You could try the case with the built in zoom lens, or go here and buy their add on iPhone lens. I know adding a lens to an iPhone sounds ridiculous, but I got it, and for $20 it's pretty amazing. Double lens with wide angle and macro.

A digital "zoom" is nothing more than an in-camera crop. You have more options (framing the shot, sharpening, etc.) if you take a normal picture, then crop it afterward. In fact, sometimes the digital zoom will produce a file that's just as big dimensions-wise as a normal shot, and correspondingly larger file size, which is a waste of storage space!

Yeah, all digital zooms do is essentially stretch the image and make it worse quality. You're not gaining anymore information by doing it, just increasing what's available. Unfortunately I don't have any recommendations for ya, as I don't really care for 'em. But good luck! Hope you find one you like.

Ok, so for $.99 it was worth the experiment of a program claiming to do digital zoom. I got CameraZoom, and these are the results. Maybe not the greatest subject for the experiment, but what the heck. It was 3' away and I didn't have to move to try it.

I downloaded camera zoom & you are right it's not that bad but it's not great either. The closer you zoom in the worse the image gets. Like other people have posted here it crops. Then again it's $.99!!! I do wish Apple would add some sort of zoom or more camera functions in their app.
