Your camera is not broken. That's by design. Canon cameras do not allow optical zoom use while in movie mode. Canon claims that using the optical zoom in movie mode would cause excessive noise in the movie. However, you can use digital zoom in movie mode. You'll need to go into the menus (press the menu button) and turn digital zoom "on" if it's currently off.

Buying a Camara


Hey Dussan,
Three camera's that might work for you are the Nikon P80, Panasonic DMC-FZ50K, and the Sony DSC-H50. All three of theses camera's have a 12x optical zoom and up, they are all 9 mega pixel and up, they all have movie mode, they all use lithium-ion batteries, and they are all around the same price as the Canon. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
