SX220/230 HS - Digital Zoom Option Always Greyed Out.
May 1, 2011

Recently got a SX220 HS.

I didn't want to use digital zoom, and so looked in the menus to turn it off - as per page 55 in the manual.

However, the digital zoom option is greyed out (and set to off). No matter what mode I am in I don't seem to be able to activate the digital zoom option in the menus.

I am guessing that some other option effectively disables digital zoom, so whilst that option is used then digital zoom is disabled. But I can't find any reference to it in the manual.

As I say, I wasn't trying to use digital zoom anyway and it seems to be turned off, but now I have looked at the menu options for it, I am intrigued as to why it isn't available.

Any suggestions?
