A beautifully made and extremely versatile camera.Superb value for money.

Summary: I have used the earlier FZ20 for four years,all over the world in my travels with huge success,in that it is so light and so very versatile,so that when the FZ60 was announced with a staggering 24 times zoom it was a MUST buy.It is light.
Summary: I forgot to mention the other camera FZ200 you mention in your review. I actually was tempted, went to see it in fact. What put me off: Heavier & Bigger, the raw aspect was good but I have that with my old Olympus, it's OK if you have hours to waste!
wonderful Bridge camera to go from point and shoot to Pro

Summary: such a great camera to progress to, Has the same functions as a dslr. compact, nice to handle comfortable to use. I have learnt a lot using this camera, The photos I have to admit impressed me to the point that I have to pinch myself wow what great photos With my trusty photography book for...
Pros: Not as heavy as a DSLR, yet can produce some pretty outstanding pictures; Great zoom; Battery power length's pretty decent, Lense cap is a bit fiddly. Relies on pinching plastic clips inward, which can be a little awkward, if you have chunky fingers or long nails
Summary: I bought this camera because my son does film and television work. The update photographs for growing children, need to be submitted at least once every 6 months, sometimes every 3 months for children that change a lot!
Summary: I thought long and hard about getting a bridge camera but was impressed by the number of positive reviews for this one. My compact has done 8 years of sterling service and still takes great pictures but the zoom is limited and the scope for 'playing' properly is limited.
Summary: Went to this camera from a compact. Apart from being bulkier and taking more time to use (as expected) this camera does everything I need it to and more. Zoom is great. Pictures are crisp and clear. Great value for the price I paid and a great step up from the compact. Practice will make perfect!
Summary: The camera is fairly light but very well made.48 times zoom WOW. It has a viewfinder as well as a three inch screen.Would recommend this camera to any serious or amateur photographer.Buy this one you will not regret it.
