It is just about time for all of those products that were shown off at CES to begin arriving on store shelves. Today Panasonic announced the release of its Lumix DMC-XS1 compact digital camera.
Featuring a 16.1MP imaging sensor, the Lumix DMC-XS1 is a very formidable entry into the compact point and shoot camera market. A 24mm 5x zoom lens brings everything into focus up front, while a 2.7-inch TFT display on the back lets you check for the perfect capture.
The Lumix DMC-XS1 is capable of 720p video capture at 30 FPS. A 690mAh rechargeable battery is also stuffed inside the 17mm thick package, which should provide for about 300 images, before needing to be recharged. Panasonic has created 10 unique case designs for the Lumix DMC-XS1 which should appeal to the younger market.
