    Default Camera won't zoom since update

    Is anyone else having problems with camera not zooming? It has only started happening after the latest update. It says it can't zoom in its current mode. It will zoom when put on video but not on camera.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Are you talking about un-pinch to zoom? Or was there a different way that you got the camera to zoom?

    Superduperliscious, I use pinch to zoom and my zoon is working okay.

    Did you receive notice of a new update yesterday or today?

    Ahhh. I just tried to zoom with pinch to screen and it works. Yay. I was doing it the old way with the button on side of phone.

    I got notification of update about 4 days ago.

    Ah, you were using the Volume rockers - thanks for the clarification.

    I have got the same problem. My camera doesn´t get zoom anymore. I got a message "Cammot zoom in or out in this mode". What have I to do?

    Sorry. I am not a English speaker, so, I don´t know what means "with pinch"; What does it mean? Thanks

    Place two fingers (the thumb and forefinger work best) on the screen while in the Camera view, and move the two towards each other while keeping them in contact with the screen. Another word for it would be to squeeze them together. This will cause the picture to zoom in (you'll see a zoom factor on the screen while you do this.You can also use the Volume rocker to zoom in and out.

    My problem turned out to be the fact that I had changed my home page display to Easy Mode. Zoom does not work in this mode. You must go back to Standard Mode on your home page display

    Oops. Meant to say HOME SCREEN MODE (not home page display) this can be found in the settings app

    Strange - I just changed to 'Starter mode' (that's what it's called on the 4.3 firmware), opened the Camera app and was able to use the Volume rocker to zoom.

    Thank you so much....problem solved.
    Never knew that using the Easy mode can disable the camera Zoom function .
    I was going to do a Reset but wasn't sure if how much impt.info would be lost.

    the only way to fix this problem is to go to settings > home screen > change home screen mode from Easy Mode to Standard Mode and the zoom will work else dont try it !

    Clarification: Here are the steps I took to allow my camera to zoom in the "Easy Mode" option. This will also give you all the features that come with the camera:
    - Select "Easy Settings" (not Easy Mode)
    -----> Select "More Settings"
    ------------> Select the "Device" tab
    -----------------> Scroll down to "Easy Mode" and select it
    Scroll down and under "Easy Applications section" and UNCHECK the camera icon and check the other icons you want to appear in the Easy Mode functionality
    Scroll back to top, ensure Easy Mode is highlighted and press the "DONE" tab

    I rebooted my phone so I don't know if that was needed or not. Now my camera allows me to zoom with the "Ease Mode" functionality.

    My Easy Mode item is set to Standard, and I still get the message that I can't zoom. I'm using a Galaxy S5.
