Panasonic Introduces The LUMIX FZ60 Cameras

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Panasonic has introduced the new LUMIX DMC-FZ60, the latest in the FZ series. The cameras come with a optical zoom and includes manual operation over both photo and full-HD video recording.

The LUMIX FZ60 is equipped with a LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT 25mm ultra wide-angle lens with a 24x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 25-600mm). Zoom can be increased to 48x equivalent. A nano surface coating technology minimizes light reflection for the entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens resulting.

The LUMIX FZ60’s 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor combines with the image processing LSI Venus Engine. The LUMIX FZ60 shoots 10 fps (frames per second) in 16.1-megapixel full resolution with mechanical shutter and 5 fps with continuous AF.  Its start-up time is approximately 0.9 seconds.

The cameras record full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60i (NTSC, sensor output 30p) videos in AVCHD (MPEG-4 / H.264) format or 30p in MP4.  A separate button on the top of the camera body allows the user to instantly start recording videos while shooting photos without having to change any settings.

Additional features of the LUMIX FZ60 include:

  • 3.0-inch, 460,000-dot Wide Viewing Angle Intelligent LCD screen
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode
  • Panorama Shot mode
  • 3D Photo mode

Pricing and availability for the LUMIX DMC-FZ60 will be announced 30 days prior to shipping.
