The facts of zooming

Written by Jakob Jelling

Zooming is often seen as a great tool which could actually make a camcorder more expensive and valuable. Many times, we think a camcorder with a powerful zoom is much better than other which does not offer such characteristic, but not always this is such a great quality as we would think.

Many times, when we use our camcorder zoom, we loose image quality. Zooming increasesrepparttar image size by amplifying pixels which actually causesrepparttar 137395 subject to loose resolution and quality. The more you zoom in,repparttar 137396 more pixels become amplified andrepparttar 137397 more image quality you loose.

This way, whenever possible, it is always highly recommendable to actually approachrepparttar 137398 subject you wish to zoom in instead of using this camera feature in order to avoid loosing quality. Therefore, whenever possible you should try to avoid zooming and, instead of it, simply walk closer. Whether you are using an analog camcorder or a digital one, by moving closer to your subject you would maintain your video or image quality in a much higher level than if you usedrepparttar 137399 zoom.
