My family and I are constantly traveling. I love taking them to new places as much as I can, normally we do at least four major trips each year, and I love sharing my reviews of all the places I visit on this blog. A detailed guide for travel camera review with information about how the Lumix ZS60 by Panasonic performs and operates.
But telling a story isn’t the same if you can’t get the feel of what we were experiencing hands-on. That’s why photos are so important and the reason why I’m always carrying my camera.
However, it can be a bit tricky when you are traveling with two small kids, dealing with bags, hopping on and off buses and handling a huge camera at all times. There are times when no matter what you do you lose, you either smash the camera or lose a kid.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my camera. It takes photos with great quality, but I wish it didn’t take that much space. I also wanted something lighter than a professional one. But finding a compact camera that takes photos with the same quality of a professional one is almost impossible. But I’m always with my eye open in case one shows up.

I also learned that Panasonic joined the TravelingMom.com network. Its members have been exploring Walt Disney World and documenting their experience with the Lumix ZS60. You can follow their adventures with #TMOMZS60 in twitter and Instagram.
They are also offering a free travel kit whenever you buy the camera from determined stores. Check out this article to get the list of stores where the offer is valid.
