Average Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 5 times zoom factor, the Canon Powershot S200 has a relatively average optical zoom compared to most of the other cameras that have been available for around the same time as this digital camera.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 5x optical zoom cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the PowerShot S200 IS, and the S110 both from Canon or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77 is also worth considering.

Digital cameras with a bigger optical zoom that might be worth considering include the Lumix DMC-FZ330 (24x), or the Lumix DMC-FZ200 ($493.16) (24x) both from Panasonic or the Canon PowerShot SX510 ($180.97) (30x) which also has a higher rating.
