On article 2017 Buying Guide: Best enthusiast long zoom cameras (30 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dr_Jon: I'd have thought one of the smaller sensor but very long zoom cameras should be here too, I assume they are elsewhere but something like the B700 or P900 is an interesting trade-off. Where are they if not here?

P900 is now almost three years old, it's heavy and big, doesn't have RAW, but its optics and image stabilization are unique. I'm shooting with it from the beginning and I'm still very pleased. Please see a tit shot today, an overcast day, handheld, through my hall window, at the telephoto end (2000mm eq) :

P.S. I think they are referring to the 2017 cameras only.

Nice shot, however I think the pilot (captain) is that behind the phone, that on the right is the copilot.

PredatorsPrey: Again, for the AF Part, just a few picks and not the whole sequence as in a bit older reviews?
DPR was the resource where one could have a look at the images resulting in the rating which might allow someone to build up his/her own opinion as well but it seems as this is not the goal anymore thus people have to rely a bit more on other peoples conclusions. That is not a good move.

+1! Now I decide based on the forum colleague and other user samples, never on the DPR ones :(

They are waiting with the gun barrel in the ground?! During my military service, if someone would have made such a mistake, he'd have to expect a severe punishment!

perry rhodan: I'm glad IQ is dropped from the list of things needed to win "best" of any class. I "tested" the 3 mentioned here extensively for IQ. Because these three lack it completely. And I'm dead serious. Clipping is killing IQ in both panasonic's. The TZ 90 has abyssmal lowlight IQ. Even a 5 year old camera that sold for 100 does better right now. Sorry If you like gadget's. The Clipping of highlights in the FZ 300 is unacceptable. The P900 is a one trick pony. Nothing wrong with that, but if you write "best" I assume you mean best in real world use and not best in the prospectus. Tried all extensively and gladly Let them go. The HX400 trounces them all in IQ. And that is a 3 year old cam doing 370 now. NEXT..!

Absolutely: thus for me "P900 trounces HX400" and that's what counts :)

I don't think so: please see some P900 images by someone who has both P900 and HX400 and thinks viceversa:

In reply to:

photoreddi: Your review had this to say about Canon's SX60:
"What we like : Good image quality"
"Images produced by the SX60 are well-exposed with vibrant color and pleasing sharpness"
Unfortunately, Imaging-Resource's comprehensive "Best Superzoom 2014" review found that the SX60's image quality was soundly thrashed by the older SX50. Showing crops from the SX50 and SX60 it noted :

"Compared to the SX50 this image is really a mess. The same chain we just referred to almost seems to be disintegrating in parts of this image, and virtually all of the wood appears odd and mottled to some degree. There's also less detail in the coins even though we're substantially more zoomed in. And bear in mind that this is the best of three images we shot, and is at base ISO from a tripod with a self-timer."

http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/best-superzoom-2014/best-superzoom-2014-pg3-ultimate-image-quality.HTM

It would have been nice to include Nikon's B700. It's comparable to the P610 but adds RAW.

Although some people tried to convince themselves SX60 being a good camera, it was clearly worse than the very good, old SX50.
And, yes, THAT of Imaging Resource was a professional review, with a lot of images of the same target, not just text, some samples and personal opinions :(

In reply to:

Dodge_Rock: Why not take the time to incorporate some of the forum discussions and link to the threads? Most of these cameras have been out for an extended period and there have been numerous reviews by forum members.

I have the HX400 and P900. P900 is built better and the clear winner in still photography. I rarely shoot video, but the zoom sound on the P900 is annoying. I'd go with HX400 for movies unless extra reach is needed.

+1

In reply to:

tomjar: Is there any area of photography/video gear (except the high-end DSLR segment) in which Nikon still manages to get it right and to actually deliver a competent new product once in a while? Really sad and hard to believe, it seems as if they have lost their compass, what happened to this company??

Yes: the compact small sensor superzoom cameras P600/610, P900 (for the moment without rival) and B700. But as someone wrote, still the software issues, for instance you can't scroll shot images magnified, instead you must revert to the normal size, go to other image, magnified it, etc. I don't think that's a Canon, Olympus and other patent, just indolence to comply to the customer requests.
