At 4 times zoom factor, the Canon 145 has a fairly average digital zoom compared to most of the other digital cameras of this type and age.

We compared this camera to all the other 4x digital zoom digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon L31, and the Panasonic DMC-FT2 is also worth considering.

Cameras with a bigger digital zoom that might also be worth considering include the Olympus PEN E-PL7 (14x) which also has a higher rating.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2.7" screen digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the GE X5.
