Best Optical Super Zoom Cameras Under $400 - Special Deals

The advancement in digital camera technology has been phenomenal in the last few years, but it has been even more incredible in 2013.  Not too long ago 10x optical zoom on a mid range consumer grade camera was considered quite good.

Most camera manufacturers used to combine optical zoom and digital zoom in order to help with their marketing.  So 20x zoom could have been 10x optical x 2x digital = 20x total.  If you are a beginner in photography, keep in mind that digital zoom is no good.  It always involve some level of loss in image quality, usually in proportional amount.

Fast forward to 2013, you can find number of excellent camera with powerful optical zoom lens that we could only dreamed about a year ago at a price that won't leave a big dent in your wallet.

Nikon Coolpix P520 pictured about packs 42x optical zoom with 18.1 MP CMOS sensor, and even 1080P video recording.

Sony HX300 features even more impressive 50x optical zoom with 20 MP image sensor.  The company is also known for industry leading HD video recording on most of their cameras. Unfortunately, this one is slightly over $400 at $418 at the moment.  Watch out for Black Friday Deal on Amazon it many drop below $400.

Fujifilm FinePix HS50 pictured above looks massive but it is still much smaller and lighter than average professional DSLRs from Canon or Nikon that you see photographers chugging along.

FinePix HS50 features Fujinon 42x optical zoom with 2.0x digital zoom making the combined total at 84x.  But our recommendation is to turn off the digital zoom feature unless you really have to use it and a cost of reduced image quality.

Lastly, here is another worthy contender from Canon, PowerShot SX50 HS with 50x optical zoom and 12 MP image sensor.  It features Canon's legendary DIGIC 5 image processor to produce amazing image output.

Here is how you can get the lowest priced deals for these cameras:
