Digital Zoom
The amount of digital zoom refers to how many time the camera will zoom in on an object digitally. This generally involves digitally cropping an image while keeping the same aspect ratio.

When looking for a quality zoom camera, it is better to look for a great optical zoom than a digital zoom. A optical zoom maintains the detail of the zoomed image, whereas the digital zoom can lower the quality if zoomed in to much.
