ZOOM

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

We wanted to fo­cus, quite lit­er­ally, on the zoom ca­pa­bil­i­ties of this cam­era. It ac­tu­ally has a 30X op­ti­cal zoom which is re­ally good. The pic­tures shot in this range were clear with­out any noise. Be­yond 30x the zoom is dig­i­tal and this is where you need re­ally steady hands to han­dle this cam­era. We sug­gest you use the tri­pod when you go to 200x, which is the equiv­a­lent of a 500mm lens. Even the wind can set you off tar­get at this range and you would have to zoom out and see what you were shoot­ing. At full zoom, the qual­ity is not that great, con­sid­er­ing the cam­era is just blow­ing up the 30x im­age to fo­cus on a cer­tain part. But step back a bit, to about 140x and the pic­tures will be pass­able.
