A pocket-sized powerhouse, Panasonic's Lumix DMC-LX10 Digital Camera offers outstanding performance through the use of a 20.1MP High Sensitivity MOS Sensor that can deliver sharp stills, UHD 4K video, and more. Combine this with a compact design that offers a 3" LCD touchscreen that tilts up 180° for selfies, and you have an almost ideal camera for everyday carry.

In order to provide sharp, richly detailed images, the LX10 features a fast Leica DC Vario-Summilux f/1.4-2.8 lens with a versatile 3x zoom range. This optic features a 35mm equivalent wide-angle to telephoto range of 24-72mm, making it useful in a range of different situations. Also, the 20.1MP sensor furthers the camera's abilities with an extended sensitivity range up to ISO 25600 and continuous shooting at up to 50 fps with an electronic shutter and 10 fps with the mechanical shutter.

The LX10 is equipped with a 5-axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ system for shake-free images and a 49-area autofocus system that will make sure your images are tack sharp. Hybrid shooters will appreciate the inclusion of high-quality UHD 4K video recording in the LX10. It can record at 30 or 24 fps at 100 Mbps using the MP4 format. Also, Panasonic leverages the power of this technology to provide advanced 4K PHOTO and 4K Post Focus features.

Looking at the svelte metal exterior, users will appreciate an ergonomic grip and design. The LX10 has a physical lens control ring to help provide more tactile control over certain settings. Shooters who are always on the go can charge up their camera through the USB port. The camera is also boosted by the inclusion of numerous other features, such as focus stacking and Wi-Fi connectivity, making this a very capable imaging tool.

20.1MP 1" High Sensitivity MOS Sensor
The large 20.1MP 1" High Sensitivity MOS Sensor enables high-resolution still image and 4K video recording with native sensitivity to ISO 12800, which can be further expanded to ISO 25600. The two technologies also contribute to a marked reduction in noise through the use of Multi Process NR, Random Filter, and Aperture Filter systems to realize consistent color fidelity and image clarity. The sensor and processor combination also avail notable speed throughout the camera, including the ability to record up to 50 fps using an electronic shutter, 10 fps with a mechanical shutter, or 6 fps with a mechanical shutter and continuous AF. Benefitting a hybrid workflow, users can switch between recording 4K movies and still imagery instantly and there is also the ability to make in-camera 8MP screen grabs from 4K movies.
Leica DC Vario-Summilux f/1.4-2.8 Zoom Lens
In order to capture sharp, detailed images in a vast variety of shooting conditions, the LX10 is equipped with a Leica DC Vario-Summilux lens that has a versatile wide-angle to telephoto 24-72mm equivalent zoom range. This lens features an 11 element in 9 group design that incorporates 4 aspherical lenses with dual-sided aspherical surfaces, two aspherical ED lenses, and one UHR lens to minimize aberrations and maximize performance. The lens also features a fast maximum aperture of f/1.4-2.8 that allows photographers to create images with a shallow depth of field and work more effectively in low light. Additionally, it has optical image stabilization to reduce the impact of camera shake.
UHD 4K Video Recording
Benefitting from the 1" MOS image sensor, The LX10 is able to record UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) video at 30p with a high bit rate of 100 Mbps in the MP4 file format. Full HD 1080 video can also be recorded—at 60p, 30p, 24p, or 60i—in the AVCHD format, as well as Full HD and HD formats in the MP4 format. When recording 4K video, use of a UHS-3 memory card is recommended and continuous recording up to 15 minutes is possible. For Full HD 60p recording users can record continuously for up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds while Full HD 30p video can be recorded without a time limit. A built-in stereo microphone records audio in either AAC or Dolby formats. Users can also use the micro-HDMI port to output 4K video to an external monitor or recorder.
4K PHOTO Capabilities
Besides video, the 4K capabilities also permit recording 8MP stills at 30 fps in a trio of ways:
  • 4K Burst: Just as with video recording, this mode will allow you to continuously record 8MP images at 30 fps for up to 15 minutes, making it ideal for instances where you need a fast frame rate in order to capture the best moment.
  • 4K Pre-Burst: This mode is ideal for times when you're unsure of the critical moment to press the shutter button and will record 8MP images at 30 fps one second prior to and one second after pressing the shutter button in order to give you 60 frames to choose from.
  • 4K Burst (S/S): This mode most closely follows the 4K video recording process, and allows you to playback your video, pause at the chosen moment, and use the shutter button to mark a chosen frame from the video and save it as a single 8MP frame.
  • Post Focus and Focus Stacking
    Another attribute of the 4K capabilities is a unique focusing method called Post Focus. This function records imagery as a 4K MP4 file at 30 fps and shifts the specific point of focus throughout the burst shooting in order to offer a range of distinct focusing ranges to choose from. During playback, via the camera's touchscreen, you can then tap the specific region of the image you wish to be in focus and an 8MP JPEG file will be created. Multiple individual files with different points of focus can be created from the original burst, and focusing assist functions can also be used to gain even more precise control over the specific in-focus region.

