Do you have a zoom lens on your camera? if not, you can get one for it. your lens will say, for example, 70-200mm, or 18-50mm, for sports, you need at least a 200mm or so to get close enough to the action.

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.

Ron

The problem is that u know the sony hdv xr500x when u put it on the picture is very dark we have tried it under light too put but the picture is still dark


Hello
When you look at your pictures are they dark, murky and hard to see? If you took pictures at a wedding, dance recital, theater performance or any indoor event and they came out dark, read on to learn why your pictures are dark, and how to fix this common camera problem.

Many people take pictures of indoor events, only to be unsatisfied with the final outcome of their photos. Although you may have bought the top of the line film or digital camera, there are a few limitations that you need to know about.
To correctly expose your pictures, you camera needs a lot of light. The compact point and shoot varieties adjust for this when you're outside during the daytime, and usually your pictures turn out fine, right? Well, then how come when you take indoor pictures, they sometimes come out too dark? There are two culprits; your zoom function and your flash.
Most compact cameras today offer a zoom function. When I used to work in retail photography sales, the first feature that consumers would ask for is zoom. People love to get close-up pictures without using their feet. Although zoom does bring your subject matter in closer, it also decreases the amount of light that can get into your camera. Essentially, the more you zoom, the less light your camera can receive, and your pictures will be darker.
So, if your taking pictures indoors, in a dark church, gym or other window-less room it is very difficult for your camera to get enough light to properly expose your pictures.
This is when most photographers decide to turn on their flash. The flash on your camera is a great tool to illuminate dark situations that are in close proximity to the camera. Most built-in flash units are designed to allow the light to travel 8-10 feet away in poor quality light and up to 15-20 feet in brighter situations.
What most camera users fail to realize is that although your zoom function is visually bringing you closer to the action, you flash cannot reach that far to illuminate the subject, and your pictures will be dark.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution

I have a Nikon s550 that I cannot get it to zoom in very well. I would like to be able to zoom in close on my daughter as she plays softball.


Your camera has a 5X zoom which is not great at getting real close to players on a softball field. The new "super-zoom" cameras are better suited for that. You could try to move closer to her for better results.

I have a Nikon N60 w/all the original equipment and case. Hardly used. What is a good asking price to sell?


In the UK it would realistically go for between £40-£50 if complete and in the original box, and prices are still falling. An excellent unboxed example will be £20-£30. Expect prices to be even lower in North America.

My last one was boxed and virtually unused with the kit zoom lens for free on FreeCycle.

It's not a popular model, and the lack of a depth of field preview button on that model means that even photography students tend to shun it. The kit 28-80mm lens is OK and although it can be used on digital Nikons it's not popular as the effective zoom range magnifies up on their smaller image sensors to become a not-very-useful 42-120mm

What setting to use while using A PENTAX K100D WITH A ZOOM LEN while shooting indoor sports pics


Tlthough there is an automatic sports setting on the left wheel (see the runner icon)...
You can set the ISO speed to 3200 and do not use the flash (set flash to "Manual".
You maigh use the telephoto lens at 80mm, or so.

This works great!

or use the programmed auto for sports (the runner icon)..

Hope this helps!

Zoom


If it came with a manual, the answer will be in that.
Reading the literature I see there is no optical zoom so it will be digital zoom, which you don't want anyway because this will affect image quality.
While recording? Only way it seems would be by using your feet - moving closer or further away from the subject. So short answer, from what I can tell, is No.
