Optical zoom doesnot work while shooting video

Hi,

While shooting a video, my optical zoom doesn't work. When I bought the camera I was able to use this feature. I don't know what happened to the settings, it doesn't work now.
Is there any settings I need to change to activate zoom while taking videos? Please suggest.

Cheers
Shyam

Setting the ''digital Zoom''


The digital zoom works fine on mine. It sounds like your have encountered a couple of defective models.

However, even once you get the digital zoom to work, it gets really grainy, so I don't use it.

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.

Combining zoom modes for closer long range photos


Hi, if you go into camera setup and make sure that the digital zoom is on then the camera will automatically go seemlessley from optical to digital zoom when the maximum optical zoom is reached. The digital zoom can only be used in certain modes, so if you cannot change the digital zoom to on because it is 'greyed out' change the camera shooting mode. please can you clarify the second request. Kind regards

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.

Telephoto zoom


The D-565 camera has a 4x digital zoom, in addition to the 3x optical zoom, which gives you a total of 12x zoom overall. Simply use the Shooting Mode menu to activate the Digital Zoom feature.
