Do you have the stock 18-200 or the 18-105? They have have a servo zoom rocker on the side just for the lens. Then set the rocker on the camera for digital zoom.

Re: Is the digital zoom lossless?

yes Randy, it worked!
I have the 18-200 lens and has a servo zoom on the lens.

So I did 11x zooming on the lens and digital zoom worked on both zoom rockers of the camcorder.

The zooming difference between 11x and a extra 2x digital wasn't huge at first sight.Can be wrong.

I will test this on sunday. thank you!

Glad I could help good luck, BTW there is a loss when you are all the way in on the digital zoom but its pretty minor and on a action sport i doubt its a big problem.

After filming the soccer game in most cases the 11x optical zoom was enough. Sometimes I used the extra digital zoom the film the fans in close up on the other side of the field.

For soccer not a big problem the digital zoom. But switching from the zoom on the lens itself to one of 2 zoom rockers to digital zoom was not easy. When I already needed one hand to operate the tripod to made pans.
