As I said above, "So iZoom on the FZ200 looks pretty good to me and I shall use it, with caveats, and I think that the fact that birders are using it is highly significant."

I see that using the iZoom feature allows using the FZ200's highest resolution for a given aspect ratio -as opposed to the EZ zoom

Hi Dave, firstly, I am only talking here about JPEGs, I do not know about RAW.

I also am shooting solely JPEG'S

With Size set to 12mp, iZoom creates these file sizes:  4:3 12mp, 3:2 10.69mp, 16:9 8.99mp.

I see -- using iZoom (or not) in this case -- setting picture size to 12mp under the 4:3 aspect ratio setting gives me high res  and if i wanted to use 3:2 aspect ratio I'd have roughly 10.5mp as the highest, and etc... In other words using iZoom or not -- the aspect and size is always set in the regular menu or in the quick menu. I thought maybe there was a special setting or other gizmo associated with iZoom for picture size/aspect ratio...

Kudos for keeping these 'tech' threads going!

Thanks Mike
