App that allows Digital Zoom in video mode for Iphone 4S

I've been searching the internet for the last day trying to find an app that will allow you to zoom in video mode. I've tried several but all of them are not suited for the 4S, they resize the image all the way down to 480p or 720p but no 1080p. Not having an optical zoom is of course expected, but not having the option to zoom in digitally is something I've never experienced before on a phone. Granted I'm a new iPhone user. Does anyone know of a recently updated or new app that can add zoom functionality to video recording mode?

So I guess thats a no Hopefully they'll come out with something someday. I'm coming from the Nokia N8 which not only had zoom in video mode but it had intelligent zoom where it could just crop in on the image sensor with out loosing quality. Much better than digital zoom. But I think that may have only been possible because it has a 12MP camera sensor. It would be amazing to see something like that on the 4S.

Try this app:


It also allows you to record upon launch of app and you can turn the light on and off while you're recording.

This was the first video zoom app :


If you need a Pro video camera app with lot more controls, consider MoviePro :
