Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS3

14 Reasons why Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS3 is better

than the average

1.Appreciably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
10fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
103gvs 376g (the average)
vs 65.5g (best: HTC Re)
3.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
4.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
54.4mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
92.2mmvs 96.6mm (the average)
vs 39mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V)
14mmvs 51mm (the average)
vs 13mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
8.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
9.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
10.Can be charged via standard USB cable
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
It can be charged and operated with a standard USB cable connected to your computer, or with a USB power supply.
11.Reasonably wider aperture at minimum focal length
2.8vs 3.0 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
12.Appreciably longer exposure time
60svs 37s (the average)
vs 3600s (best: Hasselblad X1D-50c)
When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
13.Notably shorter minimum focal length
24mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
14.Significantly smaller diameter
24mmvs 58mm (the average)
vs 20mm (best: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70)
