REC Mode/Recording Techniques

Q29 Why does the image on the monitor screen become coarse at high HD Zoom factors?
A29 During normal snapshot recording, the image that enters the CCD is simply displayed on the monitor screen.
With HD Zoom, the center part of the image on the monitor screen is extracted and then simply enlarged so it fills the monitor screen. This means that though HD Zoom provides a higher quality recorded image, the displayed image appears coarser than the original image from which is was extracted. An image recorded with HD Zoom is extracted from the center of the original image, and so there is virtually no loss of image quality.
