Optical Zoom in Video Mode
May 12, 2007

Hi there,

I have an 800IS and I love the video mode with IS, it's big fun. I just hate that I can't zoom or focus during capture.

Is there or will there ever be a compact Canon with optical zoom while in video mode? Is there any compact of any brand that allows this?

If not, is it technically impossible or is it a marketing decision to omit this feature. No of course it' technically possible. Maybe there's a hack that makes it possible?

Any comment appreciated.
