The black Lumix DMC-XS1 Digital Camera from Panasonic is an elegant and very compact camera with an ultra wide-angle lens. Its 16.1MP CCD sensor and Venus Engine image processor provide sharp images, accurate colors and fast performance and its 5X optical zoom lens stretches from ultra wide-angle to telephoto length to capture most any shot you will need. This Lumix DC Vario lens offers a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-120mm with a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 at the wide-angle end. This aperture is sufficient for clear low light photography and the camera's MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) will compensate for any camera shake to provide clear photos and videos when shooting at telephoto lengths. In case you need even further telephoto reach, an 8x Intelligent digital zoom is also available.

720p HD video recording is also supported by the XS1 and a dedicated one-touch button will take you instantly from photo mode to video. Continuous autofocus is supported in video mode so you will stay in focus as your subject moves. A 2.7" Intelligent LCD screen is provided for composition and playback, and it provides 11-step auto brightness that changes as lighting conditions change. 

The XS1 offers fast autofocus and its Intelligent Auto mode allows the camera to set the optimal adjustments while you compose and shoot. If you want your settings to be even more specific, 14 individual Scene Modes, such as Portrait, Sunset or Sports offer predefined settings that correspond to the scene you are shooting. Four photo aspect ratios are available, 4:3, 3:2, 16:9 and square-shaped 1:1 and Panorama Shot Mode shoots both horizontal and vertical panoramas. Creative Control and Creative Retouch modes allow you to add expressive effects to your images either while recording or after you have shot them. 

The DMC-XS1 provides 90MB of internal memory in case your memory card fills up and can be charged from your computer via its USB input as well as by a conventional AC charger. It is compatible with micro SD and micro SDHC memory cards. PHOTOfunSTUDIO 9.0 image management software is included with your camera.
