Canon Powershot SX30 SX40 IS Zoom Demo
Demo of zoom capability of Canon Powershot SX30 IS. This was taken from my back yard. I did a full zoom from 24mm to the max optical zoom (840mm) which is 35x and then the digital zoom on top of that to reach 140x. Note that this is just a "cheap" point-and-shoot camera! EDIT Added 3/2/2011 - According to Google Earth, the distance between me and the jogger is 2,600 feet, which is about half a mile.
