Lens System

Quite Big Digital Zoom

The FinePix JX550 has one of the bigger digital zooms (7.2 times zoom factor) amongst medium megapixel digital cameras of this age. Across all the digital cameras of a comparable age and type to this digital camera the digital zooms range from 1x to 120x, and the average digital zoom is 6.6x.

We compared all the other 7.2x digital zoom cameras to this digital camera and we think the Fujifilm AX650, and the Pentax X-5 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a bigger digital zoom then you might want to consider the Sony DSC-W580 (10x) which is also higher rated.

Very Small Optical Zoom

Across all the cameras that were released more than two years ago the optical zooms range from 0.34x to 65x. The FinePix JX550 has one of the smaller optical zooms (only 5 times zoom factor) amongst digital cameras of this age.

We compared all the other 5x optical zoom cameras to this camera and we think the Canon A1300, the Nikon Coolpix S1200 ($200), and the Samsung ST100 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the D5100 + AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (5.8x), or the Coolpix S5200 (6x) both from Nikon which is also higher rated.
