How far can the camera zoom?
When I zoom in the picture usually get blurred. I was wondering how far I can zoom in and get good quality if the picture.
This camera has a zoom range that goes from wide angle to quite extreme tele, the latter being the equivalent of the bazooka-type tele lenses you might see on professional cameras at sporting events.
The biggest issue with extreme tele range is blur due to camera shake. In good conditions, i.e. daylight, this should not be a problem, since the camera does have image stabilization. In low light however, shutter speed might get low enough that the stabilization might be insufficient to avoid visible blur due to camera shake. Also, the camera will tend to boost the ISO in low light, this degrades image quality a bit, and the ISO boost is more pronounced at the long end of the zoom.
