ZS40 - handheld Moon shot at effective focal length of 2800 mm
Mar 14, 2014

I've been doing these moon shots since digital pocket cameras were first available. I believe Panasonic's TZ1 had an equivalent zoom focal length of 350 mm, so this camera is a little more than double that, giving more than 4 times the resolution after cropping. Factoring in other improvements the resolution is probably 10 times that of the advanced (for its time) TZ1. f6.4, 1/250 handheld (braced), ISO 100. The noise isn't good, but given the magnification and small sensor, it's not bad. I hope this image conveys something of the ZS40's limits for shooting JPEGs.
