Chris at DPReviewTV has completed his review of the Canon PowerShot Zoom, a unique camera (or “device” as Chris calls it). This camera is shaped like a monocular and has 35mm equivalent focal lengths of 100mm or 400mm lens, but nothing in between. You can also go into a digital zoom mode and bring the reach to 800mm.
This looks like a cool gadget to pair with a smartphone or to use as a viewing too instead of binoculars or dedicated monoculars.
There is some good and bad with the PowerShot Zoom, so check out the full review above.

I preordered one. While the IQ was as expected for the price, my issue was that my large hands had a difficult time holding it. It just kept slipping out of them. I never dropped it, but I felt uncomfortable and decided I'd never use it. I sent it back after a week or two.

The tiny sensor did require that the scene be bright to reduce noise. I now have a Galaxy S21 Ultra. I'd say its good at 10X. At 100X, its not much use.
