Panasonic GH2 - digital zoom on/off during video?
Feb 1, 2012

I'm interested in purchasing the GH2 and am curious how the digital zoom feature works for video. Is it possible to turn digital zoom on/off during video, or is it a feature that can only be turned on/off while video is not being taken. My preference is to not use digital zoom during video, but if a circumstance arises where I immediately need it, it would be useful to simply press a button (or two) during video capture to turn it on and off. Is this possible on the GH2?

I aware of the problems associated with zooming during video, both optical and digital, but feel this option could come in handy in certain situations.

Thanks in advance!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2
