What is the difference between digital zoom and optical zoom? Digital zoom is the camera sensor cropping in on an image. Think of it as your eyes trying to focus in on something far away. Optical zoom is using a lens to focus the incoming light onto the imaging sensor. Think of it as using binoculars to see something far away. Optical zoom is superior since it is focusing the image on the sensor with a lens rather than just cropping pixels./p>
