I'm not sure if this is new in the Google maps site but you can use the scroll bar to zoom in-between the standard zoom levels. The plus and minus buttons still jump a full zoom level and there doesn't appear to be any change in the raster in the in-between zoom levels although some road labels change (are they vector then?)

Can I get a static map at the in between zoom level as I often want it a bit more zoomed in but not all the way to the next level?

Also is the in-between zoom available in the JavaScript API?

It doesn't look like this is possible from the Google documentation but that's not always very up to date.


This is not currently possible. Google request for this Issue in https://code.google.com/p/gmaps-api-issues/issues/detail?id=9948
