A heads-up for anyone with a Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ60.
What is apparently a common fault develops which results in the camera becoming inoperable. a system message appears on screen "System Error - Focus". Before you pay for any repair, even if out of warranty, complain to Panasonic UK Support, emphasising the camera is not fit for purpose; you will be advised to send it to their preferred Repair Centre, and they will instruct you to advise the repair centre that Panasonic is prepared to offer "Cost Assistance" on its repair. To fix this problem on what is a £410 camera is normally about £110, so worth pursuing with Panasonic. To their credit they do seem to realize there is a system fault with this product.
