Using the Zoom

When you move the zoom control, the zoom 
lens position changes.

• To zoom in closer to the subject: Move 

toward 

g (telephoto)

• To zoom out and view a larger area: Move 

toward 

f (wide-angle)

When you turn the camera on, the zoom 
moves to the maximum wide-angle 
position.

• A zoom indicator is displayed at the top of 

the shooting screen when the zoom control 
is moved.

• Digital zoom, which allows you to further 

magnify the subject up to approximately 4× 
the maximum optical zoom ratio, can be activated by moving and holding 
the zoom control toward 

g when the camera is zoomed in to the maximum 

optical zoom position.
