The LUMIX DMC-LX100 with New Micro Four Thirds MOS Sensor and F1.7 LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX Lens

Featuring 4K Video Recording Capability

NEWARK, NJ (September 15, 2014) – Panasonic is proud to introduce the DMC-LX100 (LX100) with Micro Four Thirds High Sensitivity MOS Sensor for the 6th generation model of Panasonic’s world-renowned LX high-end compact camera series. The new LX100 is not just a successor to the DMC-LX7 but a jump-up that even inherits the DNA of DMC-LC1 – the Panasonic’s first full manual compact camera released in 2004.  The LX100 will be available at www.shop.panasonic.com and valued channel partners at the end of October.

To achieve even higher picture quality and multi-aspect capability, the LX100 incorporates the Micro Four Thirds High Sensitivity MOS sensor. It lets subjects stand out of the background impressively with a rich stereoscopic effect. By keeping the resolution at 12.8-megapixels*1, the amount of light is enough to improve the S/N ratio, making it possible to capture clear image with minimum noise even when shot at high ISO. The Venus Engine is also newly developed to feature multiple noise reduction systems such as Multi Process NR, Random Filter and Aperture Filter, to achieve high color reproduction and high image quality with natural description.

A newly developed LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX lens (35mm camera equivalent: 24-75mm) boasts F1.7-F2.8 high speed and high descriptiveness in detail and resolution to each corner. It also produces stunningly beautiful defocus together with the large MOS Sensor. In addition, newly adopted 9-blade aperture diaphragm help produce bokeh with a smooth, circular shape. The versatile zoom range of 24-75mm (35mm camera equiv.) is suitable for wide-ranging photography to portraits. Notably, landscapes can be captured in dynamic 24mm ultra wide angle in any 4:3, 3:2 or 16:9 aspect thanks to the multi-aspect sensor.

The LX100 integrates a LVF (Live View Finder) with 2764K-dot equivalent high resolution and approx.100% color reproduction. This 16:9 Wide Screen LVF boasts approx.1.39x / 0.7x (35mm camera equiv.) magnification and 100% field of view. A variety of advanced functions are equipped with DMC-LX100 to spur potential of advanced photographers. It allows direct, intuitive control with dedicated rings and dials such as aperture ring, control ring, shutter speed dial or exposure compensation dial.

The LX100 is capable of smooth, high quality video recording not only in Full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p (NTSC) AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4 / H.264) format or MP4 at 60p (NTSC) but also in 4K (QFHD 4K: 3840×2160, at 30 fps(NTSC) in MP4). With this 4K video recording capability, Panasonic is proposing a new way of photo creation called “4K Photo”.  By grabbing a 3840×2160 8-megapixel equivalent image from the 4K video footage it is possible to capture the spur-of-the-moment which is often missed in still photography. This functionality is now easier with the newly added Hybrid Photography 4K Photo mode.

The LX100 is also superior in response. Featuring newly combined DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology made famous in the LUMIX GH4, not only accuracy but also speed is improved to achieve Light Speed AF of approx. 0.14 sec*2 to capture fleeting shooting photo opportunities. High speed burst shooting can be shot at 11 fps in full resolution. It also complies with max.1/4,000(mechanical) and 1/16,000(electronic) high speed shutter speed.

For more creative freedom, Creative Control (Filter), Creative Panorama and Photo Style are available. Notably, aperture and shutter speed can be adjusted while applying Creative Control filter, to further inspire the photographers’ creativity. The LX100 integrates Wi-Fi® connectivity (IEEE 802.11 b/g/n) with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology camera to offer more flexible shooting experience and instant image sharing with easy operation. More practical functions including Focus Peaking, Level Gauge, WB (white balance) bracket, highlight/shadow control are also equipped. Now LX100 can develop RAW images into JPEG in camera. A compact external flash (GN7/ISO100・m, GN10/ ISO200・m) that goes with the body color of the camera is bundled to be mounted on the hot shoe.

While the interchangeable lens camera should pursue performance and functionality, compact cameras are more intuitive tools that simply drive people to photography. Combining the best-possible components with state-of-the-art Panasonic’s digital/optical technologies, LX100 is the one and only digital premium compact camera of this age that surely satisfies users not only with the high picture quality but also with a host of advanced functions and operational ease.

*1 Sensor total pixel is 16.8-megapixel.

*2 Based on the CIPA standard, when using Live View Finder.

Press Release

Samsung introduces the NX1, a new premium camera designed for the expert photographers boasting a superb image quality, remarkable fast AF system, and ease of use

​Cologne, Germany – September 15, 2014 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, announced the launch of the revolutionary NX1, which combines cutting edge design, industry leading technology and Samsung’s innovation expertise to create an exceptionally fast compact system camera (CSC). The NX1 delivers superb image quality and unrivalled usability, setting a new benchmark for photographers everywhere and providing a genuine alternative to DSLRs as the professional camera of choice around the world. Featuring best in class 15FPS continuous AF shooting, a unique Auto Focus (AF) System III with 205 Phase Detection AF points and 28MP APS-C BSI CMOS Sensor for superior image quality, the versatile performance and precision craftsmanship will challenge even the most classical photographers to re-think their understanding of professional photography.

