Optical zoom problem in movie mode


Your camera is not broken. That's by design. Canon cameras do not allow optical zoom use while in movie mode. Canon claims that using the optical zoom in movie mode would cause excessive noise in the movie. However, you can use digital zoom in movie mode. You'll need to go into the menus (press the menu button) and turn digital zoom "on" if it's currently off.

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Zoom


Hey NachesLady,
If the option to turn your digital zoom on or off is grayed out then the mode you have the camera set to does not allow changes to that option in that mode. I would try changing to another mode and see if the option is still grayed out. That being said I would NEVER use the digital zoom feature. All a digital zoom does is electronically crop the image in the camera which can be done easier and better once the images are uploaded to your computer. Digital zoom usually produces images of greatly reduced quality. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

  • The digital zoom cannot be used when the LCD monitor is off.
note_icon_a70.gif
  • images become coarser the more they are digitally zoomed.
  • Since camera shake may become a factor when using the digital zoom, the use of a tripod is recommended.
  • Digital Zoom is disabled when the [Postcard Print Mode] is selected as a image quality setting.
IF this fails, your camera is in need of service.
