What other cameras (except from Sony) have some sort of SmartZoom? And I mean SmartZoom, that is using the full sensor resolution and cropping down the image to the user set (lower) resolution and not interpolating the image.
I wish Canon PowerShot S80 had it. If so, I'd buy it.
And how about just cropping by yourself in post-processing? I mean, how often will you use that smart zoom? Ifnotvery often, manually post-cropping those few images may be an alternative.

cheers, nymano.

Well, first of all, the cam is for my dad who WILL NOT do any postprocessing at all. Secondly, smartzoom simply saves memory and energy - instead of storing an 8 MP picture I would store a 4 or 5 MP one.
