Up to now there are several bridge cameras have 30x optical zoom – the first one being FinePix HS10 and the second one Olympus SP-800-UZ. The digital zoom of Fujifilm FinePix HS10 is only 2x, whereas Olympus SP-800UZ has 5x.[1] The others are Fujifilm FinePix HS20EXR and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V. Moreover, longer optical zoom right now is 35x by Canon PowerShot SX30 IS.[2] and Nikon Coolpix P500 with 36x.[3]
