Works pretty well, can zoom up to x16!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon PowerShot A2500 16MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom with 2.7-Inch LCD (Red) (Electronics)
The camera takes excellent pictures and videos, the price... you can't go wrong. I just wish it came with a cable as well to transfer pictures to my PC, instead of having to remove the SD card. This does not come with a memory card, i bought a "Transcend 16GB Class 10 SDHC Flash Memory Card (TS16GSDHC10E)" together with this and it works well. The camera is very lightweight, and does not look nor feel as though it can withstand any small fall for shock impact, so be careful with it.
Ok an edit to my review: I just tried taking pictures of the moon and venus phenomena (08-09-13) and i realized that this camera zoomed up to 16times! Not just up to x5! After x5 it kept going, x8...x10....x16! I got an awesome pic at x16 of the moon and the planet.

5x is the optical zoom (i.e., the actual zoom). 16x includes "digital zoom" which isn't zoom at all - it just crops the image and blows it up on your screen.

My laptop only transfers photos with a cable which im sure i have already. it does have a spot to plug a cable though?

thanks for the clarification! the cropping feature made the image larger, and actually clearer...whatever the mechanism, it was pretty useful
