    scratching my head now ..... trying to figure out how to use Stop Motion Animation feature

    the Time Lapse feature seems straght forward enough

    OK the Panorama feature took some time finding on the LX100 .... its found hidden in the Drive Mode section (3 O' Clock button on the dial)

    In the Drive Mode is also an interesting Aspect Bracket..... unusual and interesting. Set it to this and the camera creates automatically the 4 different Aspect Ratios .... 1:1, 3:2, 16:9 and 4:3

    Stop Motion Animation found here


    Panorama function found here.... you can choose to panorama LEFT to RIGHT ...RIGHT to LEFT...BOTTOM to TOP... or...TOP to DOWN


    And very new to me and so interesting.... Aspect Ratio bracketing !!

    Panorama and Aspect Ratio Bracketing demo together with its High Burst rate .... that buffer is mighty big given the number of jpegs fired off (jpeg settings at L Picture Size and Highest resolution) (turn up your speaker volume to hear it firing)

    If I'm not wrong, this feature first debuted on the G6, then all subsequent models (GX7, GM1, GH4) have it.

    Aspect ratio bracketing sounds nice... wonder if they'll be able to bring it to the GH3 in a firmware update...

    OK just a few good-to-know things when shooting video
    In the SD card,
    MP4 files are stored in PRIVATE->AVCHD->BDMW->STREAM
    While 4K videos are stored with the rest of the JPEGS including images pulled out of 4K videos
    4K video upload onto Youtube is painfully slow vs same scene shot in other formats


    Files pulled out of 4k vid are between 3.2 to 3.8mb (NOT mp)

    Shot this clip in Toy Pop mode (not 4K) . Go to FILTERS button, choose art filter and then just shoot regular video or 4K video

    another perspective shot in Toy Pop mode (not 4K)


    Other image extracted from 4K and HD videos

    extracted from 4K clip


    extracted from regular HD


    The difference is quite telling

    Shot at Little India around its back streets tonight
    at AWB and kicked up the ISO to 1600 and mostly in art filter mode (Dynamic Monochrome)

    These few were shot in regular color..... the AWB algorithm is managing the ghastly street lamposts' light very decently ...... NO wb tweaking on my part

    Turned on the Dynamic Monochrome art filter for the rest of the time there and picked up these images as a result

    I must say, the LX100 stabilization worked like a charm and life-saver
    All images shot in lowest resolution without any touch-ups except a litle top/bottom cropping

    Tried the Panorama mode too ..... it works in art filter mode too (Dynamic Monochrome in this case)
    The stitching algorithm makes it look seamless and bestows images with a fish-eye effect





    below without panorama

    Kandinsky has been passed the LX100 and he will continue the review with his set of images and opinions

    Overall conclusion from me?
    - I love the large sensor and resolution
    - 4k video is super fun and images extracted from 4k are useable although dont expect huge file sizes
    - well built and solid camera
    - Wonderful set of Art Filters and FIlters button
    - WIFI connectivity is quick and the smartphone app is totally loaded with loads of remote functionality
    - buffering is very good in high quality JPEG mode .... just goes on and on and on....
    - 4 variants of Monochrome plus 1 Sepia within the art filters .... and you look at the scene in monochrome too... a B&W shooter could not be happier

    - ONE WARNING.... DO NOT SCREW AROUND WITH THE lens ring.... the aperture ring is not locked down independently and I accidentally popped it out when i removed the lens ring to install the pop out lens protector.... scary.... but managed put it back without problem. So just be REAL careful when removing that lens ring when u replace it with the pop out lens cover (if u buy it)

    Uncle Ed and Uncle Kandinsky, any idea on what the retail price will be?

    a very tempting camera indeed

    Wah, how come we suddenly become Uncle

    Can kinda roughly guess based on US and JPN launch prices, and comparing the difference with the Leica D-LUX (Typ 109).

    LX100
    US: US$899 (approx S$1150)
    Japan: ¥100,110 (approx S$1180)

    Leica D-LUX (Typ 109)
    Local: S$1700
    US: US$1195 (approx S$1525)
    Price difference with the LX100: US$296 (approx S$380)
