Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Zoom

The digital zoom on my PowerShot SX100 IS is not working. When I go into the tools menu I see that it is turned of but that menu item is greyed out and I can't change it.

Is there something I'm missing?

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

Unfortunately digital zoom never works well. It's best to turn digital zoom off in the menu and never use it.
This is for any camera!

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.

Photo quality


It will be grainy a bit specially in digital zoom and even in optical zoom to the full level it might become grainy as camera is unable to absorb all the light from distant object......
