2X digital zoom should give an image around 1.25Mp from a 5Mp camera. So you must have used a little over 2X on the digital zoom.

Most cameras interpolate back to 5Mp or whatever resolution you have set. I prefer the way your camera does it. No since wasting the space for something you can do in any viewer or image editor just as well.

ahh well that explains it.

digital zoom causes decrease in Megapixel?

As I recall, when using just alittle digital zoom -> no decrease
when going past the half way point in digital zoom -> .8MP

Kodak should put that in their manual!!

ok i found a reference to the .8 MP (point 8 megaoixel)

Steve's review listed P850 product spec:

"ISO Auto or 50-400 in PASM, 800-1600 at 0.8MP"

hmmm..... :angry:
