I heard about these last week but can't find any info. Can someone direct me? Thanks.
umm there are none that Im aware of, be let me dig. 10-15x zooms are common on consumer level digital cameras, but to get out to that range you would be relying on digtal zoom or cropping down the image. In any case the image quality isnt going to be that great.
if i were to need 800mm of zoom this is the lens i would be using (would have to rent these as these arent in my normal kit)
or (with a 2x teleconvertor)
and both would be on a tripod.
let me check and Ill get back to the thread
Many thank yous.
well found a few in a search on DPreview.com Link
short list of consumer level cameras that reach out to 800mm (according to specs/dpreview)
Canon PowerShot SX40 HS
Olympus SP-810 UZ
Nikon Coolpix P500
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V
Many thank you's!!!! I had no idea how to search for these cameras. The prices are in line with what was mentioned to me. Perhaps I'll have to buy myself a Christmas present, early.
Dpreview.com is one of the best information, news and review sites on the internet when it comes to digital photography. I have used that site and its forums for years. Glad to be of service.
Planning on some intense surveillance???
Most certainly - of the birds on my feeders. However, should I ever need to go to an airport, with such a camera I could stand a distance from a checkpoint and still get good closeup shots without being obvious.
