The Panasonic Lumix G100 Body Only makes it almost effortless to capture high-quality audio and stable 4K UHD video. It produces outstanding high-resolution images with low noise from its 20.3 Megapixels, sure to beat any smartphone while still offering an incredibly easy to use tool for vloggers and online video content creators.
As a first for interchangeable lens cameras, the new Panasonic Lumix G100 Mirrorless Camera offers OZO Audio by Nokia. It uses three built-in microphones to track and prioritise the subject while recording sharp, vibrant sound, and all that’s required is to select the most suitable mode.
This all-in-one audio solution has two significant benefits that make it easier to create engaging vlogs and content. Firstly, it can capture sound based on where you are in relation to the camera - so whether you are in front or behind the lens, audio is clear and sharp, actively reducing background noise. Secondly, OZO Audio works together with the G100’s autofocus system to track and follow the sounds of the subject in focus when it is in front of the camera.
Allowing you to work with minimal equipment the Lumix G100 is supported by a range of new functions designed to provide excellent video quality and operating ease for the creative videographer. New features include content sharing via smartphone at the touch of a button, LUMIX Video Selfie via a free-angle monitor, and Frame Marker with a range of popular aspect ratios. Other capabilities include Quick and Slow video modes, and V-Log L recording pre-installed for precise colour grading.

First Camera* with OZO Audio | High-Quality Internal Audio Recording
The integrated OZO Audio system of the Panasonic G100 uses three individual microphones to capture immersive sound. Whether you are behind the camera narrating, or in front of the lens speaking to camera, the OZO Audio system will track and capture sound, removing the need for an expensive, bulky external microphone.

5 different OZO Audio Modes for the Best Possible All-in-one Mirrorless Audio
The Panasonic Lumix G100 has five different OZO Audio Modes which in different ways use its three built-in microphones to track and prioritise subjects while recording sharp and vibrant sound. The five modes are Tracking, Surround, Front, Back and Auto:
The Tracking mode is an industry first and a game-changer for vloggers and on-camera presenters. It works in conjunction with Panasonic’s Face Recognition technology to analyse the scene and automatically adjust the three microphones to converge on the location of the presenter or the subject. The end result is clear voice recording with consistent levels even when recording in crowds or locations with ambient noise.
The Surround mode records audio in all directions to provide a 360° sound experience, perfect for conveying the ambience of a scene, from the sounds of nature to a sports event.
The Front mode captures sound in front of the camera while suppressing any noise behind the lens. It’s ideal for isolating voices in interviews or when recording live performances such as concerts, theatre shows or corporate presentations.
Back recording is perfect for solo travellers and independent content creators. Generally not practical with an external microphone, the back recording mode opens up new creative opportunities by empowering the camera operator to directly narrate the scene they’re shooting, giving their audience real-time insight into what is happening, as it happens.
Auto mode is best for unpredictable scenes and general recording situations. It automatically switches between tracking and surround modes, allowing the operator behind the camera to interact with a presenter in front of the lens, or seamlessly combine the 360° soundscape of a scene with realtime narration - eliminating the task of editing audio from multiple sources in post-production.
Smooth 4K UHD Video with 5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabiliser
The Panasonic Lumix G100 captures smooth 4K video in 3840 x 2160 resolution at 30p/25p/24p, you can also create impressive 4x or 2x slow and 8x, 4x or 2x quick motion Full HD footage at a breeze. Even jaw-dropping time-lapse videos are possible with the G100's built-in features.
When recording video, the powerful 5-Axis Hybrid I.S. (Image Stabiliser) in the G100 is indispensable to avoid shaky images. This technology provides effective shake suppression for stable, easy-to-watch video in situations such as recording while walking and talking.
For advanced videographers, the Panasonic G100 also supports V-Log L recording, which provides a far greater dynamic range for colour grading in post-production. Especially handy if you plan to push your colours for a little extra oompf or have a particular look in mind for your content.
LUMIX Video Selfie Mode | 3-inch Free-Angle Touchscreen
Vlogging is super easy with the G100, simply flip the large 3.0-inch 1840k-dot touch monitor towards you when filming selfies or vlogs to ensure the frame looks good. This free-angle rear monitor is also really convenient for taking high and low-angle shots.
Other shooting assist functions for the solo content creator include Frame Marker for checking composition during recording. A wide range of aspect ratios are supported, including those for popular social media platforms - 16:9, 4:3, 1:1, 4:5, 5:4 and 9:16. In addition, the REC Frame Indicator displays an eye-catching red frame for checking at a glance if the camera is recording or not.
Create Sharp Images | 20.3 Megapixels High-quality Image Sensor with No Low Pass Filter
The Panasonic G100 has a 20.3MP MOS Sensor without a Low Pass Filter, for creating sharp images with low noise. This sensor is much larger than that of a smartphone, and this capability provides the benefits of shallower depth of field, enhanced image quality and allows low-light shooting at up to ISO 25600.
LUMIX 4K Photo Mode
This useful 4K feature allows photographers to capture spur of the moment fast-action shots by shooting at burst speeds of up to 30 frames per second.
Post Focus & Focus Stacking Modes
Post Focus mode allows the user to choose the focal point of an image after the shot has been taken, and Focus Stacking combines focal points to achieve complete foreground to background focus.
Easy connectivity via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and HDMI
Creatives on the move can streamline content sharing with smartphones using Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy connection and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi® (IEEE 802.11b/g/n). With an always-on connection using BLE4.2, images can be geotagged, and a smartphone can be used as the camera’s remote control.
A dedicated button on the G100 allows vloggers to quickly transfer images and videos to their smartphone for editing and sharing to social media. The camera also supports video output over HDMI, allowing it to be used as a streaming webcam with exceptional sound, high image quality and rich depth of field.
