New Mirrorless Camera for Vloggers, The Lumix G100!

  By Ryley Smith


Panasonic Lumix has just released the newest Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera, created specifically for Vloggers!
The Lumix G100! Perfectly designed to create versatile video content, this camera is a dream come true for Vloggers. With beautifully high-quality video and sound packed into a surprisingly compact and lightweight body, the G100 is perfect for capturing your creative story!

The Lumix G100 records in stunningly high-quality video, with QFHD 4K videos in 3840×2160 resolution at 30p or 24p in MP4 and Full-HD at 60p. The G100 also has a powerful image stabilizer, making it easy for ‘walk-and-talk’ style videos to be shot without the worry of distracting camera shake. The image stabilization can also be extended to a wide range of video situations, thanks to the 5-Axis Hybrid I.S. (Image Stabilizer) which provides effective shake suppression.

Appealing to Vloggers of all styles, the G100 has a 3.0-inch free-angle rear monitor with 1 840K-dots. This high resolution makes it easy to compose not only selfies but also shots from either a high or low angle. This, in addition to the new Video Selfie Mode, makes it super easy for users to capture both themselves and the background, in crisp focus, without needing to adjust the aperture each time. The G100 also has convenient shooting assist functions, which allow the Frame Maker to check the composition during recording in various popular aspect ratios such as 16:9, 4:3, 1:1, 4:5, 5:4 and 9:16. The REC Frame Indicator also displays an eye-catching red frame so that videographers can recognize whether the camera is recording or not at a glance.

The next most important thing for Vlogging is high-quality sound. This is why Panasonic integrated OZO Audio by Nokia for the first time in a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera. This gives the G100 the ability for universal playback and shareability across the world’s most popular social media platforms. With clear accuracy and precision, three microphones record vibrant audio when the most suitable mode is selected. This technology combination of Nokia OZO Audio and Panasonic provides a Tracking mode that keeps tracking the voice of the target subject. Auto mode also automatically switches the Tracking mode and Surround mode, so you don’t need to invest in a separate external microphone. 

The Lumix G100 boasts a 20.3MP MOS Sensor with a maximum ISO of 2 5600, allowing beautiful background defocusing and clear images day or night. The Venus Engine, dedicated for image processing, assures high-speed, high-performance image processing. It also can shoot an impressive 4x (at 30p)/2x slow and 8x/4x/2x quick FHD motion footage in addition to Time Lapse shots. More advanced features include V-LogL recording support, as well as the ability for users to use the LUT (Look Up Table) of their choice on the recorded V-LogL footage on a PC/MAC to make a special video clip that has subtle colours and moods.

For those who want more than just video, the Lumix G100 has a 3 680K-dot equivalent center-aligned viewfinder which excels in the performance and functions for photo shooting. Taking advantage of 4K technology, users can enjoy 4K photo shots. They can also pick their favourite image from a burst file sequence, so they can find the perfect candid shot.

Vloggers will also appreciate that the Lumix G100 has integrated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi® 2.4GHz connectivity, which allows for more flexible shooting and instant image sharing. By pressing the dedicated upload button the videos and photos will quickly transfer to any smartphone that has Panasonic’s LUMIX Sync app. Users can also use their smartphone as a remote control for remote video recording and photo shooting. 

With its compact design, the G100 weighs only 412g with the LUMIX G VARIO 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 lens. By adding the new Tripod Grip DMW-SHGR1, it makes the Lumix G100 the ultimate Vlogging camera!
