Just recently I realized that the digital zoom on my camera wasn't working. The normal zoom (3x) works, but up it doesn't zoom up to 11x anymore. Any ideas? Suggestions? Help?
Recently, while visiting Canada, a lady had told me that it could possibly be because I've used Alkaline batteries. Could this be the case?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Digital Zoom Problem
First, it is possible to disable the digital zoom feature on your camera. See the attached picture for instructions on how to make sure that digital zoom support is turned on.
Second, digital zoom is only supported when you have the LCD turned on.
Third, digital zoom isn't really a zoom. It is simply taking a smaller picture, and then stretching it out. Instead, you should take the picture with no zoom, then crop the photo using your PC to get it to the size you like. Keep in mind that digital zooming and cropping are technically the same thing. Both lower the amount of information you are capturing, and both will reduce the overall quality of the photo when you print it.
I recommend Preclick's photo organizer (for Windows). It is free and can be downloaded from www.preclick.com.

The extended zoom you mention is possibly the Digital zoom. A lot of point and shoot compact digital cameras have a basic 3x optical zoom and 3x digital zoom.... though picture quality will deteriorate once you enter the digital zoom areas.
This camera has an auto lens. Which means it will focus automaticly evey sec. you can turn this option off:

Digital zoom enlarges the ccd image and will become more pixelated the more you zoom and optical zoom uses an actual lens to magnify the image coming into the camera. optical zoom is better than digital zoom.
