why can't we zoom in on the side when taking a picture? i know some phones use optical zoom but those that use digital don't have to zoom in on the center, right?

    Because lens distortion. Digital zoom is just a fancy name for cropping. Try cropping your photos off-center, some will look funny.

    @Kimmax exactly, why can't i just do that while taking the picture?

    @gronostaj what's wrong with it looking funny

    Why would you want to? The images are typically sharpest at the center in any camera. You can crop it afterwards anyway.

    Digital zoom is not very useful in the first place, except with video.

    @electrineer yeah i can but it just seems pointless that i have to crop it later
