What is the difference in the optical and digital zoom?


Hi,

Find the difference below

Digital Zoom

1. Digital zoom is a part of digital cameras, and camcorders, which helps to crop the entire image, and then digitally enlarge the size of the viewfinder of the portion that is needed to zoom in on
2. Digital zoom crops the image down to a centred area with the same ratio as the original, and also interpolating the result back up to the pixel dimensions of the original. this method involves cropping, hence the resolution and quality is reduced
3. Digital zoom, crops a portion of the image and then enlarges it back to size. And due to this, image quality is reduced in comparison with the original one.
4. Using the digital zoom allows the user to get closer to the subject when the photographer wants to be discreet about taking pictures, like taking a picture of a person in a graduation ceremony.

Optical Zoom

1. While taking a picture using a Camera to want to get a close shot of the subject without moving physically closer, photographers use the optical zoom.
2. The optical zoom ratio of a digital camera measures how much the lens can actually zoom in to make subjects appear closer. Optical zoom, enlarges a picture while keeping the resolution and sharpness of the picture high.

3. There is no relation between optical zoom and the resolution of the photo, as optical zoom only enlarges the whole image or the subject to a certain range. So image quality only depends upon the mega pixel (MP) of the camera

4. Optical zoom is very useful, while taking a picture of a landscape, or to get a closer view of a subject, without reducing the quality of the entire image, like taking a picture of a Rainbow in the sky.

The problem is myself I don't know how to use it!!!!!!!!!! I have eos rebel T2i with a ef-s55-250 lens I took some photos of my grandsons doing a roof job and they look really far away,thought I had...


Practice, practice and more practice. With the 18-55 lens you are going to have to use your feet as zoom too. What you see in the viewfinder should be what you see in the final picture so if you can not zoom in close enough you will need to move yourself closer.
Don't be discouraged it will get better.

How to do a close up shot?


  • If you mean you want to know how to zoom (bring distant things closer): on the back of your camera (on the screen's side), near the top, there will be a couple of buttons marked "T" (meaning Teli: brings closer) and "W" (meaning Wide: covers a wider range) pressing the "T" will bring far images closer.
  • If you are referring to taking pictures of objects very close to the lens: Find the option called "macro focus" (commonly accessed by pressing the "left" key while in normal photo mode) this will let your camera focus at very small distances (about 5cm from the lens)

How to make my distant scenes look closer


You can do that in any photo editing program. It's called "crop". It allows you to cut out what you don't want giving the impression that you were much closer. It helps if you have the camera set to take pictures at its maximum number of megapixels and the high quality setting.

THE DIGITAL ZOOM APPEARS NOT TO WORK. MAGNIFYING TO 16X CAUSES A BLURRY PIX, IN BOTH VIEWER AND PHOTO. DO NOT THINK THIS IS A RESULT OF ANY FUNCTION SELECTED.


Digital zoom magnifies the pixels to seem like you're getting closer to the subject but you're not. The larger the pixels, the worse the picture will look. You should never use the digital zoom (most people disable it). Only use the optical zoom.

Optical / Digital Zoom


Press the "T" for telephoto and get closer to the subject. Optical telephoto zoom is like using a telescope to get closer to the subject before taking the picture. With optical Telephoto zoom you can maintain the full resolution and quality. After you have used all of the optical Telephoto range, the camera will continue to enhance the image with Digital Zoom. This enhances the image inside the camera by reducing the resolution and expanding fewer pixels to fill the same image space. Use the "W" Wide-angle button to back-up away from the subject or get a bigger area into your picture. You can even ZOOM IN on a picture in the playback mode for a better look at the details. Turn the Mode Dial to Playback, then press the "T". Use the Enter button to move around the display area. Press the middle of the ENTER KEY to see your images in thumbnail view and / or scroll through several images at one time to find a specific / special image quickly.

Optical vs. digital zoom


It's important to understand this difference, as you could be disappointed with the results if you use one rather than the other. Optical zoom works like the zoom on a traditional film camera. When you push the button to zoom in or out, physical lens elements move inside the camera, reducing the field of view and making the object you're shooting appear closer. Digital zoom, on the other hand, has no moving parts. The camera interpolates a small portion of an image to artificially restore the file to its original size. Using its electronic brain, the digital camera analyzes what it sees and digitally zooms in, usually two or three times closer. Unfortunately, digital zoom also reduces the resolution of an image, so your picture will tend to be more pixilated than the same image taken with an optical zoom camera. If you're just snapping an image to e-mail to a friend, this loss of resolution won't be so noticeable. But in situations where the highest quality counts, skip the digital zoom and use your PC's image-editing tools to zero in on your subject.

Images appear to be very noisy or grainy


When DIGITAL ZOOM is set to ON in the MODE MENU, the lens can zoom into the Digital Zoom portion of the zoom by pressing the zoom (T) button. When you see the zoom indicator on LCD enter the red portion (towards Tele), the image in the viewfinder will become closer. However, since the D-630 is using the digital portion of the zoom, the lens doesn't physically zoom, it takes the existing image and enlarges your image using an electronic program. This can result in a “noisy” or “grainy” look to the image. This is normal when using the DIGITAL ZOOM. The DIGITAL ZOOM can be turned OFF to prevent you from using this portion of the zoom. Locate DIGITAL ZOOM in the Mode Menu and set it to OFF.

Noisy or grainy images


When you press the “T” zoom button, the image in the viewfinder will become closer. However, since the D-435 uses a digital zoom, the lens doesn't physically zoom, it takes the existing image and enlarges your image using an electronic program. This can result in a “noisy” or “grainy” look to the image, which is normal when using the digital zoom.
