The digital zooms of digital cameras of this spec and age range from 1x to 120x. With a digital zoom of 5 times zoom factor, the Pentax Efina has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst medium megapixel digital cameras of this age.

We compared this camera to all the other 5x digital zoom cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the 150F, and the SAMSUNG ST96 both from Samsung or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 (£242.99) is also worth considering.

If this Pentax digital camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Kodak Pixpro FZ41 (6x) which also has a higher rating.
