On the front is a Lumix DC Vario 5x optical zoom lens equivalent to 24mm wide-angle to mm in 35mm equivalent terms, with mega optical image stabilisation. The camera records full HD video, takes panoramic photos, and has a number of creative effects that are also available on panoramics.
For portrait photos there is a built in beauty re-touch feature that can soften skin, alter foundation colour, and apply makeup. You'll also find the battery and memory card compartment, which features a MicroSD card slot.
In playback there is the option to retouch photos where you can auto retouch, beauty retouch, or creative retouch - applying the same creative filters available in photo mode. Menus - The menus are very clearly laid out, with built in guidance explaining what settings are for, and the menus are split into record, video and setup menus as well as playback options when in playback mode.
The Q. Menu button gives quick access to common settings on the screen such as image size, white balance, ISO, and others depending what mode you are in.

The cameras CIPA rating stats that it should be possible to get shots from a fully charged battery - again fairly typical for an ultra compact camera - and a spare battery is recommended.
Speed - We took a number of shots to test the camera's responsiveness, from switch on to first photo, shot to shot, focusing speed etc. We take a number of shots and then use the average to ensure accurate and consistent tests, making it easy to compare with other cameras.
There is also high speed burst with flash at full resolution. High speed burst at 3 megapixels lets you shoot at roughly fps for up to 40 shots.
Focus and shutter response are also very quick.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS3 Manuals
As a photographer, it's easy to dismiss small digital compacts for larger, manual control cameras.

So if you leave all your equipment behind, you're left a phone or similar.
