At 8 times zoom factor, the Canon IXUS 132 has a relatively standard optical zoom compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that were released around the same time as the IXUS 132.

We compared all the other 8x optical zoom cameras to this digital camera and we think the Canon PowerShot N[plb_1478196_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might also want to consider the DSC-QX10[pl_2136113_price] (10x and higher rated), or the DSC-WX220[pl_2165839_price] (10x and higher rated) both from Sony or the Nikon Coolpix S6800[plb_2118627_price] (12x and higher rated).

Average Screen Size

At 2.7 inches, the IXUS 132 has a relatively standard screen size compared to most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that came out more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 2.7" screen cameras to this camera and we think the Sony DSC-WX200[plb_1609944_price] which has better reviews; or the Nikon Coolpix S02[plb_2006649_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

If this digital camera screen size is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Fujifilm X100[plb_2173855_price] (2.8"), the Nikon Coolpix S6800[plb_2118627_price] (3"), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ55[plb_2145740_price] (3") which also has a higher rating.

Cameras with a heavier weight that might also be worth looking at include the Nikon Coolpix S02[plb_2006649_price] (100g and cheaper).
