Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
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.
Three things: 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.
