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.
Travels LightThe 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 ZoomThe 24mm-720mm (30x) zoom features legendary LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens optics to keep you close to the action from any distance.
Built-In StabilityHYBRID 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.
4K Video CaptureWith 4 times the resolution of 1080p, 4K video delivers clearer, sharper, more beautifully detailed imaging.
Recover Detail in Low Light ConditionsAn 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and Venus Engine deliver bright, colorful pictures in dimly lit environments, with reduced image defects.For even greater control over the attributes of the final image, the LUMIX ZS-60 features RAW capture.
Professional High-Speed Auto-FocusingDepth 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.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.
DSLR-like Lens Ring ControlThe lens-mounted control ring can be easily customized to your favorite settings like aperture control, shutter speed, zoom, focus, and many others.
Capture Now, Focus Later4K 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.
