SLR-like ‘super zoom’ cameras. Latest Reviews Popular Reviews. On a more positive note, though it lacks a certain amount of finesse, the Z includes features we’ve never found on this class of bridge camera before – including not one but two shutter release buttons, so the camera can more easily be used in either landscape or portrait fashion; like a semi pro DSLR in that respect, the second shutter release being located near the base of the grip.
