Fly Me to the Moon

F-stop, f/4.0, ISO-160, 35mm focal length 1426, exposure 1/125 sec.

This is the reason why I bought a bridge camera. The built-in 2000 mm focal length gets you right inside the craters on the moon. A DSLR can do this, but the weight and cost of an interchangeable lens was prohibitive for me.

Bridge cameras, also known as superzooms, are a bridge between compact pocket cameras and DSLR’s (digital, single-lens reflex cameras). I’m very satisfied with the results.

  2. […] So I own a bridge (superzoom) camera. In the hierarchy of gear it falls between a compact and DSLR. This particular model is 12.1 megapixels, f/2.8-8 aperture with an equivalent focal length of 28-672mm (2000mm digital magnification).
