Panasonic LX100 First Look at Mad Mohawk Films

Panasonic LX100 First Look at Mad Mohawk Films shooting delicious 4K. Let me get this right out of the way. We got this camera for Video and Video only. I am spoiled by the lovely stills I get from my Sony A7 and am unlikely to use this for stills but the Video I pull from it is quite quite nice. The biggest issue I have with it and it's actually fairly mundane, the lack of a microphone input and a headphone output. Why is it mundane? Well the built in mics in a quiet studio environment close up work pretty well but I do have a digital recorder to do dual system audio and synch in FCPX so it's a minor detail. The 24-75mm F1.7-2.8 Leica lens is nice and sharp and reasonably fast. The fact that it is non removeable is not a big hindrance as this camera will mostly be used for interviews and product reviews so havng a long zoom won't be mnissed. I've used the App to control the camera via my phone, it cuts down on some of the digging thru menus so is another plus. It's pretty reasonably priced at $699 currently Same Sensor as the GH4 I'm told and shoots 100mbit 4k footage.
