Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60 Point & Shoot Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Panasonic in the recent times has emerged as a new strong player in the market which was earlier a monopoly of 2 giants, Canon and Nikon and that has not been a simple task, Panasonic had to bring out the finest products in the market, one of which is Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60 Point & Shoot. The camera belongs to the most pocket friendly class of cameras from Panasonic super zoom cameras. Released alongside Panasonic Lumix FZ200, both the cameras have pretty much the same zoom range, the only difference is that of the sensor and a number of other betterments which include a constant f2.8 aperture, , support for RAW, articulated screen and high resolution electronic viewfinder at a higher price point. Panasonic is in the habit of updating lenses in the FZ range on alternate models, but Panasonic Lumix FZ60 retains the 25-600mm (equivalent) zoom range that we've seen on two previous models FZ48 and FZ45 before it. To be very frank, the camera is clearly overshadowed by tough competitions like Sony Cyber-Shot HX200V Fujifilm FinePix HS30 EXR and Canon Powershot SX40, but there are still very few models that can match its 25mm wide angle field of view. Metal Oxide Semiconductor, or simply MOS sensor, that is what Panasonic has equipped its premium superzoom cameras with, although the cheaper one had only managed a CCD one. This time perhaps, the company has taken an unexpected turn and brought about a new 16 Megapixel MOS sensor for this device.

 

Design and Build Quality

When talking about ergonomics in terms of size and weight, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60 Point & Shoot is, give or take a millimetre here and a few grams there, the same as the camera it replaces, but there are a few external changes. On the top panel the on/off switch has moved and is now located adjacent to the mode dial. Where the old switch had a sideways sliding movement the new one is rotary and moves like the hands on a clock - from 5 o'clock to 4 o'clock switches the camera on. The dedicated record button and focus button are joined by a continuous shooting button. The mode dial itself has been simplified by the removal of the individual scene mode positions which are now accessed via the menu with the mode dial in the SCN position. In addition to the PASM modes there's Intelligent Auto, Creative Control, two custom positions, and Movie mode. As before, the twin stereo mics are mounted in the top of the pop-up flash housing, but there's no hotshoe as on the premium FZ200 model.

 

Focus and Face Detection

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60 Point & Shoot features a brand new Light Speed AF autofocus system, which proved to be very fast on Panasonic Lumix ZS20. The camera is capable of shooting at up to 5.5 frames per second with AF or 12fps with focus and exposure set with the first shot -- both at full resolution. Panasonic is also promising a startup time of less than a second. Panasonic Lumix FZ200 can also capture high-speed movies at 120fps and 240fps for slow-motion clips in addition to full HD in AVCHD or MP4 formats.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60 Point & Shoot has a 24x zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent range of 25-600mm. It's the third generation model to use this lens and Panasonic's decision to stick with it rather than extend it might seem surprising given the 30-35x zoom ranges now on offer from the competition. Instead, the company has developed a 'constant aperture' version which maintains its maximum f2.8 aperture across the entire zoom range. Unfortunately this feature is only available on the premium FZ200, so as before, Panasonic Lumix FZ60’s lens slows down to f5.6 at the 600mm end of the range.

Screen and Menus

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60 Point & Shoot retains the 3 inch 460k pixel LCD panel of its predecessor. The 3in diagonal and 3:2 aspect ratio remains the same as before, so there's thin black bars to the sides of 4:3 shaped photos or above and below 16:9 frames. It's a fine screen and provides a bright contrasty view. The menu provides brightness control as well as contrast/saturation and even colour balance controls but none of this makes up for the fact that, with Panasonic Lumix FZ200, Cyber-shot HX200V, FinePix HS30 EXR and PowerShot SX40 all offering articulated screens, Panasonic Lumix FZ60's screen feels a little ordinary. Even if you're not that bothered about being able to flip the screen, the side-hinged screen of Panasonic FZ200 allows you to turn it inwards for protection when you're not using it.

Battery

Let us now discuss what powers the Panasonic Lumix FZ60, well here the device takes a DMW-BMB9E Lithium-Ion battery. This is the same battery used in Panasonic Lumix FZ47 with a power output rating of 895mAh, but the company has managed to squeeze and additional 12 percent from it by clever energy management extending the number of shots on a single charge to 450. While it's good to have longer battery life, remaining time is indicated by a three segment LED, which is fairly crude by comparison with the time remaining readout provided by the Cyber-shot HX200V's info-Lithium battery.

 

Video Mode

Like its predecessor, the Panasonic Lumix FZ60 can shoot HD movies at 1080i resolution at 50 or 60 fps (from 25p or 30p sensor output) depending on region. As before, there's the option to encode movies as AVCHD files, in which case they're saved in a 'Private' folder separately from the still image files, or using the more edit-friendly MPEG-4 codec saved as a QuickTime .mov file along with the still images.

 

Sensors

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60 Point & Shoot has a newly designed 16.1 Megapixel MOS sensor that produces images with a maximum size of 4608 x 3456 pixels. Images are saved as JPEG files at one of two quality/compression ratios; the best quality Fine setting produces images with a file size of approximately 5.5 to 7.5MB.

Pros

Great image quality at base ISO.
Excellent high ISO noise performance.
Programmable Fn buttons.
New Creative control filters.

 

Cons

Narrower zoom range than rivals.
Disappointing burst shooting.
No RAW mode.
Fixed non-articulated LCD screen.
