Sony's H70 is a basic but effective travel zoom with a 25mm-250mm lens (that's 10x zoom), plus all the good stuff like optical image stabilization, 720p HD video, sweep panoramas, a 3-inch LCD, so on and so forth. It's a bit more middle-of-the-road, specs wise, than most of the travel zooms on the market right now, but at a top price of $230, it costs a heck of a lot less than most of them. Image quality is not the strong suit, though it's fine considering the price and specs. A head-turner, it is not, but a decent, affordable point-and-shoot with a long zoom.
