Best ultra-zoom digital camera

Small but mighty, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V camera packs the longest zoom of any compact camera (30x). Serious photographers will appreciate the full manual controls and hot shoe, while beginners will feel at ease with the outstanding auto modes. Most importantly, the 20-megapixel photos and full HD videos look terrific in tests.

Best extreme zoom digital camera

Able to shoot photos from two miles away, the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS's outrageous 50x zoom is one of the longest you can buy. The rest of the camera is just as impressive, experts say. Rich features like full manual controls, RAW file support and a hot shoe come standard, and photos and videos look very good for a mega-zoom.

Best compact ultra-zoom camera

Yes, you really can fit an ultra-zoom in your pocket: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS30 camera crams its 20x zoom lens (plus full manual controls, Wi-Fi, GPS and more) into a body that's slightly more than an inch thick. You won't get a viewfinder, hot shoe or RAW support, though -- that's the trade-off for being able to slip it into your pocket.
