When Canon’s t3i hit the market, we were interested in the new digital zoom feature offered on the entry-level DSLR.

Any good photographer knows that the usefulness of digital zoom for stills is limited…but what about video?

Since even full HD images are roughly 2 megapixels (or about 6mp on a non-3CCD sensor), there’s been buzz about using the new digital zoom for video to extend the t3i’s optical reach.

We use a quick and dirty test to see if this theory is fact…or a digital dream.

Thanks, @seancom for the testing idea…
