I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is no optical zoom on the iPhone camera .. you are simply zooming in on the image using a digital zoom.

When viewing photos using the Camera App .. there is a digital ZOOM which on the iPhone 4 and 4S is 5x magnification

Depending on your model of iPhone the front and back camera have different resolutions so the quality will change between photos taken with front or rear-facing camera.

Is there any way, we can achieve more than 40X zoom.  I don't mind image to be monotone if some visual enhancements need to be used.
