    The smallest optical zoom ratio is the subjectsoriginal size when zoomed-out.

    Zoom magniication over 65x is done through digital image processing, and is thereore called digital zoom. Digital zooming is possible up to 2200x. Set

    Zoom Type to Digital Zoom.page 62To maintain sharp ocus, the minimum possible distance between the camcorder and subject is about 1cm (about 0.39 inch) or wide-angle and 1m(about 39.4 inches) or telephoto.Optical zoom preserves image quality, but the image quality may suer when you use digital zoom.Fast zooming or zooming in a subject that is a good distance away may cause the camcorder to ocus slowly. I this occurs, use Manual Focus.page 56We recommend you use Anti-Shake (HDIS) or handheld recording when the subject is zoomed in and enlarged.Frequent use o the zoom unction consumes more power.I you zoom when recording, the camcorder may record the sound o the zoom lever or zoom button operating.When you use the zoom unction, you can decrease its speed by slowly moving the Zoom (T/W) lever. Moving the lever quickly increases the zoom speed.However, you cannnot use the Zoom (T/W) button on the display to adjust the zoom speed.
