    Pentax XG-1 52x lens; looks pretty good...

    Pentax XG-1 zooms in on the action with 52x lens

    Looks like an impressive bit of kit for 250 British Pounds.

    Ricoh has announced the launch of the Pentax XG-1, a bridge camera with a 52x optical zoom lens.
    It also features a 16 million pixel back-illuminated 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor, and finds inspiration for its appearance from the Pentax range of DSLR cameras.
    The 52x optical zoom gives a 35mm equivalent focal range of 24-1248mm, which should get you very close to the action. There's also a digital zoom available of 4x, which boosts that reach up to 208x. At its widest point, the lens has a maximum aperture of f/2.8, rising to f/5.6 at the furthest reach of the lens.

    A macro mode allows you to get as close as 1cm away from the subject, while continuous shooting of 9fps is offered for sports and other fast moving subjects. A super high speed continuous shooting mode with a maximum speed of approximately 60 images per second is also available

    Full HD video recording is possible and there's a choice of digital filters, such as black and white. A range of shooting modes, including Program, Face Beautifier and Scene Mode are available.
