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.

Hi Ved,

You will find that many Compact Digital Camera (especially older series such as your camera) can't zoom while recording a video.
In most cases you may be able to zoom in or out before recording but not while recording.

I've had the same thing on all my Pentax Compact cameras.
I have switched to Olympus for my latest one and I can zoom while recording videos.

I checked the instruction manual for your camera and they barely mention the video functionality so I don't think you can do much with it when filming.

SOURCE: 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.

Why does the zoom lock up when I'm recording video?


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

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 8mm Analog... 2 Problems, maybe more unknown at this time:


This does require disassembly to remedy the problem. There are various possible fixes. The most prevelant I have seen is cold solder connections of the board connector for the fpc cable from the top operation switch block ass'y. All you need is someone who can handle this task, like a professional. The controls that you are experiencing problems with are all linked with one cable and connector. One bad solder joint can cause serveral operation faults. Good Luck, magic seadog

My Canon HF100 camcorder recently started to zoom or creep by itself. It really makes it difficult to record special moments in life cause you never know if it will zoom in by itself ruining the moment. ...


The problem is indeed athe zoom rocker switch and will require major disassembly to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively but it's not really a user serviceable problem.

Below is a link to a repair facility which should be able to help you.

Video zoom


Hi.
On many smaller/cheaper cameras, you must choose the zoom factor before recording and you can't change it during the recording.
