Lens System

Quite Big Optical Zoom

The smallest optical zoom of similar spec cameras that have been on the market for more than two years is 0.34x and the biggest is 65x. With an optical zoom of 30 times zoom factor, the FinePix S4800 has one of the bigger optical zooms amongst medium megapixel cameras of this age.

There are a number of other 30x optical zoom digital cameras currently available that you might want to look at including the Canon SX500 IS which has better reviews.

Cameras with a bigger optical zoom that might be worth looking at include the Fujifilm FinePix S8600 (£132.99) (36x).

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

The average digital zoom of comparable spec digital cameras that came out around the same time as this camera is 6.6x. With a digital zoom of 7.2 times zoom factor, the Fujifilm FinePix S4800 has a fairly big digital zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel cameras that are a comparable age to this camera.

If this camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the Olympus PEN E-PL7 (£429) (14x) which also has a higher rating.

Display

Similar spec cameras that have been available for around the same time as this camera have display diagonals of between 2" and 4.8", and the average display diagonal is 2.9".

We compared all the other 3" screen digital cameras to this digital camera and we think because of their better review scores, the Fujifilm F800EXR, and the Sony NEX-6Y (£934.39) are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the Df (£2,039) (3.2" and higher rated), the D4 (£4,225) (3.2" and higher rated), or the D4S (£3,379.99) (3.2" and higher rated) all from Nikon.
