The digital zoom gives even greater flexibility of up to 1,000mm in 35mm terms. There's some degree of image smoothing, but it could be the difference between getting a shot and not being able to.

The Nikon S800c enables you to download a wide variety of Android apps to the camera, such as Instagram. This was shot with the full 10x optical zoom as well, which is a huge advantage the camera has over smartphones.
