camera optical zoom

No content

Best Buy customers often prefer the following products when searching for camera optical zoom.

When you need to get closer to your subject without physically moving—whether it's a bird in a tree or the stage at a concert—optical zoom is the way to go. It uses the lens itself rather than cropping the image in software, so you don't lose any detail. If you're going to be shooting from a distance, the optical zoom is your best friend.

    Top comment

    "Great Camera...Has a lot of features....most specially the 54X Optical Zoom. Feedback on this camera: - charging needs to be done with the camera - no info on how to order replacement/spare batteries - usb-c cover looks weak - small plastic holds the battery in place - 16 Megapixel max for pictures Other than those above...it does a great job of taking pictures. ...And there should be a way to have the flash on for every interior photo, instead of the auto flash feature. The zoom works well for longer distance shots. The battery can take several hundred shots before running out. "
