Zoom Factor
Moving the zoom lever will display the zoom bar (which indicates the 
zoom position). The color of the zoom bar will change depending on 
the zoom range.
-
White range: optical zoom range where the image will not appear 
grainy.
-
Yellow range: digital zoom range where the image is not noticeably 
grainy (ZoomPlus)
-
Blue range: digital zoom range where the image will appear grainy.
Because the blue range will not be available at some resolution 
settings (p. 79) the maximum zoom factor can be achieved by 
following step 1.
Focal length when optical and digital zoom are combined is as follows (35mm 
film equivalent).
4.5 – 90.0 mm (25 – 500 mm with optical zoom alone) 
To deactivate digital zoom, press the 
n button, choose [Digital Zoom] on 
the 
4 tab, and then choose [Off].