    A built-in focus stacking feature lets you program the capture of a sequence of photos with shifting focus. This technique allows you to utilize the highest performing aperture as well as increase the depth of field in your final image.
    5-Axis HYBRID Optical Image Stabilization+
    Helping to compensate for camera shake when recording HD movies, 5-axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ is an advanced image stabilization system that minimizes the appearance of blur when shooting one-handed video. It corrects for five types of camera shake that commonly affect more dynamic movement types that occur while moving when recording.

    Lumix DMC-LX10 Digital Camera is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Backup This is my new museum/concert/restaurant/backup camera. My ankle gun in case of emergencies, when my bigger interchangeable lens system locks up on me, runs out of juice or just isn't appropriate to lug somewhere. It takes a while to get used to the tight concentration of controls, but then it's as second-nature as the three LX models I've owned before this. I miss a viewfinder sometimes, and have literally stuck this in my eye without thinking, but the trade-off is worth it, in terms of bang for the size. I do recommend a strap system with this, though, neck, wrist, finger or whatever -- there's not a lot to that right-end grip an it's too easy to fumble and drop in the wrong circumstance. Also, a second battery is pretty much a must ... but you knew that, and that's what I've always liked about you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Easy to use and carry, with great results. Very happy. The menu system is logical, which is rare for a camera. The screen flips up, which is very helpful. It doesn't flip down but it doesn't need to. If you want to hold the camera overhead just flip the screen up and hold the camera upside down. You can rotate the image in camera later to get it right side up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic - loaded with features - good in low light - 4k yes a fantastic ultra compact camera - loaded with features that cameras like the Canon G7X/m2 and Sony RX100/m2/m3/m4/m5 do not have - like 4k Burst Mode - to capture just that moment - the Post Focus mode - and Stacked Focus mode - The GX7/m2 do not have 4k - the Sony RX100m/4/5 have 4k but have serious overheating issues and overheat at 3-5min in warm weather - besides both have a Max 5min clip time - the LX10 has no overheating issues and 15min clip time - LX10 has F1.4 at 24mm - and a 1inch sensor from Sony resulting in very decent low light performance for a 1 inch sensor camera - The new RX100m5 did not improve in quality or low light performance over RX100m4 - The LX10 has a Flip LCD so ideal for selfies - as the RX100 models do not - the Canon G7X /m2 models do have it as well - and the G7X/m2 have a bit longer reach of 24-100mm vs 24-72mm - I own the G7X and in comparison I find the images sharper on the LX10 - The LX10 is loaded with features - where as the Canon G7X/m2 do not have nearly as many features - The RX100/m4/m5 models sit in the middle as far as features with the LX10 having the most - like Touch LCD and Touch Shutter which the RX100 models do not have - Yes the new RX100m5 has Phase detect so will give a bit better focusing on fast moving subjects - but the LX10 has DFD which makes it super fast in stills and low light focusing and quite decent in tracking focus - The RX100m/3/4/6 have the pop up EVF that yes can be handy in super sunny weather for composing - but then again the Sony models cost lot more - over $300 - and in those super sunny situations I just flip the camera and tilt the LCD - so the camera on top provides a bit of shade - So yes the LX10 - Canon G7X/m2 and the RX100m4/5 are all good little cameras - I just think the Flip LCD for selfies - the F1.4 and the 4k 15min clips with no overheating issues and the 4k Burst mode and the 5 soft Fn buttons and the nice B/W modes a winner - Yes LX10

