    Product Description

    Minolta's MN67Z Bridge Camera features a long-reaching 67x optical zoom along with versatile recording capabilities in a small and compact body. Its 20.68MP BSI CMOS sensor enables high-resolution stills shooting and 1080P FHD video recording with low noise and sensitivity from ISO 100-3200 as well as SD 640x480p video in high-speed 120 fps. The expansive zoom covers a 23.4-1568mm equivalent focal length range for working with subjects both near and far and is complemented by a 4x digital zoom that sets the combined total at 268x magnification. Optical image stabilization helps minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting, which can be paramount when shooting at extremely long focal lengths. The rear of the camera features an electronic viewfinder (EVF) with adjuatable diopter, 3.0" 920k-dot LCD monitor for easy review and composition of your images that’s fully articulated allowing you to compose selfies and vlogging videos with ease. Built-in Wi-Fi is available for image transfer and the included 16GB SD card ensures your pictures remain safely stored even without a wireless connection.

  7. Tamron - 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Sony E-Mount - Front_Zoom
    Top comment

    "Needed a versatile zoom lens for closer wildlife shots, and this fit the need and budget....I purchased this Lens because I do a lot of wildlife photography that requires distance from some subjects. "

    See all customer reviews

    Product Description

    The 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD (Model A047) for Sony full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras is a telephoto zoom lens designed and created so photographers of all skill levels can enjoy high quality images comfortably. Tamron’s new 70-300mm F4.5-6.3 covers a broad telephoto zoom range yet is the world's smallest size and lightest weight, coming in at 148mm (5.8 in) long with a maximum diameter of 77mm, and weighing just 545g (19.2 oz). With special emphasis on resolving power, Tamron has deployed special lens elements appropriately arranged to correct chromatic aberration, generally very strong in a telephoto lens, as well as other aberrations. Users can enjoy high-resolution images combined with the stunning bokeh qualities that are achievable only with a telephoto lens. The lens also incorporates the RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor unit, a high-speed precision AF drive system that is remarkably quiet. Tamron's Moisture-Resistant Construction provides extra protection, while various features that are built into Sony mirrorless cameras, including "Eye AF," are supported. The 70-300mm F4.5-6.3 is a versatile lens for photographing landscapes, sports and other action, pets and wildlife and more. The lens also demonstrates its potential for portrait shooting, casual snapshots and scenarios that require you to be mobile and shoot handheld, like sporting events. The apparent image compression and the close-up effects characteristic of telephoto lenses naturally amplify photographic expression. Zooming in on distant objects and making them appear closer is one of the joys of telephoto shooting. This zoom lens provides an entryway into that new world.
