Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Panasonic ZS60, which was introduced in January 2016 is a Small Sensor Superzoom camera with a 18.0MP 1/2.3-inch sensor whereas Olympus TG-3, which was introduced in March 2014 is a Waterproof camera with a 16.0MP 1/2.3-inch sensor. There is 21 months difference between ZS60 and TG-3 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger ZS60, especially in sensor tech.
Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Panasonic ZS60 is ranked #7
out of 244 Small Sensor Superzoom cameras with an overall score of 61 whereas Olympus TG-3 is ranked #4
out of 75 Waterproof cameras with an overall score of 54.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Panasonic ZS60 and Olympus TG-3 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Panasonic ZS60 and Olympus TG-3 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
