Tech.UK Conclusion on Image Quality

And in the conclusion: "Probably the only issues we might take with the TZ60 are over the AF system and the colour reproduction. After all the hype about how fast the AF was supposed to be, it wasn’t something we really noticed. That’s not to say it was slow - there was certainly some hunting at maximum zoom and during darker conditions - it’s just that it didn’t seem like anything much to shout about either.

As for the colour reproduction, it’s not so much that the colours don't look good, it’s more that you get what we like to refer to as the ‘Samsung Effect’. The monitor on the rear tends to make colours look far more saturated in previews than when you upload them to your computer. Either prepare for some disappointment or better would be to adjust the output of the LCD to something more realistic."

Yes Daniel, the ZS40 apparently isn’t far off being shipped.

Another “mini-review” of the TZ60 has just appeared: http://tech.uk.msn.com/cameras/panasonic-lumix-tz60-review.

The reviewer is obviously a big fan of touchscreens, and he would prefer a touchscreen to an EVF. I’m not sure that many people on the forum would agree with that.

He says ”the picture quality is generally excellent” but unfortunately he hasn’t posted any actual sample images so others can judge that for themselves, which is a pity.
