Snapshot Tutorial
• The higher the digital zoom factor, the coarser the recorded image. Note that the 
camera also has a function that lets you record using digital zoom without image 
deterioration (page 46).
• Use of a tripod is recommended to protect against image blur due to camera 
movement when shooting with telephoto.
• Performing a zoom operation changes the lens aperture.
• Digital zoom only is available during movie recording. You can adjust the optical 
zoom setting before you press the shutter button to start movie recording.
If you hold the zoom controller towards z (Telephoto), the zoom operation will stop 
when the optical zoom factor reaches its maximum. Momentarily releasing the zoom 
controller and then holding it again towards z (Telephoto) will switch to digital 
zoom, which you can use to set an even higher zoom factor.
• During zoom, a zoom bar on the monitor screen shows the current zoom setting.
