Digital Camera World Verdict

Vloggers and creatives more broadly will enjoy the simplicity of the Lumix G100. It makes it easy to capture high-quality video and stills with its approachable button layout. Even people uninterested in the technicalities of capturing great-looking videos will be able to get results with this camera. There’s an inherent risk of dumbing things down too much when creating a camera for social media creatives, but Panasonic has avoided that pitfall with the Lumix G100. By giving it a decent viewfinder and “proper camera” ergonomics, Panasonic has given the G100 an edge in a highly competitive market.

The Panasonic Lumix G100 is a smart-looking little camera, but does the Lumix G range need another model? It could be argued that the Lumix brand has done more to contribute to the boom in vlogging than any other. As one of the leading innovators in video-capable digital cameras, Panasonic has a broad range of models that could do the job of the all-new G100. But if you’re familiar with the Lumix G and GH ranges of cameras, you may be wondering why there’s even a need for another camera in this packed segment.
