How comes video camera's can zoom in that much?
6 months ago

I was wondering how it is able for a video camera to zoom in that much, i was watching the wold cup on tv today, and i saw they could zoom in on a players face standing in the middle of the pitch, if i want to do that, i need to have a 1200mm lens i think.

I tested to shoot video with my still camera, but nope, it did not let me in zooming closer. so, what is it that let the camera zoom in that tight?

greets
