Unfortunately neither Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS60 (Lumix DMC-TZ80) nor Nikon Coolpix S9900 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Panasonic ZS60 and Nikon S9900's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
On the other hand, Nikon S9900 sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over the head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. Panasonic ZS60's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to S9900.
