Even when everything is in focus, some distances are more in focus than others.

comment Need help with Camera and Lens Choices
Those huge zoom ranges limit you to small sensors. Don't bother looking at DSLR or System (mirrorless) cameras. Not even at high end P&S.

comment Cheapest camera possible to use for “scanning” slides using a projector and a camera
The camera + projector idea is probably a bad one - the camera will see things your eye doesn't and ideally the camera and projector should be at the exact same spot. Do a quick test with a compact or even a phone-cam first.

comment How to shoot a 220 yard photo with an 18-135mm lens
The lens just is not capable of that. What percentage (roughly) of the frame do they fill? That gives you an idea of how much tele you lack.

Improvise. As long as the cam is steady and not in your (trembling) hands.

You should still consult the EXIF (properties) and see what settings were used. Gives you an idea what doesn't work.

comment Confused between 2 “pro” point & shoot cameras
@jdlugosz - this one is often called a point&shoot. It ticks all the boxes.

There are several questions about this on [StackOverflow] if you want the programming details.

I think you should specify the exact model.

Only tripods wear "12x lenses".