​”The NX1 represents the pinnacle of Samsung’s advanced photographic expertise and heralds a new era of intuitive, professional quality photography for everyone,” said Myoung Sup Han, Executive Vice President and Head of Imaging Business Team, IT & Mobile Communications business at Samsung Electronics. “With the launch of the NX1, Samsung is re-defining what is possible with an interchangeable lens camera, allowing photographers everywhere to achieve previously unimaginable levels of quality and expertise in each and every image they capture.”

​Unparalleled speed and accuracy
Powerful and fast, the NX1′s DRIMe V Image Processor boasts superior color reproduction and noise reduction, utilizing powerful cores for the high speed imaging that serious photographers need. This cutting-edge technology also supports 4K UHD video recording with no need for external equipment, so movie makers can shoot and share their inspiring stories in vivid, clean, widescreen realism.

​Featuring Samsung’s new NX AF (Auto Focus) System III with 205 Phase Detection AF points, the NX1 re-defines the boundaries of semi-professional level photography with its speed, agility and focusing ability. While the most extraordinary moments can pass by in an instance, the NX1′s world class AF speed (0.055sec) allows them to be captured and remembered in rich detail for years to come. Additionally, industry leading 15FPS continuous shooting allows NX1 users to seamlessly track and shoot whole action sequences.

​Wide Phase Detection also means the NX1 can instinctively track subjects almost anywhere in the frame, regardless of their location. Photographers can capture even the briefest of moments as there is no need to re-compose a shot – they can simply focus and shoot immediately, allowing for extreme speed and flexibility. This technology will be of particular interest to those who love to shoot video, as the NX1 supports the use of Phase AF during movie recording, so that results are stable and steady.

​Further enhancing the NX1’s action credentials is the intelligent new Samsung Auto Shot (SAS) feature which actually automatically takes the picture at precisely the right moment. Thanks to the NX1’s brand-new DRIMe V processor, the advanced hardware algorithms can recognize high-speed motion, and equate shutter-lag in real-time. Even with a fast shutter speed and high speed drive, it can still be difficult to capture action (like the moment a baseball player strikes the ball). SAS removes this concern by accurately predicting the right time to capture the shot, resulting in perfect capture in every decisive moment.

​Capture even the most elusive subjects
The NX1 is also equipped with Samsung’s newly designed 28MP APS-C CMOS Sensor, featuring an innovative Back Side Illumination (BSI) structure with a micro lens array. Compared to conventional CMOS sensors, BSI reduces noise more effectively by keeping the path between the lens and sensors clear so more light can hit each pixel, lowering the signal-to-noise ratio. As a result, NX1 users need never compromise on perfection, even in low light. Superb image quality and jaw-dropping results are guaranteed, whatever the shooting scenario or subject.

​The NX1 supports native ISO 100-25600 and extended ISO to 51200, letting you capture well exposed images with less noise even when the lighting conditions are quite dark. Furthermore, utilizing new technology designed specifically for the NX1, even subtle noise produced by cameras that cannot be seen by the naked eye can be effectively diminished. This technology works by distinguishing each imaging area, such as edges, textures, or skies and intelligently applying different types of noise reduction to the individual parts. This method retains details without the softening that’s common with other global noise reduction technologies.

​The NX1 supports both 4K and Ultra HD (UHD) video recording, providing flexibility and choice for movie capture. UHD has a four times higher resolution than Full HD, readily apparent in the smooth and impressive quality of footage shot on the NX1. The inbuilt HEVC Codec (H.265), the most advanced compression technology available, brings efficiency to the storage of video clips by compressing high quality video to half the size and bit rate of H.264 footage without compromising on quality. All files are conveniently stored on the SD Card so that an external 4K recorder is not necessary. Post production requirements also haven’t been neglected with the inclusion of conversion software for editing the 4K footage.

​Classic design and extreme usability
The highly durable magnesium alloy body of the NX1 offers the solid and rugged feel that high end photographers are accustomed to. Carefully crafted, the ergonomic design of the NX1 is comfortable to hold, with a specially shaped grip which allows users to maintain a tight hold while shooting. Those seeking further photographic options can take advantage of the custom designed Vertical Grip accessory (sold separately), allowing for the use of a larger battery and easier vertical and horizontal shooting.

​The NX1’s sturdy build is strengthened with dust and splash resistance, including rubber seals and seams to protect dials and buttons. This durable design helps NX1 photographers to seize every opportunity to capture awe inspiring scenes, regardless of any outdoor shooting environments.

​The Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) is an XGA OLED display with 2.36 million dots, providing users with an extremely life-like and immersive eye-level composing experience. Bolstering the EVF, the NX1’s DRIMe V Image Processor cuts down lag time to just 0.005-seconds so that the EVF reflects the scene being shot in nearly real time, without delay.

