With a 24-720mm equivalent zoom and built-in electronic finder housed in a pocket-friendly body, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50 occupies what manufacturers call the “travel zoom” compact category. At first sight these models look promising, but the small body and large zoom range mean they house relatively small-sized image sensors that may compromise image quality. Read on to find out how well the sensor in this model performs.
Announced in late 2014, the SX60 HS features a physically small 1/2/3”-type 16-Mpix CMOS sensor behind an incredible 65x optical zoom — the equivalent of 21-1,365mm — which is both stabilized and equipped with a sonic-type motor that promises near-silent, high-speed AF. Read on to find out how well the sensor of this intriguing model performs.
With reports in the media of camera manufacturers scaling back on digital compacts due to the rise in popularity of camera-phones and mobile photography, we were curious to see if the Nokia 1020 could offer comparable performance. Read on to find out how this model fares against a range of digital cameras.
Intended for travel photography or everyday use, the 16-Mpix Panasonic DMC-FZ70 features a optical stabilized lens with an astonishing 60x zoom range. Read on to find out how this compact ‘super-zoom’ model performs.
I have used bridge or super zooms cameras with satisfying results for travel, wildlife and dinghy racing for many years using: Panasonic Z5, Nikon 8800, Z18, Z38 and now Canon SX50. Canon SX50 is good given small sensor but been also very pleased with Panasonics, so reckon little to choose between them. Add my Nikon 1.7 ED TC to the SX50 and I get a surprising usable 2040mm: giving higher subject clarity than a 5d mkII and a Sigma 150-500mm! Yet to test against my new Sony A7R with Sigma 150-500mm, or even an ancient Tamron 500SP mirror (+2x SP).
