PANASONIC LUMIX point-and-shoot digital cameras are known among camera enthusiasts for reliability and innovative features. The LUMIX ZS60 brings the legendary optical performance of a 30x (24-720mm) LEICA DC Lens to a highly portable point-and-shoot travel camera.
Traditionalists will love the hands-on manual feel of a lens-mounted control ring and thumbwheel, plus the familiarity of an eye-level electronic viewfinder. The modern enthusiast will love the WiFi mobile device controllability and next-generation flexibility that 4K video and 4K PHOTO modes bring to the creative experience.
4K Video Capture
With 4 times the resolution of 1080p, 4K video delivers clearer, sharper, more beautifully detailed imaging.
* When recording 4K, use a UHS Speed Class 3 rated SD card.
HYBRID O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabilizer) with 5-axis correction provides blur-free handheld video with continuous compensation for camera movement.
The Level Shot Function* maintains the horizon even if the camera is tilted.
The compact LUMIX ZS60 travels light with a heavy-duty list of features, like 30x Ultra-zoom and innovative 4K Video / 4K PHOTO capture.
30x LEICA DC Lens Zoom
The 24mm-720mm (30x) zoom features legendary LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens optics to keep you close to the action from any distance.
Recover Detail in Low Light Conditions
An 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and Venus Engine deliver bright, colorful pictures in dimly lit environments, with reduced image defects.
For greater control over the attributes of the final image, use the RAW capture feature in the LUMIX ZS60.
Professional High-Speed Auto-Focusing
Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology instantly calculates distance to drive the focus mechanism in one continuous movement for faster focusing. DFD also increases the stability of continuous focusing while shooting video.
Enjoy Starlight Auto-Focusing
Low Light Auto Focus makes moonlight photography easier even without an AF assist lamp. The LUMIX ZS60 fully integrates Starlight Auto Focus for improved imaging of the night skies.
Light Composition processing selects brighter pixels to provide more dramatic imaging in situations like fireworks and nighttime scenery.
4K Live Cropping
4K Live Cropping enables recording frames to move while the camera maintains a fixed position, providing greater stability while panning or zooming.
Seeing is Believing
A Live View Finder (LVF) improves framing and viewing under harsh sunlight.
DSLR-like Lens Ring Control
In addition to manual aperture control, shutter speed, zoom and focus, the lens-mounted control ring can be easily customized to your favorite settings.
Capture Now, Focus Later
4K technology enables Post Focus function to refocus images after they are captured. Simply capture the scene, review the image on the camera's LCD and touch any portion of the photo to refocus.
Never Miss That MOMENT Again with 4K PHOTO
4K video technology enables Ultra HD photography with the innovative 4K PHOTO feature. Simply capture ultra high-resolution 4K video at super-fast 30 frames per second, then press Play, Pause and Save to extract the exact instant you want from individual 4K video frames to create a 4K still image.

- Using the supplied battery.
- Starting recording 30 seconds after the camera is turned on. (When the optical image stabilizer function is set to [ON].) - Recording once every 30 seconds with full flash every second recording.
- Rotating the zoom lever from Tele to Wide or vice versa in every recording.
- The number of recordable pictures varies depending on the recording interval time.
- If the recording interval time becomes longer, the number of recordable pictures decreases.
- CIPA is an abbreviation of [Camera & Imaging Products Association].
- These are standard times taken at a temperature of 23 oC (73.4 oF) and a humidity of 50%RH.
- The time available for recording varies depending on the environment, the interval between recordings, and the manner of use.
- Actual recordable time is the time available for recording when repeating actions such as switching the power supply [ON] / [OFF], starting/stopping recording, zoom operation etc.
- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures.
- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U3)" when recording motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K] or [4K PHOTO].
(SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.)
- Maximum time to record motion pictures continuously with [AVCHD] in [FHD/60fps] is 29 minutes 59 seconds.
- Maximum time to record motion pictures continuously with [MP4] in [4K] is 15 minutes.
- Maximum time to record motion pictures continuously with [MP4] in [FHD] [HD] [VGA] is 29 minutes 59 seconds or up to 4 GB.
- Maximum time to record High Speed motion pictures continuously with [MP4] in [HD] is 7 minutes 29 seconds.
- Maximum time to record High Speed motion pictures continuously with [MP4] in [VGA] is 3 minutes 44 seconds.
For [4K] video output, use an HDMI cable that has the HDMI logo on it, and that is described as"4K compatible".
