Impressive indeed, though obviously digital zoom is being applied starting at 0:30 in the video.I compared this video to a moon shot I took with the Lumix FZ70 at 1200mm, cropped to simulate what 2400mm would look like and the result resembles the video up to the 0:30 mark. I'm not arguing with the output, which is nothing less then amazing, just with the fact that it's what you see optically with a 2000mm equiv. lens.-eyalg
Regarding the panorama mode - "It works very well, but the output is limited to 560px in height."
I haven't tested the P310 yet, but I can only guess that like the P300, it can take vertical panoramas as well, so that you can rotate it 90 degrees and take a horizontal panorama while the camera thinks it's vertical.This way you can achieve a much better proportioned and useful panorama.The P300 creates 3200 X 1024 panoramas, so the claim of a maximum of 560px probably isn't accurate.
The (european model) WX100 claims to be the world's thinnest x10 zoom camera.The WX150 is 21.6mm deep, which is *much* thicker than the Canon ELPH 520's 19.2mm and x12 zoom.
As far I could tell from reading Fuji's announcement and details on their website, the F750EXR doesn't support RAW format. Only the F770EXR does.
Like we didn't have enough of the megapixel race,which is still going on in spite of the criticism,now we have a super zoom race, with x36 being the new standard to follow.
