Product information

Professional results in the palm of your hand. The LUMIX DMC-TZ60 boasts a 30x optical zoom, EVF and Wi-Fi with NFC in an ultra slim body. Save your memories in remarkable quality with the 18.1-megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor. In addition to its remarkable optical zoom power of 30x, this camera features a large number of manual functions to boost your creativity, such as a LVF (Live View Finder), a Control Ring, RAW compatibility, and Focus Peaking, all in an ultra-compact body. This enables highly detailed shooting that covers everything from ordinary snapshots to travel scenes.

Wi-Fi, NFC & GPS
Pair with a touch using Near Field Communication technology and enjoy remote control, instant backup and more. Along with GPS and GLONASS support, geotagging your images is simple and accurate.

MOS sensor
The 18.1-megapixel MOS sensor photographs and records in stunning detail. Superior noise reduction means cleaner pictures at all ISO, even up to ISO6400.

High shooting rate
Capture every detail, even when photographing fast moving action on the street or on the pitch. Shoot at speeds up to 10fps at full resolution with mechanical shutter and 5fps when using continuous autofocus. Along with quick start-up, no moment is going to get away.

Electronic viewfinder
The LUMIX TZ60’s Live View Finder (EVF) lets you shoot like a pro, helping you get stable framing even when using the 30x ultra zoom. It also allows you to be much more versatile with your photography and movie-making. The 0.2 inch 100% field of view 200K-dot equivalent resolution LVF is ideal if you want to concentrate on the subject’s motion while panning, or when shooting in bright sunlight and the camera’s LCD screen difficult to see clearly.

Manual control
Take SLR control of your pictures with the Control Ring. Set zoom, aperture, shutter speed and creative filter with a twist so you can focus on framing the moment.

RAW shooting
Serious photographers shoot in RAW format. This high information file type is the digital equivalent of a negative and contains much more information than JPEG. This means you can do more in post-production and enjoy higher quality results.

Full HD video
When a picture won’t do, record in Full HD in MP4 and H.264 formats. Smooth progressive 50p recording looks smooth on your big screen TV and with full 30x zoom support, getting closer to the action is easier than ever.

Product description I bought this online with ease and collected it next day from my local Waitrose. However, I haven't yet been able to use it since it cannot be used without a memory card, a fact that the product description fails to point out.Had it done so, I should have ordered a memory card as well and could now be writing a practical review. As it is, I am still waiting to try out my new camera. 05 September 2014
So far, so good. I am still learning how to get the best from this camera. It seems to offer all that I expected. It has an optical view finder, good zoom and there is less delay when I take a shot than there was with my previous compact camera. My only grumble is the length of the user manual CD. It will take ages before I can get to the bits that interest me. 13 August 2014
Excellent compact, camera best yet. Have had several earlier models in the TZ range but this beats the lot. Really pleased to have a proper (if smallish) viewfinder. Zoom is powerful and flexible with the image stabiliser being effective. Really pleased that they have retained the ability to take single shots while recording movies. Plenty of extra features and good value compared with what you get with other makes. Still fits in your pocket (or handbag!);. 12 August 2014
excellent compact camera easy to use-great zoom-many useful features-intuitive menu 12 August 2014
Brilliant easy to use camera I bought this before a four week road trip around the US pacific north west. It has been brilliant throughout and taken great shots. The wifi upload to my iPad has been easy and comforting. The only drawback has been battery life which I can extend by turning gos off. I've also found the wifi needs to be switched off after upload or it will drain the battery quickly trying to reconnect. Overall, I am very pleased. 08 August 2014
Great compact with a super zoom Have previously owned Panasonic cameras and I had to purchase one due to having left the old one at home. I have always been pleased with the make of camera and decided to go for this model due to the enhanced 30x optical zoom and also the fact the camera has a view finder. It has a lot of options for a compact camera and takes really excellent pictures. You won't be disappointed if you choose to buy this camera. 02 August 2014
So far, so good! Purchased this TZ60 from John Lewis' Cardiff Store as a replacement for a Canon SX270HS. The majority of reviewers praised the Panasonic Lumix TZ60, and now having used it, I tend to agree. The 'settings' are different to the Canon system, but the build quality along with the images produced are first class. It's a joy to use and is great to handle. If I were to find one draw-back, then that would be the size of the 'buttons'. They could have been a little bigger. Buy with confidence from a manufacturer that' produces well made and very reliable goods! The retailer? The service from staff at the Cardiff Store was of a very high standard; such service is seldom found in other high street shops. Thanks! 30 July 2014
A great improvement.... Much more professional build quality now its made of Magnesium alloy & Polycarbonate. The removal of the touch screen capability that was on the previous TZ40 is a real bonus in my view as no more accidental shutter releases via the bottom right area of the LCD screen. I find the addition of the Viewfinder is a real bonus even though its 'compact'i in size. Raw capability useful. With the 30x optical zoom I find this Lumix model meets my travel & carry daily camera needs. Did consider a Bridge camera but this is such a good all round unit. Recommend Lowepro Tahoe 30 case which fits it well but JL unfortunately don't stock that case. Other retailers do. 21 July 2014
