Re: iZoom, FZ200, LX7, FastStone - a few thoughts

I made a mistake on my Flickr site when I called it extra optical zoom, it wasn't, it was izoom. So to clarify that, on the FZ150, the izoom gave inferior results to digital zoom. On the FZ200 I could see no discernable difference between the two, one was as good (or bad) as the other, however if you use digital zoom you still have the problem of the zoom levels skyrocketing into the stratosphere with a very small push of the zoom lever. As a result of that I tended to stick with izoom as its limited to 48x at 12mp, so it can't suddenly jump to something like 58x or 74x at the mere touch of the lever.

All that other stuff is very technical and I for one can't understand any of it. Ha!

I think the important thing here is that if you are happy with the results that izoom gives, and I am, then use it.
