I have a digital camera with a 12:1 zeiss zoom lens with an  
electronic image stabilser. It looks like an ordinary camera. No huge  
lens sticking out the front. I think I can get a good image of number  
plates from over 200 metres. I could certainly pick up details on a  
name tag from 30 metres. Not that I've tried. I've got lots of  
pictures of grandchildren, birds, lizards and insects though.
