Backscatter reviews the Panasonic LX100 II
Wetpixel sponsor Backscatter Underwater Photo and Video have posted an excellent review of the underwater performance of the Panasonic LX100 mark II compact camera. The camera features a Micro 4/3 sensor, significantly larger than the 25 mm sensors on most high-performance compact cameras. The review notes that using wet lenses allows for a sufficient range of focal lengths and that the wide angle performance of the camera was found by the reviewers to be very good.
