Panasonic HX-DC3

 

Panasonic's HX-DC3 provides a decent optical zoom and manual settings for a very keen price.

Decent image quality ; Very good price ; Optical zoom

Limited manual settings ; Mediocre in low light

Digital zooms artificially blow up the image to achieve their effect, so reduce resolution, whereas an optical zoom preserves this. You will be able to zoom into the subject without ugly blockiness appearing.
