This model has jumped the Q in the superzoom category.24-2000mm equivalent....16mp, F2.8-6.3.Ideal for the one camera person who needs a good length on the.telephoto angle.Only shootsJpegs, but it is a the point and shoot sensor.Not a purists piece of equipment, however will appeal to many surfers,paparazzi and peeping toms!
2000mm? (I see it's an 83x Optical Zoom).
Would there be any real value in using this zoom range for a handheld camera though?
Well theres a good reason to be sceptical with that focal length, however the reviews are pretty complimentary so far..the stabilising is supposed to work quite well..
OK, its been out a little while now....I've tried it out at local cam shop and it impresses me for what it is!
Definitely need a monopod to frame the subject with the zoom fully extended, but the ability to zoom back and pick up the subject at the touch of a button is great.
PLENTY of youtubes on it now......
the official Nikon video zooms in on JAWS , so would be a good cam to get close in at places like Shark Island....or on the end of a long pointbreak
