Canon movie modes - forever non-zoomable?
Aug 25, 2006

Anybody know why other manufacturers' cameras have enabled the user to change the focal length while taking movies for many years now, but Canon's cameras disable the zoom button during movie taking, and?only allow the user to shoot a movie clip with a fixed zoom level?

Do the new models finally allow what seems such an obviously useful and possible function.
