Nep G, yes that is true. Digital zoom, imho, just tends to make the pixels larger. So it looks closer, at the cost of clarity. That's why you should get the C-750 with a 10x optical zoom. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
But, if you are just doing plant stuff, with the super macro mode, you don't really need it (long optical zoom). Once you go into super macro mode (at least on Olympus cameras), the zoom is locked, and you only focus.
