DPReview TV: Canon Powershot Zoom Review


I think if they made a few tweaks, this could be a really compelling little monocular – weather sealing, closer focus, smaller zoom steps, better battery.

Unlike other commenters here, I really don’t think the image quality matters that much in a device like this. Sure it would be nice if it was a bit better, but I see it more as a way to just get a reasonable snap to help with identification, or to show others in your group who might struggle to aim binoculars (especially if they made playback easier). And the stabilization would help them use it too.

Or just use it as a memory jogger when you get home. If you’re looking to create something for displaying, then this very clearly isn’t aimed at you.

Here’s hoping for a version 2 in a year or two.
