I occasionally read comments from individuals giving advice about never, never, never use digital zoom. Now I realize that digital zoom is not perfect, but maybe it's not quite as bad as some people suggest.

Then, from the same position, I used the digital zoom to get this photograph of the same old barn. It has been cropped slightly and straightened. But for a 600 mm digital zoom image I don't think it is too bad:
