List Price: $179.00 Deal Price: $89.99 You Save: $89.01 (50%)Special guest deal presented by our colleagues at "All zooms are not created equal. This Panasonic 14MP digital camera's 8x optical zoom is real zoom, where the lens optically captures more detail in the photo. Digital zoom is like that magical ENHANCE button you've seen on TV, except that since we don't live in a cop show, it doesn't show anything new. It's just a bigger picture of the same visual information. That's why digital-zoom photos turn out blurry where optical-zoom photos are clear. And that's why professional cameras don't have digital zoom. It's a marketing concept, not a photographic one. This camera boasts a big 14 megapixels of resolution, but that's no reason to waste a single pixel. So Panasonic gave it 8x optical zoom where most consumer digital cameras max out at 4x. There's always digital zoom, of course… but don't believe everything you see on TV."Expires May 22, 2011
