I'd suggest shooting the same subject at a series of different focal lengths/zoom levels to confirm that the camera is working properly. Start at the widest 25mm/1x focal length and zoom to 5x, 10x, 15x, 20x, and 24x to ensure that the results appear to zoom in accordingly. You could also compare identical shots taken at the same zoom levels between the ZS15 and FZ300 - which should show the same field of view (FOV) or level of magnification.

as we have major rain again this week I'm just not sure when I'll get a chance to actually see these photos that the camera is supposed to be able to take.

An excellent suggestion from Bruce. Bear in mind you can do this indoors. Image quality doesn't matter because you are only interested in the angle of view. Put the ISO up as high as you want. If it's still a bit fuzzy because of hand-shake at the longer focal lengths with a slow indoors shutter speed don't worry; it doesn't matter in this context. Something like this perhaps (roughly 25,50,100,200,400,600mm).

This is still a good exercise to better understand the camera's capabilities, but since she has determined iZoom as the likely reason for the difference in EFL it no longer serves the intended purpose. Which is all good!

Ah, I hadn't registered that. Thanks Bruce. That makes another post I just did moot too as far as Jacqueline is concerned. Never mind, I'll leave it there anyway in case someone might find it useful.
