Panasonic offers Lumix XS1 digital camera with custom designs

Panasonic has been busy this week trotting out several new digital cameras. A few days ago, we talked about the new LF1 and G6 digital cameras from Panasonic. Panasonic is back with another new digital camera featuring 10 custom designs on the outside. The camera is called the Lumix XS1.

The camera boasts a thin profile that Panasonic claims is the world's thinnest for a camera featuring a 5x retractable zoom lens and optical image stabilization. The camera has a 24 mm ultra-wide-angle lens and has 13 in-camera creative effects. Panasonic also integrates its Mega Optical Image Stabilizer technology into the camera to keep your images blur free.

The XS1 offers 16.1-megapixel resolution and has an aperture range of F2.8-6.9. The camera's focal length is equivalent to 24-120 mm in 35mm camera. It also supports the recording of HD resolution video.

Bursts can be shot in high-speed mode and rated 10 frames per second at reduced resolution. The camera is also now available with 10 different custom designs on the outside of the camera body. It offers designs like various animal skins, camouflage, flowers, and several others. The camera can be ordered right now in any of the 10 new designs, but Panasonic didn't offer the official pricing details.
