Summary: I was disappointed with the product. I have a Sony HX20 which is similar but has no viewfinder. I thought the viewfinder would come in handy. Unfortunately, the camera picture quality does not compare with the Sony. So it sits.

Summary: The packaging is misleading. Nowhere on it does it say TZ60. We had to closely compare it with what is pictured to be sure what we bought.

Excerpt: I didn't want to pack my SLR to Europe so I considered this camera then chose a Canon G16 instead. I love the G16, awesome camera. If I could have only one camera, this would probably be it. However, when my mom's cheap Nikon broke I bought a Panasonic ZS40 for her.
Excerpt: This Panasonic is a lot of features in a really, really little package. All the manual control you could ask for, a superzoom lens (35mm equiv from 24mm to 720mm), an actual viewfinder, saving to RAW - this is the perfect portable everyday tool for me.
Excerpt: Technically, size and function wise, it's fine. I bought one to use as DSLR backup for my lad's wedding in the USA, which it did admirably. But - the front lens cover and mechanism is extremely flimsy, and broke - it was always carried in a soft case.
Summary: Amazing!! Very good manual focus, great zoom and fast zooming, super fast auto-focus, super quick power-on, very good stabilization, high sensitivity sensor, very useful WiFi applications like remote zoom and aperture controls and shutter, etc., in such small pocket-size compact digital camera!!

While the camera is mostly matte black--a beautiful matte black

Excerpt: I purchased this camera and wondered when I was outside with my polarized sunglasses on, why the camera would not seem to turn on when I pressed the power button. It worked inside. The I realized that the polarization of the screen was at 90 degrees to my sunglass lens, rendering it black.
