“There’s not much you can’t photograph with a lens that extends from 25 to 850mm and there’s certainly very little in terms of competing models that come close to that range.”
Camera Labs has posted their review of the Canon PowerShot SX30 IS, an ultra zoom digital camera with 14.1MP resolution (1/2.3-in. CCD), a whooping 35x ultra wide-angle optical zoom (24-840mm equiv.), optical image stabilization, Zoom Framing Assist, 2.7-in. LCD (230k-dot), PASM modes, Smart AUTO, Scene Modes, Color Accent, and HD movie (1280×720) @ 30fps. Both the optical image stabilizer and optical zoom are available during movie shooting.
