Because it's supposed to. From page 46 of this manual: "Once movie recording begins, optical zoom cannot be adjusted."

My canon 5x optical zoom 16.0 is telling me Memory card locked


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

No zoom facility in video recording


That is correct. You can zoom in and out before starting the movie, but you cannot zoom while recording. See page 18 of the Cyber-shot handbook.

My DSC-W55 can not zoom when i recording a video, how can i fix it?


You can't. The DSC-W55 does not allow zooming while recording a video. See the second bulleted item under "Using the zoom" on page 15 of the manual.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the camera is.

Zoom H1 says


What format are you recording in? Recording in the standard resolution WAV format will only give you about 3 hours in total on the 2GB SD card that comes with the H1, whereas lower resolution WAV recording or MP3 recording will give you more hours, more than 34 hours form MP3 at 128kbps.

Can I zoom when recording on the olympus sp 800


Zooming when recording video on the Olympus SP-800uz is only possible when the sound is set to off. Set the zoom to the setting you want before recording, after that start recording.

Zooming problem


I have the same problem. I have no fix in rec mode but if it happens during playback; press menu and select the zoom options. You don't have to pick any but just keep the menu displayed on the screen. I do this while recording the tape to my DVD recorder and it solves the locked zoom problem. The menu display does not get recorded.
This zoom problem is a big pain. We should start a class action suit against Canon. It started within a year of ownership with mine. I bought a Panasonic recently and haven't looked back.
Panasonic doesn't have the slick Canon marketing/packaging but it is a much better machine.

3000z Zoom in Movies


Lack of zoom during video recording is a "documented feature" of the 3000z. See page 3-2 in the User's Guide: "...you can't change the zoom setting once you start recording."
