Compact digital cameras with a large zoom range are perfect for those of you who want to focus on the details of faraway subjects. They are perfect for travellers as they won't command as much space in a backpack as a digital SLR, and they can even be used in the backyard to get a close-up of your dog's face as he lounges in the sun, for example. Our top 5 has great ultra-zoom compact cameras from Canon, Panasonic, Nikon, Samsung and Sony.
2 / 5
The GPS-enabled Samsung HZ35W digital camera produces some of the sharpest, highest-quality stills we've seen this side of a DSLR, but its confusing menu system and poor video quality knock it down a peg.
