rx100 ZOOM (stills) condensed from manual

condensed from Sony manual: (will add samples later today)

ZOOM four types available (only for Jpegs): Clear Zoom is surprisingly good

The icon and zoom bar on the screen change in accordance with the zoom type you use.

A: Optical Zoom at Image Size L (20mp) 3.6x 28mm to 100mm

Face Detection works in Optical Zoom only
Optical Zoom Only for: Smile Shutter, Self-portrait, RAW or RAW & JPEG

B: Extended Optical Zoom, (jpeg only)

no deterioration in the original image quality, (by trimming image processing).
Image Size M (10mp) 5.1x 28mm to 142mm
Image Size S (5mp) 7.2x 28mm to 202mm

VGA size (0.3mp) 28x 28mm to 784mm (sounds crazy, but try it, lcd looks like crap, take the shot, look on your monitor, omg)

C: Clear Image Zoom (jpeg only) close to the original image quality (double the extended optical zoom ranges)

Image Size L (20mp) 7.2x 28mm to 202mm
Image Size M (10mp) 10.0x 28mm to 280mm
Image Size S (5mp) 14.0x 28mm to 392mm

VGA size (0.3mp) 54x 28mm to 1,512mm (it is insane, the shot I just got)

D: Digital Zoom Less than the original image quality

That may look like crazy but I use it on occasions to see stuff very far away like reading signs etc.

Re: rx100 ZOOM (stills) condensed from manual

I did a search but couldn't find any direct comparison between images gotten with 202mm optical zoom 5mp (cropping) vs. clear image zoom 202mm 20mp (extrapolating).
Theoretically clear image zoom 202 images should have an edge?

Very interesting!
Could you please post some samples?
How is the extended zoom in video mode?
