    Would I be right in thinking that when you are using the video camera you can't use the zoom function? I pressed every button and touched the screen a few times but nothing did it, had to stop filming, zoom in and start again.

    Haven't tried it myself but I wouldn't be surprised. Most cameras that allow you to also shoot video don't allow you to use the zoom while shooting video. You have to stop recording first.

    I didn't know you could zoom in then shoot video. Ive been running with no zoom. Can confirm, there seems to be no way to zoom in whilst recording.

    zoom... no, dont think so, but you can touch the screen to select the point you want it to focus on, which is pretty cool.
