What is Ultrazoom?

Ultrazooms are cameras with a large zoom range and a display instead of an optical viewfinder, which displays the image exactly as it will appear on the resulting photograph.

Continue

Their main advantage is the ability to enlarge even the most distant objects, not unlike a telescope. Ultrazooms are suitable if you want to shoot very distant objects, like deer in a field or a village from the mountain top.

 

Ultrazoom digital cameras belong in the category of compact cameras. A compact camera with ultrazoom is characterised by better optical zoom (10x or more) for a larger zoom range, allowing you to zoom in on distant objects such as animals in the wild. As a result, these cameras are called ultrazooms. This description can be applied to electronic cameras as well.

Popular ultrazooms

Ultrazooms are designed for non-demanding photographers, who are mainly interested in the quality of final images. Compared with digital SLRs, ultrazooms have lower weight and smaller dimensions. Beginners will appreciate their ease of use. The ergonomic body of an ultrazoom fits neatly in the hand, making it comfortable to hold. Ultrazooms have the ability to shoot Full HD video.

Ultrazooms by manufacturer and sensor type

Choose from the high-quality Canon, Nikon, or Panasonic ultrazooms. You will also need to decide whether you want your digital camera to have a CMOS/MOS or CCD sensor. Whatever your choice, you can be sure that the cameras in our catalogue are of the highest quality.
