According to the spec it is an Image Stabilised lens so should be fairly good. It is also optical zoom (not digital), so no loss of image quality. That being said, at this sort of zoom range I'd recommend a tripod or balancing on a stable surface when using full 45x zoom

I haven't even touch the drink yet and image come out blurry
720p video? A bit outdated.
Make sure it's optical zoom. It's way better than digital or a combination of both. i have an old Nikon coolpix 510 and the 42x optical zoom delivers awesome performance for the price. Moon pictures are great too.

It's a bridge camera, designed for stills, video is just an extra.

what would have been better?
Did not think people still buy these cheap stand alone cameras any more with how good cameras have got on decent smart phones.

I get why people buy expensive cameras for doing photo shoots/weddings/hobby etc but those really do produce a noticeably much better picture than a smart phone but this? landfill item in my book.

agree 100%, since mobile phones got 45x zoom cameras these things have become obsolete

Notice how poor general travel photographs have become since smartphones became the prevalent camera. I use a Nikon P520 bridge and it can take very sharp wildlife photos in not great light with the full x42 zoom. You are not going to get that with a phone.

I think the x60 - x83 bridge cameras can also shoot sharply at the extreme end which is a phenomenal feature on a moderately priced (and easily portable) camera.

I don't think this camera is that great though, you probably want to go up a level to get a decent bridge camera

I have the sx540hs and the quality of picture compared to any smartphone is massive. The (optical) zoom and stabilisation magic makes all of the difference here.

i think for clarity you need to make sure people know that you mean when zoomed in
at widest angle the phone will be better in many cases

point of these cameras isn't the absolute quality, its the range of photos that the phone just couldn't attempt

No, the camera out does phone cameras everytime. It's completely superior except for the fact it cannot just be put into my pocket.

What has gone wrong with your digital camera photos? They don't even look in focus. The pixel 2 looks like quite a bit of digital manipulation has gone on, which you may/may not actually want.

I would really think a camera with a proper (ie big) lens should really take better pictures generally, assuming it is a good camera.

1, they are not my photos
2, they are at pixel level (largest resized to match smallest)
3, every photo is digitally manipulated - its the end image that counts and its clearly much better

Cameras on modern phones (from mid range up) are excellent when the light is with you. They also offer decent intuitive picture processing options. And ofcourse are almost always with you.

But when the light is against you or lacking there's no substitute for a large lens to capture as much light as possible. Moreover, when you can't move closer to the subject a decent stabilised optical zoom will give much more flexibility in framing the shot.

So yes bridge/pocket cameras still have a place. Albeit a far smaller place thanks to improvements in phone cameras.
No external mic socket again. Sure most people will never need to use one but just seems like such a basic feature not to include.

Yes, I agree with you, much better explanation than what I said.
The video I saw, the bloke said the image sensor is not much bigger than what you find in a smart phone, it is just the lens that makes the difference because of the zoom and thats it, same as what you said really. So he tried out zoom lenses for phones and the results were not so good.

But it is not. The only real difference is this has a zoom. I bet a decent smart phone could take a better quality no zoom picture than this massive contraption. lol
After purchasing a canon camera a few years ago all I get is an error code won’t let me do nothing complete waste of money it costs a few hundred to send onto the main company which is miles away

Stop pretending to know better. Phones are not dedicated camera's, period. A camera that is made to be a camera only is. Clearly not the best camera Canon makes, but they definitely don't make landfill ones. Optical will always out do digital.

when people use that phrase generally its because there is some element of truth
in your case you just posted utter nonsense so doesn't qualify, it was just annoying
