Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, We are going to illustrate Nikon A900 and Panasonic ZS60 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon A900 has external dimensions of 113 x 67 x 40 mm (4.45 x 2.64 x 1.57″) and weighs 289 g (0.64 lb / 10.19 oz) (including batteries). Panasonic ZS60 has external dimensions of 112 x 64 x 38 mm (4.41 x 2.52 x 1.5″) and weighs 282 g (0.62 lb / 9.95 oz) (including batteries).

Here is the back view size comparison of Nikon A900 and Panasonic ZS60.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon A900 and Panasonic ZS60.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Panasonic ZS60 is 7g lighter than the Nikon A900 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Nikon Coolpix A900 nor Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS60 (Lumix DMC-TZ80) provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

On the other hand, Nikon A900 features a Tilting screen
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over the head levels whereas the Panasonic ZS60 has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to A900.
