With good image quality and a compact design, the Lumix LX100 II improves upon its predecessor, while still keeping many of its most beloved qualities. At the heart of this compact is a 17MP 4/3" image sensor that outputs detailed still images and captures 4K video at 24 or 30 fps.(opens in new tab)
To help photographers make greater use of the sensor’s multi-aspect nature, there’s a switch on the lens barrel that allows you to swap quickly between shooting in 3:2, 16:9, 1:1 and 4:3 ratio. This is a great prompt to consider aspect ratio at the shooting stage rather than when processing images.
In fact, it’s beneficial to do so as in Adobe Camera Raw, the RAW files only have the data from the aspect ratio they are captured in. This means any post-capture aspect changes crop into that image. With other cameras’ aspect ratio settings it’s usually possible to see the image from the whole sensor.
