The focal length is 24-120mm as per 35mm terms, which can get extended to 8x via digital zoom use that Panasonic calls Intelligent zoom. To keep the images sharp, the camera makes use of mega optical image stabilization.

The filters can also be applied within a playback mode by using the creative retouch option. Videos are recorded in high-definition and images that are produced contain good detail and color reproduction and are mostly well-exposed. However, portraits with good skin tones but red-eye are a general problem.
The white balance of the camera is good and is well under, both fluorescent and incandescent lights. The incandescent preset offers a bit of color cast under the incandescent light. There is no fluorescent preset that can be availed, therefore you would have to use the auto white balance.

The panoramas are well joined but the detail achieved isn’t too good but good enough to be shared over the web. XS1 also comes with color modes that can be selected when you are in normal shoot mode.
