Panasonic Lumix TZ60 Review - The Panasonic Lumix TZ60 could well be the most complete travel compact to date. We dig a bit deeper in our full review...
Panasonic Lumix TZ60 Review – Design
Despite featuring a plethora of advanced technology, the TZ60 manages to not be too bulky and will still easily fit in to a small bag or trouser pocket – one of the key credentials of a travel compact.
The control layout is relatively simple, with a single scroll wheel on the rear of the camera taking care of the majority of camera settings.
That being said, the TZ60 does benefit from a ring around the front of the lens that operates as a secondary control input, even controlling the camera’s zoom in automatic shooting mode.
There’s also the benefit of a function button which can be customised to offer one-touch access to more commonly used shooting functionality.
In terms of the camera’s build quality, Panasonic has upgraded the shell of the body to now comprise of a mix part polycarbonate and part magnesium alloy.
This, combined with a textured hand grip on the front of the camera and a raised thumbrest on the rear, gives the camera a premium feel and allows for a solid hold when shooting.
