The Camera app in iOS 4 adds a 5X-digital-zoom slider above the shutter button. The slider is easy to access, but the pictures can get a bit blurry if you zoom in a lot (optical zoom is not available on the iPhone).

The upgrades aren't limited to your still photos, either. When taking videos, you can now tap to focus on your subject--just as you do when taking photos.
