Taken at 42x optical and 2x digital zoom, this camera is capable of amazing results, I love it, worth every penny, feels like a DSLR to use but no lens changing and pretty darn good image quality Taken right on the limit of the zoom both optical and digital, have never been able to grab shots like this before
