Across all the medium megapixel cameras that were released more than two years ago the optical zooms range from 0.34x to 65x. When compared to other cameras of this age and spec that we have checked, the optical zoom of the easypix W1400 of only 1 times zoom factor is one of the smallest.
We compared this digital camera to all the other 1x optical zoom digital cameras and we think because of its better review score, the Vivitar VF128 (£34.99) is also worth considering.
If you want a bigger optical zoom then you might want to consider the Polaroid IS426 (£35.99) (4x) which also has a higher rating.
