With a digital zoom of 4 times zoom factor, the Canon IXUS 265 HS has a fairly standard digital zoom compared to most of the other digital cameras of a similar age and type to this camera.

We compared all the other 4x digital zoom cameras to this digital camera and we think because of their better review scores, the Nikon L120, the Olympus SH-21, and the Panasonic DMC-FS40 are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a digital camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to consider the WB350F (5x and higher rated), the WB250 (5x and higher rated), or the DV180F (5x and higher rated) all from Samsung.
