has anyone tried out the digital zoom yet? I just tested it. On my old 3mp compact, the camera simple cropped the image, so 5x digital zoom have a 640x480 pixels image. BUT... this camera does not crop! Some kind of interpolation takes place and at 2x digital zoom, the image is still 9mp in size! quality/sharpness is quite good also I must say!

So... 300mm with 2x zoom is 600mm, adding the teleconverter of 2.2x makes a frightning 1320mm zoom .....:G:?

I have no idea if 1320mm will give a decent picture, but I'm sure I'll have fun trying :-)

I guess I'll have to use iso800 and a tripod :lol:
