    Two issues, if anyone has resolution..

    1. Settings revert back to default if camera is not kept "active" on screen. Once it goes to screen saver or otherwise need to open camera, default settings are there. How can I maintain prof. settings for entire session? (I was recently traveling in a famous and beautiful "canyon" where I got help in settings for nice shots given the light situation, but had to keep resetting)

    2. While in professional mode, I was unable to zoom like I can with auto mode.

    Are you using the stock camera app. ? The settings I've put into my camera app haven't changed since I set it up.

    I tested the camera at best buy in pro mode and I was able to zoom. You just need to choose ur pro settings (iso, wb, whatever) and then press anywhere on the screen outside of those toggles and you have focus control again by swiping up/down on the screen.

    Manual focus is also an option in pro mode

    What pro mode are you talking about? I do not see that as an option.

    When you select the camera in the app a menu pops up.

    I just figured out my error. You have to set the pro settings and then close the UI using the "X" on the upper left of the screen. The pro settings stay and you can then zoom. (wish I had tested this before my trip!!)
