the Kodak Z18 has no optical zoom. Only 4x digital zoom. Digital zoom just magnifies the pixels. "Softness" is expected when zoom is used. The only "solution" is to get closer to the subject and not use the zoom.
I recently bought a Kodak zi8 camera. For some reason when I zoom the picture becomes soft (out of focus).
Video is great on wide angle outdoors, but even in bright sunshine the picture becomes soft when I zoom in.
What's the solution.
Thank you in advance for your help.
