Lens System

Average Digital Zoom

At 4 times zoom factor, the Vivitar Vivicam S529 has a pretty average digital zoom compared to most of the other cameras of this type and age.

We compared this camera to all the other 4x digital zoom cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon L120 is also worth considering.

If this digital camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the WB350F (5x and higher rated), or the WB250 (5x and higher rated) both from Samsung.

Average Optical Zoom

The Vivicam S529 has a pretty standard optical zoom (5 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other similar spec cameras that are a comparable age to this digital camera.

If you are looking for a digital camera with a bigger optical zoom 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 S5300 (8x) both from Nikon which also has a higher rating.
