Purchasing a camera is a big deal these days. Our lives are so busy that sometimes we forget how precious family memories are. Our photos are so very important!  Vacations, life events, or even a simple trip to the park can all be captured and treasured forever. That should make the decision to buy a camera a no brainer.  A camera that is user friendly with quality photos, fun filters and impressive video clarity is a must have. Fortunately, I found the perfect one.

The Panasonic DMC-ZS60 is a breath of fresh air as far as electronics go. Exceptional photo quality with one simple click, plus various editing options allow you to personalize and enhance your pictures in a durable and compact device. It’s the ideal camera for all busy lifestyles.

I was given a Panasonic DMC-ZS60 Digital Camera to use and review and I am doing just that! I underwent brain surgery just three weeks ago, and this opportunity could not have come at a better time. Why, you ask? Well, being back on my feet…somewhat, I’ve had time to reflect on life, the privilege that it is and what is truly important. There is only one answer for me for that- family. I needed to unplug from electronics, disconnect from social media and then make my memories and capture them with a real camera. And by “real,” I mean a camera NOT built into a cell phone. I wanted a camera that captures moments and sparks up nostalgia without the buzzing, beeping and melodic ringing that the distraction of a cell phone brings. I needed to strip away the complex and leave room for the simple. Take it back old school if you will. This past weekend was my first outing post operation. I chose to embrace the ordinary and commonplace in my daily routine that I had been taking for granted before my life was forever changed. I met the days with joy, humility and no expectations. And thanks to my new camera, I can relive those moments over and over.

Amazing Features of the Panasonic DMC-ZS60

I don’t want to underestimate this camera because there are so many features:

  • 4K video capture (For sharper video with more detail and clarity)
  • 18 megapixels…Yep EIGHTEEN!
  • WIFI
  • Auto focusing at high speeds – no more blurry action shots!!
  • Touch screen operation
  • Creative control mode -Take pictures and select preferred filters
  • Panorama shot mode
  •  Live video cropping
  • Plus MUCH MORE!

With that being said and all features highlighted, this camera was not complex to operate.  The Panasonic DMC-ZS60 is durable, compact and so simple to use…even for me.  Simply point and shoot!  Capturing kids’ sporting events has never been so easy, especially when there is chaos and excitement and your hands are shaking…or maybe that’s just me? The quality of the photos blew me away! So many fun options that are 100% user friendly. A weekend like any other for my family turned into a beautiful adventure that I took pride in experiencing – and I’ll remember it for years to come, thanks to the great pictures taken with my Panasonic DMC-ZS60.
