Default camera choice

Hello everyone,

I'm currently considering a camera for use on my boat. I like to take pics of fish and other wildlife and landscapes. I like the super zoom style but not the bulkiness of some models. I'm really eyeing the Kodak Z950 or the Canon SX120. Are there any other compact super zooms that I should be considering? Thanks in advance.

rob-

Welcome to the Forum. We're please that you dropped by.

In that price range the Kodak Z-950 and Canon SX-120 represent the best in pocket zooms. And with Amazon dropping the price on the Z-950 to $111.95, that makes the Z-950 much more attractive.

I own the Z-950 and I have been very pleased with the 10X optical zoom, the very good image quality, and the HD video, that allows zooming while filming.

Congratulations, Rob-

I am sure you will enjoy the Kodak Z-950. Its a very good camera. By the way the price dropped $1 late yesterday afternoon (07/24) to $110.95.
