Panasonic originally invented the travel-zoom category with their TZ1, the first compact camera with a long zoom With a standard 10X optical zoom. In 2006, this was considered a pocket-size ultra-zoom! Real ultra-zooms are now much larger and often sport lenses that reach beyond 1000mm. Many travel-zooms followed, including Canon’s high-successful SX100 which was gradually replaced by a series of digital cameras which pushed the zoom further and diminished features over-time, losing precious manual-control along the way.

At CES 2006 earlier this year, Panasonic returned to the travel-zoom mold by delivering yet another compact camera with a 10X optical zoom and dull manual-controls They also took their new Panasonic ZS100 to the next level with a first-in-class 20 megapixels 1″ CMOS sensor and built-in EVF with Eye-Start Sensor, while simultaneously launching a standard-sensor sibling, the Panasonic ZS60 with an 18 megapixels 1/2.3″ CMOS and a 30X optical zoom lens which pretty much balances out the compromise.

Pansonic Lumx DMC-ZS100 Review

Given its level of efficient controls, including dual control-dials, a traditional mode dial and 4 highly-customizable buttons, plus the image-quality previously seen from recent premium compacts, the Panasonic Lumix ZS100 is truly the first premium travel-zoom. It is a highly versatile camera with a long zoom in a compact body.

Canon EOS Rebel T6s

A detailed review of the Canon EOS Rebel T6s was recently published at Neocamera. This is a unique member of the Rebel family that brings efficient photographic controls into a relatively lightweight design. Dual control-dials, a top status LCD, built-in WiFi and NFC make it quick photograph and share images with the T6s.

The Canon T6s and T6i were introduced together with a new 24 megapixels APS-C CMOS sensor with a Hybrid AF III system which includes 19 all-cross-type Phase-Detect AF-points. The sensor has an ISO 100 to 12800 sensitivity range, expandable to 25600, and is paired with a fast Digic 6 processor, allowing it to shoot at 5 FPS even at full-resolution.

Panasonic launched 3 mirrorless cameras this year (2015), with the entry-level GF7 starting off the year, followed by the prosumer G7 and finally their professional Panasonic GX8 flagship reviewed here last month. The prosumer model is very much aimed at enthusiasts with a very rich feature-set and efficient access to photographic controls, including dual control-dials and a traditional mode-dial. Its ergonomic body offers a deep hand-grip and large 0.5″ EVF with 2.4 megapixels and an Eye-Start sensor.

Neocamera just published an in-depth review of the Panasonic G7.

This new sensor has been revised to record 4K Ultra-HD video and paired with a hybrid shutter mechanism with a top speed of 1/16000s and minimum timed exposures up to 60s, with Buln extending this to 2 minutes.

The Nikon Coolpix P900 is the ultra-zooms champion thanks to a stellar 83X optical zoom which covers a unprecedented 24-2000mm focal-range. This prosumer digital camera is packed with features and controls, to a point that is can easily be confused for an entry-level DSLR, yet there is no lens for such a camera to reach 2000mm!
