zooming in on photos with Nikon D200

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Dave Phillips, Oct 23, 2007.

  1. I just got a Nikon D200. When I am reviewing my pictures on the camera, I
    want to be able to zoom in on them to see the quality. When I hit the play
    and then the enter button it only zooms a little. How can I zoom in more?

    Just realize that because of the small screen even a zoomed in view may be
    misleading about focus.

    Actually, if you look at a pixel-level zoom (ie where each screen
    pixel corresponds to 1 image pixel), then it's just as good as a
    computer screen for me. Getting familiar with what a non-blurred image
    looks like for the sharpening setting you're using is important to
    evaluate sharpness, though/

    But what you say does keep getting repeated on usenet and various
    forums.

    Do Nikon cameras like the D100, D200, D2X, etc. display the actual image on
    the LCD screen or just the thumbnail of the image?

    Using the LCD to enlarge an image to check focus would be very different if
    it's just the thumbnail image that's being displayed and enlarged.

    I'd appreciate anyone's input.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    If you shoot raw, it uses the embedded jpeg (which is full-size, but
    low quality). It is still perfectly usable for judging focus, if you
    ask me. But try it out, maybe you feel differently.

  7. Oh, it is. It isn't worth beans for exposure and color either.

    But if you're shooting RAWs...
