Compact Travel Zoom Digital Cameras
So-called travel zooms are compact digital cameras that offer long zoom ranges. They're especially popular among travelers for their balance of photographic capability and portability, but are well-suited for a variety of shooting situations. These versatile cameras offer zoom ranges of 10x or greater, more manual control than a standard point-and-shoot digital cameras, and often have a deep feature set. For hobbyists that want a versatile, pocket-sized camera with more power than a point-and-shoot, but without the complexity of an interchangeable-lens model.
