Digital Zoom vs Optical Zoom

posted by carbat, May 27, 2013 4:31 AM — 1 comments

*Digital zoom
Digital zoom is basically a digital crop within the camera. It is not a true magnification. When you use digital zoom you are effectively only capturing part of an image, with lower resolution than the full frame image would have.

*Optical zoom
Optical zoom is magnification created by a lens. This type of magnification is a "true zoom" and should not adversely affect image quality. Optical zoom should be your first choice for magnification whenever possible.
