What is Clear Image Zoom? Is it digital zoom under another name? Is it just the same as a Nikon FX / DX switchable camera?
Well let the boffins at Sony demo zoom in without losing image quality or “Clear Image Zoom” as they call it.
This video is an introduction of Clear Image Zoom function, which uses the Sony exclusive By Pixel Super Resolution Technology. It allows you to enlarge the image with close to the original image quality. The camera first zooms optically to the maximum optical magnification, then uses Clear Image Zoom technology to enlarge the image an additional 2x, producing sharp, clear images despite the increased zoom ratio.
