Can cannon digital cameras zoom in and out when they are taking video?

Asked by Zone36 (408 points ) December 25th, 2009

I am talking about the kind from the Power shot series. Example SD780 and or SD500. NOT video cameras. Just regular cameras that have video capabilities.

When I start taking video the camera lens cannot zoom in and out. But when I stop taking video I can adjust the zoom and then take video again.

Is that normal?

I guess I’ll clarify some more. The ultra portable kind. Elph series.

The SD780 does. I have one and I’ve used the function before. Don’t know about the others, but on Amazon, people might mention it in the reviews.
