I was reading the very helpful threads for us newbies reand found this point that Kym made re noise from high levels...
Pixel size on the Sensor: Bigger pixels in general equal less noise
So...I re-read one of Rick's posts in the newbie thread re Digital zoom and turning it off ( as I did and have kept off since reading his post) because it causes big pixels compared to fine grain photos ( my interpretation, sorry)
My question is this...if using a higher and using normal zoom on the camera for a shot, should I turn on the digital zoom to get the bigger pixels and if I do this will it cut down on the noise created via the level?
Quite possibly barking up the wrong tree re all of this but am interested in learning so thought I'd ask anyway.
