OK I see why you might think that , but I disagree. I think Canon call it 'Other Shooting Functions' to describe what hasn't already been covered, and they call it digital zoom. In the movies chapter they just called it zoom.
Also they say 'more' closely - as if perhaps you've already zoomed a bit...

You could be right of course - only time (or a bona fide expert) will tell!

Well, all I can say is that I sure hope you're right! A few days ago there was a thread in which somebody was asking the same question about S90. And in reply somebody else cited S90 manual saying that only digital zoom was available. I was not paying attention, because I am more interested in G11, but I would think this feature will be the same in both cameras.

As I said, I hope you're right...
