This camera has a really long zoom and it is pocket size. Sony has released a great camera. Before this I used my iPhone for taking pictures because I could carry it around. However, the iPhone camera did not produce quality images in low light. Using this camera, I have been able to get long zooms in low light which resulted in great images. This is a great camera.
