overview Zoom

Zoom Zoom
4x

Optical zoom refers to the range between how far the lens can zoom out and in. A large zoom range means the camera can take a variety of shots including closeups of distant subjects.

Comparing zoom values is a little tricky, if you take a picture of a subject at 6x zoom, the subject will be four times bigger than if you had taken it at 3x zoom, not two times as it sounds.
