Default Just for silliness : FZ200 zoom power

from my Vegas hol, i tried out the full-on zoom levels of the camera. the full digi end of the daft zoom level starts compromising quality etc but it's just a bit of fun.
here's a shot down the Strip :


here's a link to a full-size one from Monument Valley, cos it'll be too big to post for the forum page :

and from Red Rock, here's a climber ;


and just for fun, see if you can spot him on the wide pic :

That's pretty impressive! Are these simply cropped or did you enhance with PP? And yes, I found the climber, after a few minutes!

all straight out the camera. the zooms are the actual pics, cropped only to fit a screen-friendly size.

Amazing zoom pics; really like how you showed where the zoom came from; how do you do that?

You could do the same thing with Elements for a bit less money.
