The Canon PowerShot Zoom has not reached its pocket telephoto potential – here’s why

When Canon announced in September that its one-of-a-kind monocular-style compact camera was going on sale around the world, we were initially thrilled – but unfortunately our Canon PowerShot zoom review found it was not realizing its potential.

The PowerShot Zoom is a tiny camera with an optical zoom from 100 mm to 400 mm, which you can expand to 800 mm with a 2x digital extension. On paper, it’s a promising alternative to the limitations of smartphone zooms, which have improved a lot but are still reaching an upper limit imposed by their form factors.
