You make it sound as if there's no image quality loss when you use clear zoom. For one, you can't make a raw file from it as far as I know. Not only that, but all it does is crop and then upres the file. You can do that yourself too in PP.

Wrong. This isn't just your run-of-the-mill digital zoom, it accesses a database of thousands of existing patterns that allow it to actually add detail and effectively increase resolution while zooming in.

So it adds detail to my image which comes from a database and not from the subject I shot?

i wonder how much of that database is taken up with different brick patterns, various bookshelves and types of cat?

Pretty much all of it, I'd assume

I mean, where else would you use it?
