What is a superzoom camera l.jpg

What is a SuperZoom Camera?

  • A camera with greater than three times (3x) optical zoom lens. (Usually it is greater than or equal to 10x).

  • Usually the image sensor will be greater than six megapixels. (Allows for capture of more detail in photos.)

  • Great for nature shots, sports, or any other situation where you can’t physically get close to your desired subject.


Does that mean expensive l.jpg

Does That Mean EXPENSIVE?

  • Not necessarily. Prices start at $225 and go up from there depending on features.

  • Memory card prices have been dropping and capacities continue to rise, so image storage is no longer a problem.

  • Don’t you need an expensive color printer to print out your photos? NO!


Printing viewing options l.jpg

Printing/Viewing Options

  • Most stores no whave digital printing options right in the store.

  • Good color home printers are now fairly inexpensive (Depends on picture size).

  • Photo paper continues to be expensive.

  • Investigate picture sharing options such as Shutterfly.com, Fotki.com, etc.

    Bottom line: Sharing photos with on-line griends and relatives is not expensive.

Recommendations l.jpg

Recommendations

  • You may want to check out some of these models further if you are interested in high zoom capability.

  • Also check out some photo sharing options. I recommend that you use one of these sites to display snapshots and then only print out 8 x 10’s or other large sizes of the best images.

  • Might want to check out Fuji’s S8000fd available next month. (18 x zoom under $400).


For more information l.jpg

  • Use any web search engine, enter “digital super-zoom cameras, and browse through the results.

  • Next check out the reviews on any camera that seems promising.

  • Go to a store (WalMart, Ritz Camera, Circuit City, Best Buy, etc.) to get some experience with size, accessibility of features, etc. Then BUY the one you want.
