Lens System

Very Small Optical Zoom

Cameras of a comparable age and spec to this digital camera have optical zooms of between 1x and 50x. At only 3 times zoom factor, the Samsung L210 has a fairly small optical zoom compared to most of the other cameras of a similar age and type to this digital camera.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3x optical zoom cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Canon EOS 1D MarkIII (£149.99).

If this Samsung camera optical zoom is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Samsung ZZBPWFR (3.3x) which is also higher rated.
