Panasonic announced its Lumix DMC-XS1 digital camera will come in 10 different patterns in addition to the three colors already available. The new design concepts are based on the following six genres: digital, floral nature, gift wrapping, Japanese traditional, pop art, and textures. Of course, as Panasonic notes the XS1 is not just a "style statement" but a slim and capable digital camera.
When it comes to specs, the Lumix XS1 features a 16.1 megapixel 1/2.3-inch CCD image sensor coupled with a wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens (24mm to 120mm equivalent). The camera will record 720p video at 30fps thanks to a motion picture button on top of the camera. iA (Intelligent Auto) mode takes advantage of the MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) to snap quality photos automatically.
