How do you think they get that extra zoom if not by taking out the central portion? I do not believe that pixels are added to the image.

For EZ zoom you are correct!  Pixels are subtracted using EZ.  The only zoom that there isn't anything thrown away is at full zoom for the resolution you are set too.  With izoom there is no lost pixels in the optical zoom range.  Some of the older cameras may not handle izoom as well as the newer beasts.  Processing has gotten better.  Heck they do it in TV's!  Buy a highend video processor and you get the best up sampling.  These days even the cheaper TV's are doing a better job at adding pixels.  It gets better every year.
