So you’re about to buy a new digital camera and the salesman is telling you all these things about numbers, 12 vec zoom, for example. What does that mean? Well, very simple, 12 vecs represents how much magnification the optical zoom provides? So, to put this in perspective, everyone uses their reference of 35 millimeter film, that’s the old 35 millimeter film you used to in a camera and that was a focal length and so 50 millimeter was sort of this the standard picture that came on most cameras. 50 millimeter’s the standard. Wide angle was like a 25 millimeter. So this camera, for example, is a 12 vecs, so it starts at 25 millimeter which is a very wide angle and then it’s 12 vecs, so 12 times 25 is 300, so equivalent to a 300 millimeter lens in the parlens of a 35 millimeter camera. So this is actually a very nice, very wide lens and a very tight lens at the same time. It’s got a lot of power. So, 12 vecs represents the power of the zoom. This is very good. Some of these smaller cameras only have 3 or 4 vecs, so a 12 is better than a 3 or 4, if you wanna get all those tight pictures. Hope this helped. Please go to LivinginHD.com.
