Using optical zoom
Use optical zoom to get up to 3X closer to your subject. Optical zoom is effective
when the lens is no closer than 24 in. (60 cm) to the subject or 5.1 in. (12.9 cm) in
Close-up mode. You can change optical zoom before (but not during) video recording.
Use the viewfinder or LCD to frame your subject.
Press Telephoto (T) to zoom in. Press Wide Angle (W) to zoom out.
The zoom indicator shows zoom status.
Take the picture or video.
Using digital zoom
Use digital zoom in any Still mode to get up to 15X magnification.
1 Press the Telephoto (T) button to the optical zoom limit (3X). Release the button,
then press it again.
2 Take the picture or video.
NOTE: You cannot use digital zoom for video recording. You may notice decreased image quality when
using digital zoom. The blue slider on the zoom indicator pauses and turns red when the picture
quality reaches the limit for an acceptable 4 x 6-in. (10 x 15 cm) print.
