there's only been no new versions in the last 3.5 years since that camera came out.
Few people buy cameras now, thru are a niche product.
I only use my phone's camera when I have no choice.
Another Thread put me in mind of asking if anyone has any experience with these cameras.
I have a Fuji Finepix HS50 which has a x42 zoom and manual control of the zoom. Generally I am very pleased with it but it is 4 years old and the plastic covering is starting to get sticky and grubby so I have been wondering is there anything better on the market.I have no interest in cameras with interchangeable lenses - they are too inconvenient and too expensive.
however it has electric zoom control and no manufacturer seems to be making a camera with manual zoom.
If anyone has experience of the Canon or any other camera that I should consider I would like to hear from you.
Imagine that the camera is switched off and it and the lenses are sitting on a table.How long does it take to attach the correct lens and take a picture? Less than 20 seconds?
How much is a 1000mm lens for a DSLR?How much is a 24mm lens?
How much is a 24-1000mm zoom lens?
You should be considering the D3000 and D5000 ranges, including second hand - If you can get past your prejudices,
No-one who owns a DSLR would buy a 42x zoom lens, regardless of cost.
I know.I don't own a DSLR - but @msssltd was trying to persuade me to....R
