Full-size megazoom cameras compared

Want a long lens, lots of features, and a dSLR-like design? You’ve come to the right roundup.

CNET – Call them bridge cameras, longzooms, superzooms, or megazooms (as we do), they’re all pretty much the same thing: a large lens slapped on the front of a point-and-shoot camera.

While that’s a bit of an oversimplification, the fact remains that though these are full-featured models with digital SLR-style bodies, they still have the shooting performance and photo quality of a compact camera. That said, if you’re after a long lens, point-and-shoot simplicity, and an affordable price (at least compared with a dSLR that has comparable lenses), you’ve come to right roundup.

Editors’ note: This post was originally published October 26, 2011, but is updated frequently. It was updated February 4, 2013, to include the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS.
