Lens System

Average Digital Zoom

At 4 times zoom factor, the Nikon DL has a pretty typical digital zoom compared to most of the other cameras that have been around for more than a year.

We compared this camera to all the other 4x digital zoom cameras and we think the PowerShot SX700 HS (£199.99), and the PowerShot G3 X (£499.97) both from Canon or the Panasonic DMC-LX100 (£497) which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If this camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Sony RX10 III (£1,399) (100x and higher rated).
