Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon IXUS 240 HS Digital Camera with Wi-Fi - Black (16.1 MP, 5x Optical Zoom) 3.2 inch LCD (Electronics)
This is a very clever little camera with lots of useful features but in this day and age a 5x optical zoom (no digital at all) is simply not acceptable. I can't believe I didn't notice this - I will be much more wary next time. Another irritation is that stills cannot be taken from videos. I am already going to have to find another camera- much more carefully.

If you read the manual you have almost 20x digital zoom (24-480 mm) and 24-120 mm optical zoom.

I don't want more than a 5x zoom! It's very hard to make a good zoom that covers a range more than about 3-4x. This is why almost all professional lenses are limited to about 3x zoom. If this camera had a 10x zoom it would noticeably affect the quality throughout the whole range. 5x is a very nice compromise between quality and range.
