The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX100 features 16.8MP 4/3″ Multi-Aspect MOS Sensor and Venus Engine Image Processor on the other hand Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ1000 features 20.1MP 1″ High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and Venus Engine Image Processor, take a look at the Major Specification Below.
Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX100 vs. Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ1000 Specification Comparison Table.
|Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX100||Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ1000|
Sensor: The Panasonic DMC-LX100 is designed with a 16.8MP four-thirds image sensor which results in producing high resolution images with superior quality which can further be processed and cropped. While the Panasonic FZ1000 features a 20.1MP 1” sensor which results in producing high quality images. With a slight big sensor the Panasonic DMC-LX100 will capture more light while creating the images, therefore the quality of image will be notably high.
Optical Zoom: Offering an amazing optical zoom range of 16x the FZ1000 allows user to take clear images of the far located subjects without taking the camera closer to it. However the LX100 offers a optical zoom range of 3.1x which is much less in comparison to that of FZ1000.
Aperture range: Better aperture range allows the user to control the amount of light used by the camera while creating the image. Therefore with a low and better aperture range of f1.7-f2.8 the LX100 leads the comparison.
Optical Image stabilization: The FZ1000 offers a hybrid optical image stabilization that reduces the appearance of camera shake across five distinct axes. Whereas, LX100 offers the regular optical image stabilization which is considered to be less effective than the FZ1000.
Auto focus: Both the cameras feature the same Contrast detect autofocus system with 49 AF points. The contrast detect autofocus system fine tunes the focused area.
ISO: Both the cameras have the same ISO range. Therefore while working in low lightning situation both of them will produce same quality images with high clarity and sharpness.
Shutter speed: Both the cameras offer a shutter speed of 60 sec 1/16000 sec which allows them to take clear and sharp images of even fast moving objects.
Top shooting speed: The FZ1000 can take up to 12 shots continuously in a second while the LX100 can take up to 11 shots continuously in a second.
Video: Both FZ1000 and LX100 are capable to record Ultra HD 3840 x2160 videos recording @30fps and full HD 1080p videos recording @60fps. Videos are saved in MP4 or AVCHD formats.
Display: The FZ1000 comes with a 3.0″ 921k-Dot Free-Angle LCD Monitor which is used for monitoring the subjects and for sharp and clear playback of images as well as videos. The free angle LCD helps the photographer to monitor the subject at different angles and position without any movement in the camera or in the photographer’s body. On the other hand LX100 comes with a 3.0″ 921k-Dot LCD Monitor.
Viewfinder: Both LX100 and FZ1000 are build with an electronic viewfinder which allows the photographer to monitor the subject even at the brightest conditions.
WI-FI: Both the cameras feature WI-FI with NFC which allows them to connect with any iOS or Android device, for wireless image sharing. The linked devices can also be used as a remote control for the cameras. NFC allows it to connect to any device by just tapping both of them.
Battery: LX100 can takes 300 shots in one battery cycle whereas FZ1000 can take 360 shots in one battery cycle.
Dimension: LX100 is smaller than FZ1000
Wight: LX100 weighs less than FZ1000
Verdict: The LX100 features bigger sensor on the other hand the FZ1000 feature a 16X optical zoom lens with bright aperture range, fast continuous shooting speed and a option to record 4K video…. and even by having larger sensor size the LX100 is not showing and significant difference in the image quality…
