Default Can't zoom using camera?

Hello, tried to zoom in using the camera today but no luck. I assumed the volume buttons would do it but all they did was change the ringer volume.. Nothing in the settings either.

Is it incapable of zooming or am I missing something??

It might be that it can't zoom when the resolution is set at maz. That's what it's like with my phone, though it's not a Galaxy S

Thanks for the suggestion, I've tried all the different resolutions and picture qualities and still no zoom... Pretty annoying!

The only solution I found was to download an alternative camera app. 'Camera ZOOM FX' just about does the job.. but I seem to end up cropping the picture I've taken with the standard camera app mostly.

To zoom using camera u must put two thumbs on the screen and moove phone forward or backward for zoom in and zoom out - just like the feature in browser. To see a demo u can go to settings - motion and watch the tutorials

I tried it, but no luck. I dont really need the zoom anyway, I only like it on camera with a fysical zoom.
