Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS1 Digital Camera, HD 720p, 16.1MP, 5x Optical Zoom, 2.7” LCD Screen with Leather Case, Violet

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

The Panasonic DMC-XS1 makes the perfect party snapper. With the World’s slimmest body, it’s an ideal choice for pockets and bags. Just because it’s slimmer doesn’t mean that it skimps on functions either. A 5x optical zoom gives beautifully detailed portraits, while advanced image stabilisation and HD video puts rock solid footage at your fingertips.

Key benefits:

  • The XS1 mixes a 24mm wide-angle lens with a 5x optical zoom in a slim, compact body. The 24mm ultra wide-angle lens allows a wider range of possibilities, with around 200% more viewing space compared to a 35mm camera.
  • A Creative Panorama function with 11 filters lets you apply effects to create a distinctive horizontal / vertical panoramic image. The XS1 also uses Creative Control and Creative Retouch with 13 filter effects. Creative Control lets you shoot with a filter while checking how it changes the picture and the Creative Retouch feature places a filter effect on the picture even after shooting.
  • MEGA OIS is incorporated in the iA (intelligent auto) mode to suppress hand-shake. Apart from the digital image correction, it corrects the lens unit to offset it so that pictures stay sharp. Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent Exposure and Face Detection are also included to get you the best results.
  • The XS1 records dynamic HD video in in QuickTime Motion JPEG format. Recording can be started with the press of an independent video button on the top of the camera - convenient for capturing moments on the move.
  • Includes battery, charger, strap, software CD and USB cable.
