I switched to using a Panasonic Lumix several years ago and it’s been my go to point and shot camera ever since. You may recall I reviewed the ZS40, which until is the camera I have been using. I won’t break down a comparison of the two. They are quite similar the main two differences is the ZS60 has 4K technology and a touch screen. The touch screen is super handy and the 4k quality is stunning. I happen not to take photos in 4K because the files size is so large, but if this is a need for you I strongly recommend this camera.
If you like taking photos of food this camera is great. It has two settings for food pictures. Here is a photo of some salsa I bought at the grocery store. The camera actually makes it look better than it really was.

Tips for using the Panasonic ZS60
Step back and zoom in – It improves the background and bring it in closer to the main subject.
Take a moment to level the shot.
Use lens dial for exposure – Visually adjust the EV+/- with the lens dial
Rule of thirds – use lines to move they eye across a photo, never back to the photographer.
To take a great night shot switch to iA mode on top then click menu and choose handheld night shot
