Hi folks,

I've just upgraded my DJI Go 4 for Android, then my firmware to 0700, without any problem. Then I wanted to try this famous zoom feature that someone explained in another thread, so I switched my video settings to 2.7k instead of 4K, and changed my 5d button settings (because I prefer zooming with up and down, rather than left and right).

Anyway, when I push the button up or down, all I have is a beep sound.

No zoom in, no zoom out. I tried with recording on and off. Am I missing something ? ( 2.7K / MP4 / D-Cinematic / +1-0-0 )

Thanks !

You have to keep pushing up. Each time you push the d button up it zooms by .1
Ie: 1.1....1.2....1.3..etc until it is up to 2.0

2.7K, 30fps and MOV zoom works for me on IOS GO 4.0.8 and .700 firmware....maybe it's an Android thing......gave up on the Android GO4 app sometime ago.

The specifications state zooming is only available in 1080p.  They image sensor cannot handle zoom in 1440p without loss of quality, but it can with 1080p.

Maybe it is a bug that iOS is allowing you to do it as I can find no documentation that it is supposed to.

I can definitely zoom when using 2.7K/30fps, no idea if it loses quality. Only used it a few times, but I always film in 2.7K. Strange that the OP can't zoom when using 2.7K (I haven't re-assigned the 5D buttons), but I suspect it's an IOS vs Android thing. I can't test with Android.

I had zoom function also until the update this morning 05/26.  No more no matter what settings my camera has.  If it was taken away for a purpose, like to know why.  If a mistake, restore it please.

The frame rate (24/25 vs 24/30) is due to the PAL/NTSC camera setting, you can get 2.7K @ 30fps if you switch to NTSC. Looks like the zoom issue is the recent Android GO4 update, I'm on IOS and the update hasn't been released yet, another reason not to update yet!

Nope. It works on my android samsung Note 5.  Whilst in 2.7 works great. But, I use pal settings.

Oh? Well that's just great isnt it.  I hope they fix that. I'm still using the previous go4 app so apparently that's why zoom is working for me.  Can anyone confirm that zoom still works in 1080 with the updated app?
