    If they can fit that in a phone I'd like to see upgrades to the phantom camera/video.

    Not even the iPhone can zoom. Unless you are talking about digital zoom which is :eek:

    if you are looking for zoom, you only need to wait 7 hours more for the new Inspire announcement...

    To get the same zoom effect as an iphone, shoot it in 4k then use premiere to digitally zoom in post...same effect ;)

    I think DJI Has a little more room to work with vs a phone. Just don't like the idea a cell phone has the same (or better) quality as my phantom.

    Well, it's not terribly fair to compare until your iPhone can fly around on its own... o_O

    Zoom takes a lens and a lens is heavy especially considering the mechanicals required to zoom.

    If you want a zooming drone buy a Predator.

    The p3 has a hidden zoom secret, don't tell everyone: Right stick up = zoom in, Right stick down = zoom out. Let's keep that just between ourselves ;)

    If you have your camera pointed at the ground you can do a "Crazy Super Cool" fast zoom by holding both sticks down and in.

    Maybe it's just me coming from a DSLR, I expect the same quality. Which I know is not going to happen.

    There's a kickstarter for a 4k camera that's smaller than a go pro and allows interchangable lenses. Can't remember the name of it. Not the same thing but pretty interesting.

    This is all I'm getting at. I understand phones don't fly but the P3's are geared towards photography. I think once I get some filters and slow down my shutter speed I won't be as disappointed.