​The 3.0-inch FVGA Super AMOLED display with touch capabilities is brilliantly lit and has a natural looking display. The only CSC to feature a top LCD panel, the NX1’s UI synchronized status display window clearly displays a number of advanced camera settings, from WB, drive and battery condition, so that it is quick and easy to control the camera.

​Industry leading connectivity
Equipped with Wi-Fi functionality, the NX1 has the fastest, most advanced connectivity available, allowing users to watch 4K movies on UHD TV via wireless streaming. With its outstanding data transfer speed, users can send both large images and Full HD video files swiftly and without delay. The NX1 is also the world’s first Bluetooth equipped CSC, further boosting Samsung’s Smart Camera offering and ensuring users are always connected for easy pairing and quick transfer times with smartphones and tablets.

​Introducing a versatile new NX lens

Expanding the NX lens range is the new 50-150mm 2.8 S ED OIS lens, a high end, premium telephoto lens perfectly matched with the NX1. With its ultra-fast F2.8 maximum aperture and 35mm equivalent 77-231mm focal range, this multipurpose S-series lens is ideally suited to a wide range of scenarios including sport, wildlife and portrait photography. Additional features include Advanced Multi-Axis Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) system with up to 4.5 stops (at mid range, under the CIPA standard), Samsung’s Ultra Precise Stepping Motor (UPSM), and dust and splash resistance offered by Samsung Hyper Shield (SHS)

The PowerShot G7 X Digital Camera

Ideal for those looking for DSLR features and quality in a compact point-and-shoot body, the PowerShot G7 X digital camera is Canon’s first compact camera with a one-inch sensor. The large, one-inch, 20.2-megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor delivers optimal performance with an ISO range of 125 – 12,800. The sensor, along with Canon’s exclusive DIGIC 6 Image Processor, creates Canon’s high-sensitivity HS System delivering excellent low-light performance so images and videos shot are clear and sharp, helping to ensure that the finest details of the scene are preserved.

Featuring an impressive, newly developed premium quality Canon lens with 4.2x optical zoom ratio (equivalent to 24-100mm), together with a maximum aperture range of f/1.8 to f/2.8 from wide to telephoto, the PowerShot G7 X camera gives users the high level of optical performance required to capture beautiful images when shooting portraits and crisp clarity when shooting sweeping landscapes or creative macro shots. The lens features a nine-blade curved aperture diaphragm to provide beautiful, blurred backgrounds even at full-zoom range. And the camera’s built-in ND filter expands the options for creative expression with stills and videos. The PowerShot G7 X camera lets users fully realize the clarity and creativity of their shots with the new multi-angle (up to 180 degrees) three-inch capacitive touch LCD panel featuring a screen resolution of 1,040K dots.

Greatly improving a photographer’s ability to capture subjects in motion is the camera’s High Speed AF and its 31 AF points, spread widely across the picture area to help users capture every shot with accuracy and ease. Paired with continuous shooting speeds up to 6.5 frames per second, the PowerShot G7 X camera gives users the capability to take their best shots in full resolution.

The PowerShot G7 X camera is equipped with built-in Wi-Fi technology, so users can share their stunning still images and videos quickly and easily online using compatible mobile devices3. Using the Mobile Device Connect Button, users can connect to a compatible smartphone or tablet easily, while direct uploading and storage of images and movies to the web is easily done using Canon iMAGE GATEWAY4. For even easier connectivity, the PowerShot G7 X camera also features NFC making initial setup and pairing easier with a compatible Android device.

Photographers can also capture stunning Full HD video up to 1080/60p with the PowerShot G7 X camera. Accessing the various video shooting modes is easily done as the automatic and manual focus, along with the exposure settings, can be controlled using the touch panel, the dial on the back of the camera or a control ring on the lens and convenient playback on a HDTV can be done via the camera’s HDMI port.

The PowerShot G7 X camera also offers multiple shooting modes giving users the power of expression. For example, the advanced Star Mode features four options to capture images of starry night skies with impeccable quality. The “Star Portrait” and “Star Nightscape” modes help capture the radiance of stars in the background while still allowing photographers to capture a foreground subject. The “Star Trails” mode turns star movement into a luminous still image, while the “Star Time-Lapse Movie” mode makes beautiful video clips that show the movement of the stars against a static background.

For even more creative expression, the PowerShot G7 X camera features Canon’s unique Creative Shot Mode for still images, with four filter categories – Retro, Monochrome, Special and Natural. Smart AUTO technology selects 58 different pre-defined scenes for still shots and 21 for video making it possible to take beautiful images and video in a variety of situations. The camera’s High Dynamic Range (HDR) Mode offers ample versatility for creating still images with an artistic flare. Additionally, the camera’s Intelligent IS automatically chooses from one of eight modes to help optimize image stabilization for virtually shake-free images in various shooting conditions.

For photograph purists, the PowerShot G7 X camera fully supports both manual exposure control and the user’s choice of RAW, JPEG or RAW+JPEG recording formats. The PowerShot G7 X camera also provides excellent manual control operability with a touch panel, a programmable control ring on the lens, an exposure compensation dial, and two customizable buttons on the back in a sleek, compact body.
