Default Can You Do This For Me? 3x Optical Cams Only.

Can some that has a 3x optical zoom lens take a pic at the full 3x zoom and then back at 1x of the same thing so i can see the difference in the pics?
Thank you

Careful Boys (and Girls!). Look at the resolution in the image properties: The wide shot of the chicken is 400x300, whereas the zoom shot is 570 x 450!

You should only make this side by side comparison on a monitor if both images are captured at the same res. and down sampled to the same resolution! Although, if no cropping/re-sizing has been done accidentally, only the relative size proportions will have changed.

So, save the zoom shot and re-sample it at 400x300, same as the wide angle, to get the right perception on screen of magnification (if you believe the original zoom setting was correct to start with).

Happy New Year.

Spot on there Marokero. I like the realstistic 3D looking reflections picked out in the glasses, even on zoom.
