Re: Canon Rebel T3i 3x-10x digital zoom, is it really continuous?

Can someone from dpreview clarify how the 3x-10x zoom actually works? Is it truly a continuous zoom like the review implies? If so then how does it do a lossless 1080p 10x zoom from only 18 megapixels? Also what button or toggle do you use to vary the zoom?

"When filming Full HD footage with the EOS 600D, Movie Digital Zoom can be used to magnify the centre of the sensor by 3-10x while maintaining Full HD quality. "
