XZ-1 full digital zoom samples?
I've been hearing that this camera is better than average within that "forbidden" digital zoom territory. Does anyone have some samples to post showing how it acts in that "zone"?
Would that give it 16X zoom potential? Thanks.
second image is digital telephoto at maximum setting, just tried it to see what it was like, normally it is unavailable beacause it is disabled when any of the Raw image settings are on. Not upto my image quality requirements for regular use, but I did not expect it to be.
I see what you mean, Aaron. Lots of "smearing" in the higher detailed areas such as the trees.
Not a technique that I would think to use. Just heard of folks that seemed happy with it. I'd have to say "for emergency use only".
Thanks for the test shot.
There is no magic about digital zoom. You can't get something out of nothing. You can reconstruct the image using RAW file and get better result. But... Digital Zoom has the advantage of automatic metering. So you get more accurately exposed image.
