You are correct here. There is a setting in the menu which locks the zoom when shooting video, but remember that the focus is still unaffected.

My advice to the focus nuisance is to zoom in as far as it will go and then zoom out as you begin shooting the video.

My friend has this camera and I have the Elph 300 HS....the buttons on the 100 are considerably smaller and yes, I found the left side of the circle button very hard to press as well.  I did however, love the screen size on the 100 vs. the 2.7 screen on the 300.  The screen on the 100 is so much nicer.  Also, the 300 seems to just zoom slightly more.  I'm wondering if I made the right choice with the 300.  Not sure that small extra zoom was worth it ( plus a smaller screen).

I found this circle button very hard to press (especially on the left side). Does anyone have the same problem?

@ Snapshot. Not sure if you realize this but some of the reviews say that you can't use the zoom feature while taking videos with the Elph 100 HS. That is not corrrect. I purchased the Elph 100 HS and I WAS able to zoom while in video mode.

Good catch, thanks, we'll fix that up.

Typo in the above specs: 640 x 1080 @ 120fps, should be 640 x 480 @ 120fps
