My Mavic Air 2 running Ver. 1.5.10 on the DJI Fly App and the Firmware Ver. 1.01.0720 and I still
Can not find the Video Zoom functions. My Controller is the Original Grey device with the "Tripod" "Normal" "Sport" functions
for selections. Is there anyone running these Same Versions of the DJI Fly App and the Controller able to Zoom during Video filming
in Flight. The Mini 2 allows the FN button and the Wheel to zoom.
I wanted to find out if I'm missing something. I have owned this Mavic Air for 2 years now, purchased from DJI.

First of all the zoom function does not work in 4K video mode. When in 1080 or 2.7K video mode the zoom control is right next to the REC button on the display device. I don't use any buttons on the gray controller for the zoom function.

See 2:11 in the video linked above. 2x digital zoom is supported in 4K at 30fps, but not in HDR.

It is activated by either pinching out on the screen, or using the Fn key with the scroll wheel, or by pressing and holding the onscreen 1x and dragging it up.

I just pinch or spread my two fingers on the screen to zoom in and out

Yes I saw a Post that said something similar, but the Point is....Others that are flying
the same Software and Firmware release as I'm flying,,,,state that the Zoom feature is
Automatic with the use of the Gimbal Wheel on the Mavic Air 2. Thats what I'm trying to find
out as to why its not on my Controller and Drone.

You probably figured it out by now but hold the function button down while turning the wheel for the zoom feature.

Yes.....that feature Used to work for Zoom.... and now it does not, I tried it again and again...no go.
A reply from another user said "he just pinches it open for zoom" its supposed to work as You described
it did once and now NO GO. I checked the Firmware on the RC and the Air 2 and they match the versions
of Software that this other guy Said that it works with the Wheel and that little button.
Oh Well ....Im tired of chasing the issue.. Thank for your reply.....Ron in Maine....Winters in Tucson....East Side.
