Digital Zoom Vs. Optical Zoom

Optical Zoom vs Digital Zoom

When it comes to choosing a surveillance camera, understanding the difference between optical zoom and digital zoom is crucial. Optical zoom is a feature that physically adjusts the camera lens to magnify an image, providing higher quality and clearer details without sacrificing image resolution. On the other hand, digital zoom simply enlarges the pixels of an image, resulting in a lower quality and pixelated image. Choosing a camera with optical zoom is recommended for capturing distant objects or people with clarity and precision. Until very high megapixel security cameras become more prevalent and cost effective, investing in a surveillance camera with optical zoom will ensure that you capture important details accurately and effectively.
