    I can't seem to access the digital zoom function- it's greyed out on the menu and I can't figure out how to un-grey it - anyone come across this issue? The manual says you can not access digital zoom if super-macro is selected, but even in AF or MF I still can't seem to access it.

    help!

    Nevermind! I just figured it out- I shoot in RAW format; Digital zoom can NOT be selected unless you are working in JPEG. As soon as I switched the format to "LF" (large/fine JPEG) I was able to go into the menu and turn digital zoom "ON."

    Makes perfect sense, of course, but Olympus doesn't mention this anywhere in their documentation. I guess maybe I was supposed to know that already? :wink: whoops!

    I'm glad you figured this out and shared the information here, Nicole.

    Can you tell us what you think about the digital zoom, if you'd tried it out?
