Re: Does "extra zoom" reduce the effective size of the sensor?

When you use "extra zoom", aren't you just using a smaller central portion of the sensor?

Yes, Rick, but your exposure, white balance, etc, are based on that subset of your sensor. When you just crop the image in PP you get the average exposure, etc, for the entire frame. So there is an advantage letting the camera crop for you.
