Top 5 mega-zoom digital cameras

Five small cameras that let you get up close and personal

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.

Don't call Sony's GPS-enabled, feature-loaded DSC-HX5V a gimmick camera. It supplements its in-camera goodies with great image quality and terrific shooting modes.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
