I don't think it has digital zoom. The IQ would probably suffer quite a bit.

You use the "Zoom Bracketing" setting in "Continuous" shooting mode.

I must have missed something, if i use the "Zoom Braketing", it will enlarge even more ? or am i completely of track here.

I was thinking that the numbers engraved on the lens where a little off, because i did compare the field of view and enlargement with my Fuji S3 with a 18-200 lens, if place the lenses on the same numbers, it does not match at all in the length you see...

Did you take into account the 1.5x crop factor on the S3? 200mm on the S3 would actually give you approximately the same as 300mm on the HS10

You press the Up arrow, in normal shooting mode, on the 4-way selector pad to activate digital zoom.

Hey, look at that....just tried it my showroom and actually seemed to get a clearer picture with the digital zoom - did it three times with the same results - maybe that's the "digital" stabilization?????

Thanks for the tip 2raj! I must have missed it in the manual, or just blew by it assuming that digital zoom on my other cameras has been generally useless (I turned it off on my wife's Cannon pocket camera).

Good tip. It's like an in-camera instant crop. Pretty cool.
