Of course if you do the zoom in camera in the DSP you can use the full pre-processing bit depth (I think it's 14 bit on the 350) before any compression artifacts are added and the bit depth reduced to 8 Bit.

Hi Doug,

I reviewd the footage thru vimeo , no-scaling, to do my guesses before I found your published results.

Interestingly, me results are:
You can see higher resolution on the optical ones, but if you didnt do the A/B in one screen it would be VERY hard to judge it.
I found it more easy with texts (boatīs name etc.).

I would love to see something similar in 1920x1080 (vimeo was 1280x720).
From my trainings, optical was a clear winner in FullHD over the digital extender.

But anyway, I am impressed how close both pictures compete to each other, especially if you have no A/B comparison...
