Average Optical Zoom

At 3 times zoom factor, the PowerShot SD630 has a pretty average optical zoom compared to most of the other low megapixel digital cameras that have been available for more than a year.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3x optical zoom digital cameras currently available including because of their better review scores, the PowerShot SD1100 IS, or the IXUS 30 both from Canon or the Nikon 1 J1.

If this Canon digital camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 (30x) which also has a higher rating.
