Panasonic LUMIX LX100 II Compact Camera

Panasonic has upgraded its LX high-end compact camera series with the new Panasonic LUMIX LX100 II.

The LX100 design approach uses a built-in lens to permit a more compact body. It's designed as a large sensor compact camera with a built-in lens.

Note that it's not a Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable lens camera like the GX9 -- although it has the same size 4/3 inch sensor.

Basically, you can think of the LX100 II as the LX100 design updated with the GX9 sensor and engine. This new version adds a higher-res 17 MP sensor, boosts the specs, and enhances 4K photo modes.

It supports shooting high-res 4K video in 3840x2160 at 30p or 24p, plus capturing 4K Photo bursts at 30 fps in 8 MP equivalent resolution.

The LX100 II will be available in October for $999, and only in basic black.
