Canon's PowerShot Zoom is a new concept for a compact camera. The lens is a telephoto, swapping between 100mm and 400mm optical zoom views. Image quality falls apart quickly in dim light, and while the autofocus holds up at the 100mm setting, it's nearly impossible to get focus to snap in low light at 400mm.

Canon PowerShot Zoom has a 100mm-400mm optical zoom with a 2x digital extension. It's a three-stepped zoom, starting at 100mm. Poor focusing is not only a pain for making pictures, but for clear viewing too. The camera uses a tiny 1/3in sensor and has an ISO 100-3200 range fixed to auto.

Canon's PowerShot Zoom can take photos at 100mm and 400mm, and digital zoom at 800mm. The zoom range is impressive, but there's a general lack of sharpness and definition. The camera also has optical image stabilization, but Canon did not specify to the number of stops.
