11x bigger optical zoom Edit

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

6 Reasons For
2x bigger digital zoom Edit

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.

Slightly shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ251 has a minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 24mm, however the Fujifilm FinePix S8600 is a 25mm minimum focal length digital camera (1mm longer).
