It's pretty cool to see just how far you can zoom in!

Cool...

To answer your question...

Optical zoom x digital zoom = total zoom

12 x 3 = 36

But the bigger question is, what's the 35mm equivalent?

Basically, I took a bunch of pictures of different zoom levels and used Adobe ImageReady to create an animated gif with them. I had to save it as a small image size and reduced (64) colors to fit under the file size limit, but they're not cropped or edited in any other way.

36 x 35mm = 1260mm. Nice work ain't it one heck of a lens. So why are we hooked anyway :-):-)

You also can count this way, the FZ10, FZ15 and FZ20 has 12X optical zoom which is equivalent to 420mm(35mm film zoom)and also 4X digital zoom. So 420(which is 12 times) X 3 = 1260mm. I did a zoom test myself too.

The shots below are all hand held cos I did not bring my tripod along! But I was surprised how well the OIS works! My hands were ok but for the 48X zoom, a slightest move would cause the pic to be so violently shaken, and also I had to use the viewfinder and not the LCD for the 48X zooom.

At 0X zoom.




At 12X zoom.




At 48X zoom. You can actually see the last four digits of the truck's plate. 7213. But there is a slight loss in quality once digital zoom steps in.



Sorry, I have not learn how to use Adobe Image Ready yet.:?

Thanks for viewing.
