As the year comes to a close, brands are trying to have their “one more thing” moment. Realme just launched a pair of new devices and now Panasonic has just announced a brand new mirrorless camera, the Panasonic Lumix G100. This is a camera with a micro four-thirds sensor and not a full frame one.

Specifications and Features

The Panasonic Lumix G100 is a budget-friendly mirrorless camera but is here to offer a host of features that are designed specifically for vloggers. The micro four-thirds sensor offers a 20-megapixel resolution and also sports 5-axis sensor-shift based image stabilization. While this takes care of the image quality aspect, Panasonic has infused the G100 with OZO Audio technology, a marvel from the house of Nokia. Panaonic says that by combining their own audio processing technologies with that of OZO, they’re able to track a subject across the frame and record their audio. This is a feature that we’ve seen implemented in some smartphones, but never in a DSLR or mirrorless camera due to the processing power required to achieve this feat.

Given the camera’s vlogger-centric focus, Panasonic has made the Lumix G100 extremely light, weighing in just at 412 grams with the LUMIX G VARIO 12-32mm / F3.5-5.6 kit lens. Panasonic has also introduced a new camera grip that makes using the G100 extremely easy, allowing the camera to be controlled by the grip via a USB cable. Panasonic has priced the camera at INR 58,990 (without grip) and INR 67,990 (with grip). Both the kits of LUMIX G100 come with the LUMIX G VARIO 12-32mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH/MEGA O.I.S.(H-FS12032) lens.

Interestingly, this is the second camera to launch in the Indian market that’s catering specifically to vloggers. The first was the Sony ZV-1, a compact camera from Sony with a 1” sensor and the same 20. Megapixel resolution. The ZV-1 also sports a very usable 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens, making it a very capable all-round camera for photo and video both. Panasonic joins this camera with a very similar feature set, but the added advantage of being able to change lenses.
