So far I'm really digging my ZS7 but the zoom speed is excruciatingly slow. I honestly do not mind the fact that it would translate into more motor noise because for what I use the camera for (live music performance) the audio capture for the video is coming from room condenser mic's.
camera audio capture is muted in video editing.
So is there a way to manually override this? Or is there a custom firmware flash out there that can change this or am I just outta luck here?
Also, is there a manual focus on video mode? if the lights on stage stay fully lit, it keeps it's focus but once the lights start flashing, the focus has a seizure and goes nuts.
