As a Jolla user, I can use the camera app with zoom functionality.

The zoom function without a real zoom lens is more or less useless feature, it just degrades the image quality because of interpolation to get the image size back to original pixel amount.

But if the zoom would crop the image (that is, no scaling) to what the screen shows, this could be somewhat useful feature.

I suggest that zoom feature would be added and in the settings user can choose if he wants traditional "digital zoom" (upscaling) or cropping. Best of both worlds!

This is available in software version, Naamankajärvi

You can now pinch to zoom. It's digital zoom but it's an opt-in feature ;)

I know I go offtopic now, but what about https://together.jolla.com/question/3577/add-capability-to-tap-to-focus-on-a-certain-area-of-the-image/

sound more important to me than sofware scaling :)

reply in that link if you can give info about it...
