    If you're asking if the camera can zoom, I'm pretty sure it can't, but what you can do is take a normal picture, then crop it to the size you want. Basically the same, no?

    More importantly the "zooming", is there a way to focus the camera? I see theres not touch to focus...

    I miss being able to zoom as well so I'm looking into camera apps in the market

    edit- zoom is not supported even with apps :(

    Hold down the button to shoot and it will auto zoom.

    Do you mean auto focus?

    Digital zooms are crap anyways... Cropping would give you a better end product.

    Zoom works on the Vignette app.

    Its not a real zoom though, its just cropping. When the subject in the viewfinder is so tiny its hard to tell what I'm really taking a pic of. I want a zoom that magnifies what I'm aiming at on the screen for taking pics at a distance (like my son's soccer games).
