Re: Optical zoom in movies? I think it does...

I did indeed assume that the photographer was Lars. If not, my apologies.

My point, and indeed it is an assumption, is that optical zoom during video moves the lens, whereas digital zoom should not.

Fair enough. But to my knowledge nobody has posted anything about the G11 movie mode that has first hand experience.

My assertion that optical zoom is available is based on the G11 manual, which states in the 'Shooting Movies' chapter on page 32:
"You can also zoom in and out with the zoom lever during shooting"

They don't specifically tell you that it's optical zoom, but I think it it probably is because it also says that "Operational sounds will be recorded in the movie" and this is likely to be the zoom or AF motor noise.
