Is your current camera zoom making you feel inadequate? Can’t quite zoom close enough for the action? Chinavasion can help with this Digital Video Camcorder with Optical Telescope Lens. The camera is a 30fps digicam that shoots in MPEG4 and stores it on SD card. It can also shoot 12 megapixel stills, has a built in flash and a 3″ TFT flip-out screen. The camera doesn’t have a native optical zoom but it does have a 4x digital zoom and a macro focus mode. Bolting on the telescope provides 8x optical zoom. Pretty darn cheap too, ~US$97.
This DV cameras best feature is the screw-on optical telescope zoom lens, allowing you to take pictures of long distance objects. The zoom lens also has a manual focus adjustment, giving you ultimate control over the focus and quality of your distant shots. When combined with the camera’s native 4x digital zoom, you then have a monster of a zoom camcorder!
