Lens System

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 6.7 times zoom factor, the Fujifilm JZ100 has a fairly big digital zoom compared to most of the other digital cameras that have been available for a comparable time to this digital camera. The average digital zoom of similar spec cameras that were released more than two years ago is 6.6x, and the digital zooms range from 1x to 120x.

We compared all the other 6.7x digital zoom cameras to this camera and we think the Fujifilm SL300 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this camera digital zoom is not big enough 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.

Average Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 8 times zoom factor, the Fujifilm JZ100 has a relatively average optical zoom compared to most of the other cameras of a comparable age and spec to this camera.

We compared this camera to all the other 8x optical zoom digital cameras and we think the Canon A4000 IS, and the Casio EX-ZR20 which both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

Digital cameras with a bigger optical zoom that might be worth looking at include the Panasonic DMC-SZ9 (10x and higher rated), or the Samsung WB30F (10x and higher rated).
