SX50 Moon with 2X digital zoom
7 months ago

I found that using the digital zoom increases the image resolution compared to just using the maximum optical zoom.

Here are two images taken two days ago; the first with max optical zoom and the second with max optical zoom plus 2.0X digital zoom. The increased detail is noticeable better than any SX50 images of the Moon that I've taken with just the optical zoom. Both images are cropped, resampled to the same size with similar post processing (sharpening was not used).
