Re: Quality of digital zoom vs PC crop

Assuming you're talking F7*7 or similar class, then Sony's effort is generally regarded as slightly superior to Photoshop's bicubic interpolation (for the reason you mention), although there are other upsampling regimens that can do better than the default PS method.

there is a bit of difference about what the conclusion was. Was it:

1. No difference
2. Digital zoom superior (upsampling raw rather than jpeg image)

Thanks in advance!
