The most of the ultra-zoom cameras under $400 are from Sony with atleast 14 Megapixel camera resolution. And some of the cameras from other brands under this price range are compact and come with best optics and are suitable for standard point and shoot usage.

I've included several samples in the slideshow below so you can see that, while subjects can look good at smaller sizes, once you start to blow things up you lose a lot of detail.

The ordering of some settings is slightly odd though, with key options like ISO sensitivity, metering and white balance relegated to the third page of the camera settings tab.

With such an impressive performance it's a shame the SX710 HS's image noise levels let the side down somewhat.

Panasonic has been at the forefront of the travel compact camera market for some time, and the latest model to sit at the top of the range, the DMC-TZ70 builds on what is already a fantastic reputation.
