[Tech Wednesday] [Tech Wednesday #34] Optical vs Digital Zooming In Camera Smartphones : Which Is Better ?

Greetings Mi Fans,

Welcome to yet another Tech Wednesday !

The cameras in a smartphone play an important role in deciding a smartphone for the youth generation, and particularly with the introduction of new secondary lenses. The Periscope/Telephoto lens has been gaining huge popularity and people now prefer to opt for a smartphone with these lenses onboard.


There are majorly 2 types of zoom: Optical & Digital. To know more about it, keep reading:

Digital Zoom

Some cameras offer a digital zoom, which is simply some in-camera image processing. When you use a digital zoom, the camera enlarges the image area at the center of the frame and trims away the outside edges of the picture.
The result is the same as when you open an image in your photo-editing program, crop away the edges of the picture, and then enlarge the remaining portion of the photo.

Optical Zoom

If taking a lot of photos from far away subjects is important to you, be sure that the camera you buy has an optical zoom. An optical zoom is a true zoom lens, like the zoom lens you’d use on a film camera. They produce much better-quality images.

Instead of having a complicated moving lens system, we have a second sensor with a longer focal length for that ‘zoomed-in' perspective. This type of zoom typically offers the best image quality.

This type of zoom, which is rapidly being adopted by many smartphone manufacturers, enhances images captured by the telephoto camera using AI or computational photography methods to fill in the missing details of textures and colours.
