.

Video Scenarios

Streaming video live is a great way to share your experiences and this camera from Panasonic provides a couple of connectivity options to help you with this.

Recording every moment of the day's events is precious and this device certainly delivers. While the camera is rolling it has a handy Image stabilization feature built-in.

Its always great to capture moments of delight at home or while spending time with family and friends on an outing. For this, the Panasonic DC-LX100M2 is a great companion to have.

For the YouTubers - This is a good choice for your video recordings because in addition to it's excellent Image Sensor Size (17.30 x 13 mm mm), it comes with an in-built image stablizer that ensures your shots remain steady.

Other Video needs

Ultra High Definition - you'll be able to capture immersive and highly detailed footage with this camera's 4K capability.

If you're looking for that silky-smooth rendering of your videos, this camera has got it as its able to handle 60 FPS at 1080p resolutions.

Low light recording can be tricky, however this camera has got what it takes to help you through that. This is because its minimum aperture number combined with it's maximum ISO sensitivity can produce crispy images with minimal noise.

Photo Scenarios

If you're looking to simply use your camera to point-and-shoot everyday moments with an item or person as the subject matter, then the DC-LX100M2 is an easy recommendation for this.

While taking those action shots during the day's event, you'll be aiming to keep your subject matter in sharp focus while they're in motion. The Auto Focus Tracking capability that comes with this camera helps with this.

The thrilling action of sports is filled with magical moments that shouldn't be missed. Which is why by taking the DC-LX100M2 for those games, you'll have a camera that can effectively track subjects in frame while they are in motion.

Taking photos while underwater is a lot of fun. You'll be able to bathe the subject of your photograph with the colours and hues only found when taking shots in an aquatic environment.

Sometimes while on sightseeing or on a tour, you can only observe things from a distance. Which is why the zoom capability on this camera comes in handy in that situation.

From ants to zebras, a camera for nature's mosaic needs to have a great image sensor which is why the 17.30 x 13 mm (mm) that comes with this model works well for this scenario. It comes with a Continuous Shooting Mode allowing you to take successive shots rapidly. 

To capture mother nature in her full beauty requires a good eye and a camera that can adequately handle landscape scenarios. This model from Panasonic is good fit as it's got the ability to focus on multiple parts of your picture frame.

Other considerations

Sometimes carrying cables about just so you can move your photos across the devices can be a pain. Good thing this particular model comes with Wi-Fi.

Style

This device showcases a refined taste in mobile devices due to clean lines and a premium look.

It looks simple, capable and doesn't stand out in any particular way.
