    Hey,

    Sorry if this has been covered already.

    I noticed though that when taking a pic now with iOS 5, I can't zoom in when tapping the bottom of the screen.

    Is this a glitch? Do I need to reconfigure something?

    Or did apple drop this option with the release of ios 5? If they did I won't be terribly disappointed, as the additional camera options would more than make up for it. That being said, a little zoom is sometimes nice.

    Insight?

    Looks like you now have to pinch to bring the old zoom slider.

    Personally, I do not like this new 'feature' Inhibits one handed operation.

    Yup, that's correct.

    I share the same sentiment.

    yeah, i dont get people on cell phones who think 'zooming' does anything when cropping after will give better results or is just as good...
    unless the iphone has real zoom.. no right?

    Optical zoom would be great but it would probably be hard to put into it.
