Default HS-10 Zoom and LCD viwer related problem

I'm not sure if you guys notice a problem when you are trying to zoom in and zoom out during capturing, the view finder or the LCD viwer will jump, it seem the cam are trying to get back to the right focus, but with little difficulty. Anyone have this problem? Or to make sure my words above are clear, please try to do the following see if you got the same issue.

1. From normal, zoom immediate to 30x
2. zoom back to normal range and look at the LCD, the screen will jump.

Please let me know if anyon got the same issue, if not I'm going to return my cam (although i love this cam sososo much)

Thanks!

Nope. I don't get that.

I'm not familair with the HS10 but what you're describing sounds like what is a feature on their S200EXR camera. It zooms the focus zone in the viewfinder to assits in manual focusing. It's called Focus Check. So maybe the HS10 has this as well and you've got it turned on? I find it annoying and not particularly helpful since a zoom of a crappy viewfinder image just ends up that much crappier. I just check the HS10 manual and yes ... it has that same feature.

Yes, it' a serious problem. I recognise it, and it stood between me and a good photo like almost every time.. But then again, maybe I just shouldn't try photographing ufo's flying by at warp 3, where I have to zoom out quickly every time before I take the shot. I'm considering returing mine too; I'm totally convinced it hasn't got anything to do with the image stabilizer which can be turned to mode 2
