP, but only that part of it, which is inscribed in the bayonet flange, is used for shooting. This is done for the sake of flexibility in choosing the aspect ratio of the frame without losing the dimension of the image diagonally. The photographer is free to choose between 3:2, 4:3, 16:9 and 1:1 aspect ratios. The maximum resolution of 17 MP is achieved when the aspect ratio is set to 4:3.
Another strong point of the compact is the built-in lens with f / 1.7-2.8 aperture and an optical stub on board. Its equivalent focal length range is 24-75mm. The lens body has aperture and zoom control rings, as well as two mechanical selectors for selecting the focus mode and the aforementioned aspect ratio of the frame. Speaking about the control of the camera in general, it should be noted a whole bunch of customizable Fn buttons (5 physical and 5 virtual), convenient shutter speed and exposure compensation dials, a multifunctional navipad with a rotary selector.
The display of the model is still fixed, but with support for touch input. A good alternative would be an OLED viewfinder with a resolution of 2.7 million dots. The camera supports high-speed photography in RAW (up to 11 fps), writes 4K videos with a frame rate of 30 fps and demonstrates decent image quality at the output. It will definitely surpass the mass of colleagues in the mirrorless shop with whale optics and will give real pleasure from the filming process. A bonus to the owner of the model is the modest size of the digital compact.
