Specs and Features

The Lumix G100D is stock full of amazing features and specs that make the functionality of the camera outstanding.


The Lumix G100D provides a small upgrade over the original Lumix G100, it comes with a USB-C port and replaces the Dot LCD viewfinder found on the G100 with an OLED display. This means that recording your content becomes even easier as you can see a better image reproduction on the display of the OLED Electronic Viewfinder. The touchscreen EVF is also great for video playback because of the resolution and display.

The Lumix G100D is very lightweight even with a lens attached, which means that one handed recording has just become easier with less strain on those lengthy vlogging sessions.

With the Live MOS image sensor providing 20.3 megapixels for high resolution images and video recordings, you can expect a wonderful exposure to share.

As a Vlogger we are always concerned with image stabilization, as the last thing we want is a herkie jerky vlog that just won’t help your content or your social media page. Therefore we are excited to tell you about the fantastic 5-axis HYBRID I.S. For video recording only. The 4-axis compensation works when recording in 4K UHD. So rest assured that with this O.I.S. you can eliminate shake and blur often associated with handheld recording.

The Lumix G100D can record from a Frame Marker to V-LogL recording. The frame marker is basically the part of the recording scene that you will use for your photographs and video recordings and is great for social media aspect ratios. The VlogL recording format will have more detail than flat recording, and works great in low light conditions making the Lumix G a very versatile camera.

The Lumix G100D works in unison with your smartphone through the LUMIX Sync app. Pair via the included Bluetooth 4.2 standard or connect via Wi-Fi AC or Wi-Fi 5 with WPA 2 security standard for fast, easy sharing of full-resolution files.

Slow motion recording at FHD can also reach 60 FPS. This is the refresh rate of the frames per second that match up with the maximum amount of FPS that you will find on your cable TV services or streaming content.

With the electronically controlled shutter you can expect the following shutter speeds during normal video recordings or image shooting: Still image: Time (Max. 60 second), 1/16,000 - 60, Motion picture: 1/16,000 - 1/25, Creative Video M mode / MF mode: 1/16,000 - 1/2.

We can’t leave out the fantastic autofocus system of this camera. With the contrast autofocus system you get great features like face and Eye detection and advanced subject tracking.

The 2.0 times zoom gives you good magnification which can highlight further away subjects or objects during a Vlog.

When you press the function button and choose REC, this will bring up your 4K UHD recording options like cropping and white balance to name a few. This enhances the ease of use of this camera, as you don’t have to worry about multiple buttons to reach the recording setting you want.

When recoding video you can expect approximately 40 minutes of recording time. We highly recommend purchasing a spare battery or two for those longer vlogging sessions.
