Of course the lens, sensor and image processor work their magic on video recordings too. The Lumix FZ60 records Full HD 1080 60i video in AVCHD and MP4 formats and a separate, dedicated button on top of the camera is all you need to instantly start recording video.
Assisting the shooter in both photo and video are a wealth of Lumix functions. POWER O.I.S. is an image stabilization system that works throughout the 24x zoom and compensates for any camera shake to produce sharp images even in low light and even when shooting video while walking. Creative Control Mode in photo offers eight new filters to add creativity to your images and Creative Video allows the user to set shutter speed and apertures for further video image control. Lumix's popular iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode integrates POWER O.I.S. and all of the FZ60's assistive functions such as AF Tracking and Face Recognition, to give total image control to the camera. With such a celebrated system, letting the camera do all the work is one way to get great images. But if you prefer to use your own internal intelligence system, the FZ60 also offers complete manual control for advanced shooters or those looking to learn along the way.
