The LUMIX DMC-S3 and LUMIX DMC-S1 are powered by Venus Engine VI image processor, which accounts for their fast response times and image quality. They feature Intelligent Auto (iA) technologies, such as MEGA OIS optical image stabilization, Intelligent ISO control, Face Detection and Intelligent Scene Selector. Both cameras can capture 1280x720p HD videos at 30fps.
