The digital zooms of camcorders of this age and type range from 1.5x to 3,500x. When compared to other video cameras of this spec and age that we have assessed, the digital zoom of the Sharp HC-V130 of 2,500 times zoom factor is one of the biggest.
There are a number of alternative 2,500x (digital) camcorders currently available which you might want to consider including the Panasonic HC-V500 which has better reviews.
If this video camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Panasonic HC-V270EB (£179.99) (3,000x).
