DPReview has completed the Panasonic Lumix DC-G100 review and test results: the Panasonic Lumix DC-G100 achieves an amazing 78% overall score from the experts at DPReview.

Panasonic Lumix G100:

  • 20.3MP Digital Live MOS Sensor
  • UHD 4K30p Video, Pre-Installed V-Log L
  • 5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilization
  • OZO Audio with Subject Tracking
  • 3.0″ 1.84m-Dot Free-Angle Touchscreen
  • 3.68m-Dot 0.73x-Mag. OLED Viewfinder

  • Advanced DFD AF System; 4K PHOTO
  • Bluetooth LE and Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • Lumix G Vario 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens

What we like

  • Compact body with a viewfinder makes it a great choice for photographers on-the-go
  • Ability to edit Raw images in camera
  • Directional audio tracking
  • Choice of lenses
  • In-camera charging is handy

What we don’t

  • Focus hunting while in video mode, mediocre performance of IS in video mode
  • Extreme crop when shooting in 4K
  • 10 minute recording time in 4K, 29:59 in 1080p
  • Internal flash won’t work as ‘fill’

Conclusion from DPReview:

The G100 is designed to be a camera for vloggers and content creators but its severe crop in video (especially if you want stabilization) and its inconsistent AF undermine it for that task. It’s a capable enough small interchangeable lens camera but one whose special features aren’t particularly usable.
