    Is there a zoom on the droid? I have tried to find this over the past few months (I don't take lots of pictures), but wanted a close up shot?

    My curve had this feature. I realize it is probably just pixel replication, but would be nice.

    Yup. Just tap the screen in camera mode and it will bring up the (-) and (+). You can use those to zoom in/out. You can also double tap to zoom all the way in.
    No zoom with video though.

    I'd mock you except that it took me a while to figure it out too.:D

    This forum is cool! I had the same question today. I keep looking for a button to push like in the good old days of new cell phones and foreget the functions of just touching the screen. Thanks!

    Me too, a great big duh factor for me! Thanks. I was out early this morning taking pics of the snow, doesn't happen in Atlanta that often, and couldn't find a zoom button either. :eek:

    You can also use the track ball for zooming which is handy!
