Photogs! Thought this could probably justify a value post. Opinions?

Howdy-do Geniuses, this is going to be time killing.

The Panasonic Lumix G100 is a new mirrorless inter-changeable lens camera designed speciifcally for vlogging.

Smaller than an iPhone XR, the tiny G100 offers 4K 30p video recording, the Worlds first OZO Audio by Nokia for premium sound quality with three internal microphones, a dedicated video selfie mode for simple vlogging setup, 2x/4x slow motion and 2x/4x/8x FHD quick motion options, V-Log L recording for more advanced users, and social media frame markers and record frame indicators.

The compact and lightweight Panasonic G100 weighs just 412g with its 12-32mm kit lens and has a 20.3 megapixel MOS sensor for stills. It also features five-axis hybrid image stabilisation, a 1840K dot free angle touch LCD, 3,680K dot viewfinder, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and a dedicated button for easy image transfer to smartphone.

Compared to the recently announced Sony ZV-1 compact camera, probably its most obvious rival, the Lumix G100 is bigger and slightly heavier, but has a built-in viewfinder, higher resolution LCD screen, and you can change the lens.

Other similar competitors include the Canon EOS M50 and the Fujifilm X-T200 mirrorless models, but they’re more all-round cameras with good video functionality, rather than being especially dedicated to vlogging.

Available at the end of July, the Panasonic Lumix G100 is priced from £589.99 in the UK for body only, £679.99 for 12-32mm lens kit, or £719.99 for 12-32mm lens and tripod grip kit.

The new DMW-SHGR1 Tripod Grip will also be available at launch priced at £89.99.
