A Whole New Style of Photo Expression
High Dynamic Range Still Photo – HLG Photo Mode
The HLG Photo mode allows images to be shot with a wider dynamic range. Rich, precise color expression as close as possible to visual memory is enabled by reproducing both glaring lights and dark shadows that were likely to be overexposed or underexposed. HLG Photos are produced as an HSP file. The user can playback these vibrant images on the latest Panasonic HLG-compliant 4K TV via an HDMI cable connection or other HLG-compliant devices. It is also ideal for photo presentations by photographers.
Stunning Details with a Realistic Sensation
High Resolution Mode
Taking advantage of the Body I.S.(Image Stabilizer) mechanism, 8 consecutive images are automatically shot while shifting the sensor. These 8 images are synthesized into a single image by the new Venus Engine, which boasts high-speed signal processing. Precise details are faithfully reproduced to be saved as a beautiful, highly realistic image. This mode is ideal for taking natural landscapes or fine art objects with delicate details. Considering situations where moving subjects are included in the scene, sub options are available to suppress motion blur, so photographers can use this mode just like when they shoot in a normal photo shooting mode.
Welcome to a new world of possibilities: the L-Mount, developed by Leica Camera, marks the start of a new era of creative freedom. Never before has one lens mount standard allowed for an almost limitless array of options in combining different interchangeable lenses with cameras featuring different sensor formats.
Leica Camera, Panasonic and Sigma are set to offer a user-friendly solution that will allow photographers to ‘mix and match’ any of the three manufacturers’ APS-C and full-frame cameras with any lens from each other’s product portfolios. Regardless of which combination you might choose: virtually all functional and qualitative characteristics of each respective system will be fully retained. The L-Mount thereby opens up an almost limitless spectrum of new creative possibilities.
