Using the Optical Zoom
You can make people and subjects appear 
closer with the 3 times optical zoom, and 
landscapes can be recorded in wide angle.
∫ To make subjects appear closer use 
(Tele)
When the picture size setting is [
] (6M).
∫ To make subjects appear further away 
use (Wide)
When the picture size setting is [
] (6M).
• The optical zoom is set to Wide (1
k) 
when the camera is turned on.
• The picture may have some distortion 
(typical example: vertical straight line bent 
outwards). This is due to the lens 
aberration, which is common to some 
extent with all photographic lenses. 
Distortion may be more visible when using 
a wider area of the zoom lens as you get 
closer to the subject.
• When using the zoom lens at high 
magnification, the quality of the picture 
can be enhanced if a tripod is used. At 
high magnification, even small 
movements can cause a slight decrease 
in picture sharpness.
• If you use the zoom function after focusing 
on the subject, focus on the subject again.
• In motion picture mode [
], the zoom 
magnification is fixed to the value set at 
the start of recording.
• The indicated zoom magnification is an 
approximation.
• The lens barrel (P11) is ejected or 
retracted according to the zoom position.
• Take care not to interrupt the motion of the 
lens barrel while the zoom lever is rotated.
∫ Taking pictures using the extended 
optical zoom (EZ)
If the picture size is set to [
] (3M EZ) 
etc., the zoom ratio is extended to a 
maximum of 4.1
k when the digital zoom is 
set to [OFF]. This allows subjects to be 
recorded at an even higher magnification. 
(P71)
∫ Taking pictures using digital zoom
When you set [D.ZOOM] in the [REC] mode 
menu to [ON], you can use the digital zoom 
to take even closer pictures. (P75)
