Panasonic is introducing a new 16.1-megapixel Lumix DMC-XS1 Digital Camera that integrates a host of creative options to make photography more artistic and fun in a stylish flat body profile with an eye-catching two-colored design. The 24 mm wide-angle 5x optical zoom LUMIX lens (equivalent to 24 mm to 120 mm on a 35mm camera) is equipped for versatile, easy image composition. It features the world's slimmest body profile thanks to the Panasonic's advanced optical design and development technology. 

Max. 8x Intelligent Zoom is also available. A variety of special effects that add fun to shooting experience are integrated in DMC-XS1 - Creative Control, Creative Retouch and Creative Panorama. With a newly added motion picture button, the 720p HD video recording can be started instantly. The iA (Intelligent Auto) mode lets users leave everything to the camera to take beautiful images with its MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent Exposure and Face Detection. 

Once you enter the iA mode, these multi-capable functions happen automatically, so that you can shoot without the bother of adjusting settings every time conditions change. The DMC-XS1 also comes with Auto Retouch and compatibility with AC / USB power charging.
