How do I turn this auto zoom feature off?
So, I took my Canon SX40 out for the first time today to film an abandoned jail.
Maybe someone can tell me how to turn this off.. for example I want to shoot something.. let's say I was standing in New Jersey, looking across the water at Pennsylvania, which I was. I zoomed in to zoom in on the buildings I wanted in my shot.. only problem the camera zooms in further thinking I wanted to zoom in on something else. So, then I try to zoom out just a little to get all the buildings in the shot and it zooms all the way out.
Same thing happened when I was shooting closer items when I was at the jail.
First and most obvious place to look would be in the manual.
