Hey! You should know that this product has been discontinued. Here are our current recommended cameras in the Extended Zoom Digital Cameras category.
Fujifilm FinePix S4000
Fujifilm's S4000 crams a huge 30x zoom lens into a $279 package. Judging from the popularity of past S-series models, this huge zoom, low-cost combo is popular with consumers even if it doesn't always produce great results. Based on our past experience with the S-series, we're betting that users will find some gripes with image quality and performance, though the S4000 does come in a larger, redesigned chassis. Still, for some folks, it'll be tough to argue with such an enormous zoom range for that price.
