The Fujifilm AX500 has a fairly big digital zoom (6.7 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other similar spec cameras that have been available for around the same time as this digital camera. The digital zooms of comparable spec cameras that have been available for a similar time to this camera range from 1x to 120x, and the average digital zoom is 6.6x.
We compared this digital camera to all the other 6.7x digital zoom digital cameras and we think the Fujifilm SL300 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If this camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to consider the FinePix S4800 (7.2x and higher rated), the FinePix JX660 (7.2x and higher rated), or the T400 (7.2x and higher rated) all from Fujifilm.
