Re: FZ28 'Extended Optical Zoom'

Start in P mode at 18x - I know that works - you can try other modes afterwards.

Hold the joystick button in for a few seconds until you see the horizontal choice bar in the finder. Move the joystick to the right or left until you highlight the 8mpx (10mpx) box, then move down until you highlight 5mpx(?). As you move the highlight down, you'll see a progressively smaller subject area fill the finder as the sensor is cropped.

Tap the shutter lightly to fix the choice.
You'll see that the zoom is now a larger number.

Could one of you kindly provide a 'step-by-step' on how you manage to
do the following:-
Starting at the highest MP, now zoom to x18 and at that point zoom in
further to x32.1 [which in effect is 3MP extended optical zoom].

Thanks again in advance.

Mike
