A Neat Demo of the 200x Zoom on the Canon SX50


The Canon PowerShot SX50 HS features a 50x optical zoom lens, the equivalent of a 24-1200mm in 35mm terms. Combined with its 4x digital zoom, the camera has a reach of 200x. The video above is a mind-bending demonstration of how powerful a 200x zoom is. It was filmed by YouTuber TheSleeb during a trip through Bilbao, Spain.

Another crazy superzoom out there is the Nikon P900, which can do 83x optically and 332x with digital assistance — that camera can easily see the moon moving across the sky. Here are some other examples of the P900’s zoom powers.
