The Best Superzoom Camera
Updated Dec 10, 2022
If your camera (or smartphone) doesn’t have the reach to capture the subjects you like to shoot—think nesting birds, airplanes, or the moon’s craters—a superzoom might be the solution. We’ve tested dozens of these versatile point-and-shoots over the past decade, and our current favorite is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300. Although its zoom isn’t as long as those of some rivals, it strikes a just-right balance of telephoto capability, user-friendly design, and excellent image quality.
