    Optics on my F1.4 lens are probably better than your R1, they are also
    bigger so that this is possible, can you swap to an F1.4 lens? A F1.8?

    Fine, use your R1 I will use my D-SLR we will both be happy. I use mine at
    1600and 3200 ISO, how do your photos come out at these settings on your R1,
    shutter lag includes focusing time in my book 3/4 of a second is abysmal,
    you can keep it thanks.

    I do actually have an Apple camera and I would rather use a rock to scratch
    on the pavement than use the camera to capture images.

    My R1? You must have me confused with someone else.
    Why are you trying to personalize this?

    Quite a few actually. Personally I don't see much point to electronic
    zoom--if it could be done independently of optical zoom and the center
    point could be moved it might be a useful focusing aid but in its current
    form it is mainly useful in using the camera as a spotting scope rather
    than for photography.

    Anyone who wants real detail. Digital zoom just does some kind of
    interpolation between the captured pixels. It has no way to recreate the
    detail that the sensor never captured in the first place.

    You must be right, otherwise someone would have done this trick
    already.

    Quite a few?? I would love to see these mythical digital cameras with 500x
    zoom, please give more info and model numbers.

    Thanks.

    Not true at all, one of the guys in this news group has developed software
    that can do just that!!

    Someone has. If you want it, it's there. Let's just hope the idea
    doesn't spread.

    I was actually thinking of camcorders--Sharp VLZ3U, Panasonic VDR-M50, and
    Canon ZR700 would be three but there are many others. On still cameras it
    generally doesn't go beyond 48x or so.

    No way! Smart interpolation algorithms can do a pretty good job of producing
    crisp looking images but there is no way to generate information that was
    never captured by the sensor.

    If you had actually used them with digital zoom ever you would know how
    silly it would be to say that they are an option.
