Stocks in this article: PC

For both photos and movies, the XS1's optical image stabilizing system (MEGA O.I.S.) makes sure that neither a shaky hand nor a bump in the road compromises your creativity. With MEGA O.I.S even the slightest camera movements are compensated for by moving the lens in the opposite direction.

A new level of creativity Aspiring photographers can take advantage of the XS1's wide range of creative and artistic features and functions. All-new Creative Control allows you to choose from a selection of 13 different filters before you take your photo. Options such as 'Retro', 'Pop' and 'Miniature' provide a new level of creativity and control to your photography, adding to even the simplest of pictures. Stunning panoramic shots are achievable with the 180 degree panorama mode, and you'll also be able to make any necessary changes after you have taken your picture with Creative Retouch. Applying your creativity could not be easier or more intuitive with a simple user interface and a large 2.7 inch LCD screen. 

Intelligent technology for perfect results The LUMIX XS1's Intelligent Auto (iA) capability can be set with one-touch and prevents out-of-focus photos.  With iA it is easy for any standard of photographer to take great photos anywhere, at any time.

The iA's Intelligent Scene Selector automatically recognizes your conditions and selects the perfect mode for you. Whether you are taking an image in a poorly lit nightclub or a vacation shot in the midday sun, the LUMIX XS1 will do all the complicated work for you, ensuring amazing quality every time.
