Canon Powershot SX30 IS
If you thought the 30x optical zoom (28-840mm) of the Olympus SP-800UZ was excessive, then the 35x optical zoom (35 mm equivalent: 24 – 840 mm) of the Canon Powershot SX30 IS goes even further. Announced today it features a 35x ultra wide-angle zoom lens, Optical Image Stabilizer (4.5-stop), USM, VCM, 14.1 MP CCD sensor, 2.7″ vari-angle LCD, EVF, HD movies, HDMI, Smart Auto, Manual modes, Low Light and Miniature Effect movie, Zoom Framing Assist, Servo AF/AE, Extensive accessory system.

“PowerShot SX30 IS showcases Canon optical expertise with an ultra-wide 35x optical zoom. A 4.5-stop optical Image Stabilizer and Zoom Framing Assist make high zoom stills and HD movie shooting a breeze. High quality HD movies (720p) are recorded in stereo sound with Dynamic optical Image Stabilizer for steadier pictures even when moving. The lens’ Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) ensures accurate and silent zooming while Smart Auto optimises movie results from 21 different scenes.”

    I am the owner of a (permanently) coonked out FZ 20 that stopped working over a year ago. Since then I have been “making do” with a couple of nice but optically anemic Powershot Pocket point and shoots. But all this time I have been waiting for a new cohort of Zoom/Ultrazooms to arrive that don’t make you sacrifice picture quality (low-light noise-associated, etc) quality inherent in these types of products to date.

    With rapid-fire announcements/introductions from Canon (SX30), Panasonic (FZ40/100 ), Olymppus and one or two others I probably missed, are you planning to do a solid comparo of these babies now that the flood gates have opened? If not, can you reconnsider as I think there must be a lot of folks like me out there. These manaufacturers seem to think so too, as they have now thrown a ton of money at this market segment.
