Record Screens & Menus
Please excuse the quality of the screen shots, the Zi8 does not output video in record mode.
Only the battery level, shooting mode and storage media being used (internal or SD/SDHC card) for saving image/movie files is shown on the LCD screen during REC mode.
Pressing the camera button on the back brings up the MODE selection screen. Here it tells you how many images or how much recording time you have left with each of the REC modes.
Although the Zi8 does not feature an optical zoom, it does have a digital zoom. The only problem with this is it will lower your image or movie quality, so only use it if absolutely necessary.
