The 24-1560 mm 65x optical zoom can reach out and pull in distant objects.
It produces both JPEG and RAW files from the large 20-megapixel sensor.
An articulating view screen and electronic viewfinder give you the best of the SLR and snapshot worlds.
The plastic body doesn't feel substantial.
The swiveling screen is low resolution and pale, and the electronic viewfinder is narrow and subject to iridescence, so it isn't fun to use.
The menu system is tedious, and the camera is lacking an external flash shoe.
The Kodak PixPro AZ651 gives you an incredible 65x optical zoom with face detection and image stabilization. The lens is slow, especially at the long end with f/6.5 at telephoto and f2.9 wide-angle. The ISO range is 100-3200, but it’s not really usable much beyond ISO 200. This bridge camera has a slow startup, a poor viewfinder, substandard image quality, and a short battery life. The swivel viewfinder is low resolution, and the eye-level viewfinder doesn’t fare much better. On the bright side is built-in Wi-Fi and an excellent Wi-Fi app.
