    Hallo all,
    On page 9 pnt 7 is mentioned that the small joystick on the lower right side of the controller just below the screen gives the possibility to zoom in and out.Under the features of the camera I can't find any zoom capabilities.
    Can anybody confirm these possibilities?
    Thanks on beforehand.

    I'd guess that the zoom feature is only a digital one for the receiving phone/pad, there would be some kind of massive fanfare for a 'real' zoom..

    Yes, it is digital zoom, much like your phone. You can also pinch to zoom like you do in your camera app. I believe the zoom is only available in 1080p (because it's scaling down from 4K), but don't quote me on that.

    Most likely because the camera is 4K and you can't digital zoom in without resolution loss. When recording in 1080P you have quite a bit of headroom provided by the 4K sensor.
