Lens System

Very Small Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of medium megapixel cameras that came out more than two years ago range from 1x to 120x. With a digital zoom of only 2 times zoom factor, the Fujifilm T500 has one of the smaller digital zooms amongst similar spec digital cameras of this age.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 2x digital zoom digital cameras currently available including the FinePix Z1000EXR, the FinePix F750EXR, or the HS30 all from Fujifilm which all of have better reviews.

Cameras with a bigger digital zoom that might be worth looking at include the DMC-GX7 + G VARIO 14-42mm (4x and higher rated), or the Lumix DMC-G6 (4x and higher rated) both from Panasonic or the Canon A2300 (4x and higher rated).

Average Optical Zoom

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 12x optical zoom cameras currently available including because of its better review score, the Canon SX150 IS.

If you would prefer a camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might want to consider the HP P550 (12.5x and higher rated), the Olympus VR-370 (12.5x and higher rated), or the Casio EX-ZR300 (12.5x and higher rated).
