Aside from the ridiculous 52x optical zoom (65x "intelligent" zoom, some kind of optical/digital hybrid), the F40 is a regular ol' standard-def camcorder. This thing doesn't have image stabilization, so you'll need to use a tripod to get a good telescopic shot--the tiniest hand wiggle will turn the 52x shots into a blurry mess. The F40 is the same camera as the F44, without the 16GB built-in flash memory and for $100 cheaper.
