Clear Image Zoom
Tucked away in the Movie menu (5/9 ) on the A6400 is the Zoom feature. I have started to use the clearimage zoom choice and I am very impressed with the quality. It extends my 18-135 favourite lens to 36 to 270 making it 54mm - 400mm ( 35mm equiv) .It is very useful and becomes a very good tool.
With the present virus situation lockdown I have limited my shooting to near home or in my garden.
All images were hand held and sometimes the onboard flash was used.

you can see that the blow-up from the image using the x2 zoom function is better than a cropped version from the original image

Found a new location near home for some more pics using the 18-135 with the x2 clear zoom function. Managed to capture a Kingfisher in full flight while focusing on a few residents having a chat!
