Panasonic Lumix ZS60 review

 

Panasonic ZS60 with 30x zoom is everything a travel camera should be, but it's time to ditch the small sensor.

At $449, the ZS60 is a good travel camera overall. It’s relatively light, and it’s very compact considering it’s packing a 30x zoom. The older ZS50, based on customer ratings, was very popular, and while manufacturers oftentimes get criticized for not...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 Review

 

Announced at this year's CES, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 (also known as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS60) features a 30x optical zoom (24-720mm equivalent) and is a replacement for last year's TZ70. It sits below the new TZ100 - last year's TZ57 has been...

Panasonic has added some interesting technology to its superzoom segment of the market, and it's interesting to see that the Lumix DMC-TZ80 now represents the more affordable of the company's duo of new travel compacts.

Panasonic ZS60 Review

 

Are you looking for a camera with a powerful zoom lens in a pocket-friendly package? In 2015, Panasonic catered to this need with its Lumix ZS50 digital camera. A year later, it follows up with the Panasonic ZS60, offering a far-reaching 30x optical...

Available from mid-March 2016, the Panasonic ZS60 will be sold in either silver or black body colors. Pricing in the US market is set at around US$450 or thereabouts.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS60 Review: Good for Travel

 

The DMC-ZS60 is an affordable alternative to Panasonic's DMC-LX100, but it makes some compromises to get to a sub-$500 price.

Powerful 30X zoom lens ; solid, compact design ; touch-screen LCD

Very limited low-light capability, unimpressive 4K video with wobbly distortion

This pocketable camera has a 30X zoom lens and a good price, but low-light and 4K-video performance could be better.

Panasonic Lumix TZ80 / ZS60 review

 

Panasonic's Lumix TZ80, or ZS60 as it's known in North America, is a pocket-super-zoom with a 30x optical range, 18 Megapixel sensor, 4k video, touchscreen and built-in electronic viewfinder. Announced in January 2016 alongside the flagship TZ100 /...

Built-in EVF and 3-inch touch-screen ; 30x / 24-720mm equivalent zoom range ; 4k movies, 4k photo and 4k Post Focus modes ; Lots of manual control, customisation and support for RAW files ; Built-in Wifi

4k video suffers from noise & less detail than models with bigger sensors ; Screen is fixed - doesn't tilt ; Approaching the price of 1in sensor compacts, albeit with less zoom

The Lumix TZ80 / ZS60 is the natural successor to the TZ70 / ZS50, the previous flagship travel zoom from Panasonic. Forgetting about the TZ100 / ZS100 for a moment, the TZ80 / ZS60 remains the obvious choice for those looking to pack an awesomely long...

Panasonic Lumix ZS60 Digital Camera Review

 

Have zoom, will travel.

While it may seem silly to buy a dedicated point-and-shoot when most people already have a smartphone, a travel zoom is another beast altogether. Though cameras like the ZS60 are a bit pricey, they offer incredible zoom ratios that no smartphone can...

Panasonic TZ80

 

The Panasonic TZ80 is a compact camera for people who want to have it all. It has a huge 30x optical zoom, but is very small and can even shoot 4K video.

Panasonic Lumix TZ80 review: Can't Touch This

 

The Panasonic TZ range is hugely popular when it comes to dedicated compact cameras, especially if you're looking for big zoom in a relatively small package. In 2016 the range is diversifying: 2015's TZ70 is replaced by the similar TZ80 (or SZ60 for...

Touchscreen controls added, 4K video capture, fast autofocus, 30x zoom versatility in pocketable body, image stabilisation, mode dial and lens control ring for easy adjustment and functionality

No tilt/vari-angle screen, lens limitations at full zoom in low-light, 4K/Post Focus mode fun but not must-buy features, autofocus slows a lot in low light

If you're after an affordable compact camera with usable viewfinder and considerable zoom in a pocketable package then there's nothing better than the Lumix TZ80. The addition of touch controls finally bring it into the modern age - although the lack...
