Suggestions/Tips 

¬

• It is possible to further magnify a 

subject already magnified 3 times with 
the optical zoom by 3 more times with 
the digital zoom, thereby reaching a 
maximum of 9 times.

• When using the digital zoom the 

picture quality becomes deteriorated.

• In the digital zoom range, the stabilizer 

function may not be effective.

• We recommend using a tripod in the 

digital zoom range.

• The digital zoom is canceled when the 

LCD monitor is turned off.
