    Here are two quick zoom samples with the very slim Canon SX720, with the 960 mm 135-effective focal length. You can see on #2, the water tower, that the image quality at full zoom is pretty good, when you pause and step through the frames. These are straight OOC. The atmospheric distortion in these videos should be obvious, especially on the tower, which is approximately 0.85 miles away in a straight line. This camera fits easily in a shirt pocket, and most pants pockets. I found it surprisingly slim.
