what is a superzoom camera
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
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
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,, etc.

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