I am using Nokia Lumia 520. There is no zooming option available while recording video. Is there any windows app supports zoom?

  • Have you tried pinch to zoom while a) taking a picture and b) taking video - it should work on all Windows Phone 8 devices Jul 16 '13 at 18:10
  • @Neil - Yeah. I tried. While taking pictures, zoom is working. While recording video, we can't zoom in/out & we can't pause the recording in between. We need to zoom before starting recording. It's pathetic.

As you have discovered, this is not possible at this time- not even with an app. Also, Windows Phone is not the only OS that doesn't support this. iOS has added this feature only in the upcoming iOS 7.

The best you can do at this time is to hope that the next version of Windows Phone (8.1) has this feature.

In the meanwhile, do upvote these suggestions on the official Windows Phone User Voice site:

  • Karan, Thanks for the info. I will surely do this.
