What's a '379'?

If this camera is out in Japan and not yet arrived in the USA, how do you know its zoom noise is like a hair dryer, Fishy?

However, any camera with a zoom much over 3x that hasn't got an EVF will be of no use to me. Oh, the good old Fuji A303 (3x),Kodak CX6440 (4x), Canon A610 (4x) all have OPTICAL viewfinders. But one can't expect an optical viewfinder on a very long zoom and I think it is really penny pinching to omit an electronlc one. Keeps the price down I suppose.

the Price is $379.00. THe Seller is here in the USA a Canon authorized Dealer and I watched a clip on Yt. about three original not commercial copied one/

So I stick with my Sony HX90V with a Electronic view finder

or go find my olypusd40v with optical

Ah, you edited your '379' post then, Fishy. So it's 379 DOLLARS. Right!

So you've heard the SX720HX performing then....Hmmm, no comment, LOL. The longest zoom I can achieve is 450mm equiv. with a FF 300mm lens on my Pentax DSLR, and that really is enough for me. If I want more then I can crop as I find the results suitable for 19-inch monitor viewing and 4x6 prints.

And thanks for putting me straight, Fishy!
