Super Zooms recommendation plse
May 7, 2011

Traveling soon to some faraway and nice places but am reluctant to lug my Nikon D700 with attendant big lenses and speedlights. Most of the time when traveling this stuff makes you a pain in the posterior to yourself and everyone around you.
I have Canon S90 which I love and my traveling companion has a Panasonic ZC5.

For those long opportunistic shots, birds and wildlife, the other side of the street, detail in a face etc, what is worth while considering among the 15 plus zoom jobs with some chance of a modestly sharp result. 2 quality P&S cameras is a lot easier than a backpack of wonderful! gear. (My wife won't surrender her ZC5 very easily).

By the way age has left with a slight hand tremor. I have a monopod walking stick with 1/4 thread which works a treat.
