Optical and Digital Zoom

Whilst out on the Matlock Bath walk today we saw some rock climbers on the cliff in the distance. I thought this would be a good time to play around with the digital zoom on the new camera (Canon A650). The photos in this post start fully zoomed out.

The picture above is zoomed in fully with the optical zoom. This is a 6x zoom. Then I zoomed in fully with the digital zoom, which is a 24x zoom. This basically just inlarges the particular section of the image. But because the camera is 12mega pixels, you get a lot of milage out of the zoom.

The image is a little noisy, but overall not bad I think. Well it was an interesting test anyway :-)
