Panasonic LX7 vs. Sony RX100 vs. Canon G1 X

Panasonic LX7 test is done at french website focus Numerique (computer translated), we have selected three camera Panasonic LX7, Sony RX100 and Canon G1 X for comparison review.

The Canon G1  X have the biggest 1.5″ (18.7 x 14 mm) sensor, after that Sony RX 100 with 1″ (13.2 x 8.8 mm) and finally Panasonic Lumix with 1/1.7″ (7.44 x 5.58 mm) sensor.

The Panasonic LX7 comes at $150 less than Sony RX 100 and approx $199 less than Canon G1 X, so we have to keep the sensor size and price difference in our mind before we see the test result.

Panasonic Announces AVCCAM Camera Recorder AG-AC90

Panasonic Corporation will release the AG-AC90 memory card camera recorder, a new “AVCCAM” series model, in October 2012. The AG-AC90 new memory card recorder combines the high image quality, advanced functions and easy operation that professionals demand in a stylish, easy-to-handle design.

 Press Release

BRACKNELL, UK, 14 AUGUST 2012 – Panasonic Corporation will release the AG-AC90 memory card camera recorder, a new “AVCCAM” series model, in October 2012.

The AG-AC90 new memory card recorder combines the high image quality, advanced functions and easy operation that professionals demand in a stylish, easy-to-handle design. Its zoom lens extends from 29.8 mm (35mm equivalent) wide angle to 12x optical zoom, with a high speed of F1.5 brightness. BSI (backside illumination) type 3MOS image sensors exhibit high sensitivity, Full-HD resolution and a high S/N ratio. The AVCHD recorder section supports both PS mode, for Full-HD progressive image production, and pro-use PH mode. This gives a camera operator the field of view, image quality, and file/video formats he/she needs for news gathering and image production. Other professional operating features include Triple Manual Rings (focus, zoom and iris) that approach the versatility and feel of the interchangeable lenses, XLR Microphone/Audio inputs, and remote terminals to provide the system expandability that professional applications require.

The AG-AC90 AVCCAM memory card recorder will be available in October, 2012 at suggested price of €1800 RRP (excluding VAT).

The AG-AC90 will be exhibited at the Beijing International Radio, TV & Film Equipment Exhibition “BIRTV2012″ to be held at the China International Exhibition Center (CIEC) from Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th August, and at the European International Broadcasting Convention “IBC2012″ to be held at the RAI Centre in Amsterdam, Netherlands from Friday 7th to Tuesday 11th September.

 

Main Features of AG-AC90


29.8mm Wide-Angle / High powered Zoom Lens
The high-powered 12x zoom lens includes a 29.8 mm (35 mm equivalent) wide-angle setting. When using the Intelligent 25x digital zoom, it achieves up to 25x seamless zooming. In addition, it also features 2x, 5x and 10x digital zoom function. Panasonic’s unique Nano Surface Coating minimizes ghosts and flaring, and a high speed, F1.5 brightness enables extremely clear image rendering. The built-in 5-axis Hybrid OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) ensures stable handheld shooting.

High-Sensitivity BSI Type 3MOS Sensors
Three (RGB) backside illumination corresponding 1/4.7 type MOS image sensors have an effective pixel count of 2,190,000 pixels. This makes it possible to capture excellent images with high definition and superb color reproduction even in dimly lit locations. The image processing circuit, which is tuned for professional use, produces highly natural gradation and sharp detail.

Easy Operation with Triple Manual Rings and a High-Definition LCD monitor
The lens barrel is equipped with manual rings for focus, zoom and iris operation to enable the kind of speedy, intuitive camera work that is generally associated with interchangeable lenses. The 8.89 cm (3.5 inches) LCD monitor (touch panel), which stores easily inside the top front part of the handle, has approximately 1,150,000 dot resolution to enhance focusing, and includes focus assist, zebra, and color bar display functions. The LCD monitor rotates 270 degrees for easy low-angle, high-angle, and self-interview shootings.
