The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Vastly longer maximum focal length Edit
The Ricoh WG-30 is a 140mmmm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 139mm longer than the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS (140mmmm).
