Hence the larger optical zoom of LX100 will sure help you to get images framed as you want.

Aperture Range:- LX100 has a variable aperture of F1.7-F2.8 while RXIR II, has fixed aperture of F2.0. However we have to keep in mind despite of having better aperture at wide-end of the lens Panasonic will not able to provide the amount of DOF that Sony RX1 R II can generate with its F2.0 lens. The biggest reason behind is the difference in sensor size of both the camera. The Sony RX1R II uses fullframe sensor whereas Panasonic LX100 uses a 4/3 format sensor.

Thoughts on The forthcoming canon 4k compact camera

panasonic_dmc_fz1000kcanon 4k camera

A big and hot question that is fair and sensible to arise in everyone’s mind that what’re the reasons that pulled Canon towards building of the 4k compact camera with a weak specification like that?  A strange camera that’s in the pipeline for NAB April 2015 along with the features like external viewfinder, 10x optical zoom, aperture is f/2.8-5.6 4k video lens. The camera must be announced way back on 2014 or 13 to gain market share… the rumored specification look outdated when we already have cameras Panasonic FZ100 and Lumix LX100.

Take a look at the specification sheet below

Canon-4K-camera-comparison

Obviously, the question is reasonable because when Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ1000 Digital Camera in the market is possessing a far better specs with 16x Zoom Lens and large 20.1MP 1″ High Sensitivity MOS Sensor while the canon forthcoming camera will be limited with 10x zoom lens.

And if you prefer image quality more than LX100 is also available with bigger M4/3 sensor, compact 3X zoom lens and 4K recording.

However,we can say that 4k isn’t everything to a camera now a days, a camera needs superior specifications that can win the heart of the users by satisfying them in all the ways.

So by comparing all the cameras one can faithfully say that the steps of canon towards building this unnamed camera might be proved one mistake to them.

The solution of this question would be how much this canon camera can make a business in the end?
