Fairly Big Digital Zoom

Digital cameras of a comparable type and age to this camera have digital zooms of between 1x and 120x, and the average digital zoom is 6.6x. With a digital zoom of 5 times zoom factor, the Samsung DV180F has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst medium megapixel digital cameras of this age.

We compared all the other 5x digital zoom digital cameras to this camera and we think the WB800F, and the 77 both from Samsung or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a bigger digital zoom then you might want to look at the Kodak Pixpro FZ41 ($249.99) (6x) which also has a higher rating.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 5x optical zoom cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Vivitar Vivicam S529, the Canon ELPH 320 HS, or the Panasonic DMC-XS3EG.

If you would prefer a bigger optical zoom then you might also want to consider the Nikon Coolpix S5200 (6x), or the Olympus Stylus SH-2 ($341.98) (24x) which also has a higher rating.