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lumix LX10 not up to standard. I have owned the Lumix LX3, the LX5 and the Lx7 and more recently the LX 100. All of these cameras were great for the price. So, when the LX10 came out with double the pixels I thought that is the way to go. What a dissapointment. The camera is light and cheap with a small lens - nothing like the beautiful Leica lens on the LX100. There is no external control for exposure like the LX 100. Overall the unit just feels cheap and less substantial than the other cameras. I only took a few pictures that did not seem beyond the previous cameras before sending it back to B&H. (All of my other cameras were purchased from B&H)
    Date published: 2016-12-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and more compact than LX100. Wide aperture enables beautiful low light photography. Built-in lens cover and smaller more compact body than my LX100. I do not miss the viewfinder as i seldom use it on the lx100. The screen is bright enough in broad daylight. Screen measures 3 x 2.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 8 months of Usage Lens & Shutter Failure We bought this as our primary camera for our 1 year travel journey around the World. After 8 months and 15,000 photos, the lens & shutter have failed and we get a system error message. I was satisfied with the quality of the photos we were getting but the camera started to give us problems about a month ago. Now it has completed failed and will not open. I have to navigate through Panasonic's Warranty information from Australia, I hope I can get it serviced through their warranty from the other side of the World

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice upgrade from the LX7 with a few Negatives I've had the LX3,5 and 7 and every upgrade was a big improvement. It holds true for the LX10 with a few minor exceptions. Battery Life is definitely shorter, I'm getting almost 100 fewer shots per charge. But no big deal has I always have more than one battery. No External Battery Charger Included: This is a big pain, as you have to charge the battery while it is in the camera. So no charging of a back up battery while the camera is in use. Panasonic....REALLY! Solution, buy the aftermarket Battery Charger with additional batteries. I purchased the Big Mike's Charger and 2 Pack of Batteries for $21.00 and it works great. The Batteries are as good the Panasonic. The only upside is you can charge the Battery with USB. No Hot Shoe - So no option for adding an Electronic View Finder - Not a big deal for me. Shorter Telephoto - only 72MM equivalent as compared to the LX7 90mm - ( Still better than the Sony RX100 at 70mm) This is too bad as I've used the full 90mm during my travels often so I will miss that extra reach. Lastly, the Body, although it is very well made and solid, I miss the rubber grip on the right side. Now it is the whole metal body which for me makes it a bit harder to grip firmly, it feels more slippery. So I'll use extra care when shooting in wet or awkward angles. Ok now why it's worth the upgrade: Sensor is twice the size, giving me an incredible image resolution of 5472 X 3648 in a pocket camera Screen is now a Tilt TouchScreen w/ higher resolution - Almost 15% better 4 K Video and 4K Photo implemented perfectly WiFi Extended ISO to 25.600 49 Focus Points vs 23 Better Flash Range AE Bracketing - Great of HDR Moved the Aspect Ratio to the Settings and off of the lens. I prefer this as it was to easy to change the Aspect Ratio by accident with it being on the lens, happened more than I like to admit. Overall a big improvement, I am very glad I made the upgrade.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine camera that fits in a pocket I was looking for a good camera that would fit in my pocket for my daily walks and also for cross country skiing and summer hikes. This is it. The files are excellent. Having used other Lumix cameras, it's been easy to learn. I haven't tried the video yet as that is not a priority for me. I'd recommend it for someone that wants a high end point and shoot camera.
