“Cloud Horse” is taken from quite a distance, with my full 5x optical zoom lens.
But then there’s an additional “digital zoom” option, which is this one. I was curious how close it’d get.
I usually never ever use digital zoom, as it’s never good, it’s a computer interpolating pixels, it’s not “real life”.
(note – this would be a bit clearer if I was resting the camera on a fence, but it still looks kind of cool).
