My Sony DSC-S70 digital is equipped with a precision 6x zoom.
Optical zoom - - is unknown to me. It also has a 3.3 Mega Pixels CCD. Note
that: digital zooming deteriorates the picture quality. So.......
For me - - I find the best photos are taken when I
use a higher Image size/resolution ( like 1280x960 or even higher).
It does take up more space on the memory stick and the size is quite large, but
it's worth the clarity. Later, on the computer I can cut away the excess,
without cutting away the size or reducing the quality of the photo. If I do
reduce the size of the photo it's still better quality than beginning with a
lower resolution/Image size - like 640x480.
(Photo quality IS compromised a little though when I
compress it for displaying the photo on Iris-Photos.)
Using the Sharpness Level option in conjunction with the
higher resolution - - makes for great computer photos, reproduced photos on
photo paper, as well as poster size print-outs. Investing in a larger
memory stick is definitely worth the investment.
The Carl Zeiss MTF lens does a top notch job reproducing the
subject contrast. The camera also has a built in microphone to
record the names of the iris (or whatever) as I take the photo. (that comes
in handy) Rarely do I use the focus and AE options, but when I do - - that
can make a difference in the photo as well.
