Question about Digital Cameras
I am not sure it is zooming right. Seems it doesn't zoom very far.
How do you make it zoom better?
I can zoom something in from across the room but no farther than that, unless I get closer. I have the small lense that came with the kit.
You need to be more specific about which lens you've got! I'm guessing you've probably got the 18-55mm which is the most popular lens to be supplied with the kits.
From what you describe, the lens is working correctly. The problem is the maximum focal length of the lens (55mm) is not going to give you massive magnification. (Basically, the bigger the number, the more powerful the zoom.)
The sort of lenses that you can snoop on someone from half a mile away are going to be 300mm upwards.
This is one of the reasons that you can change the lens on an SLR camera. Now you might ask, if that's the case, why they don't make a 18-500mm lens. The problem is that the bigger the range of the zoom, the more the image quality suffers, so you tend to find the zoom lenses go up in a number of steps.
If you need more magnification, the only answer is to buy a more powerful lens I'm afraid :-(
Hope this helps,
