    Bought this camera for the 40x zoom and was not disappointed. Been watching a Bald Eagle family and the camera lets me get in close and really watch the eaglets grow. Will be nice to have on upcoming travels too.

    This camera was very easy to use, and had a very good zoom. It takes double "AA" batteries, so you don't have to worry about recharging.

    Zoom on this camera is great. I take pictures of real estate and have been able to get clear property details from a distance. I am a definite fan of this camera.

    This camera has some major zoom and good quality for that purpose. Not so good for the close up. For now, I will stick to my camera phone until I can afford a true dslr.

    I bought this camera for my property inspection business. It has proven useful with ample storage, picture quality, and amazing zoom capability. I barely have to get out a ladder to do a thorough roof inspection because the zoom is tight and surprisingly clear from most any angled roof.

    i moved up from my beginner nikon to this camera, took it on safari in south africa, pictures are beautiful,zoom worked great, got some videos...only drawback was the video button is right where I place my index finger, so I occassionally did videos when I was trying to take a still, but it worked out fine...did recommend it to my hubby's business partner for their trip to italy
