1- I doubt any firmware upgrade would offer that feature. I don't even now if you can upgrade the firmware on S602 (except by sending it to Fuji)
2- The more far you are, the more low the sound of target source will be and the more interferences you can have. So the sound will be less clear with the distance, not with the zoom on.
For the few times I used the video functionality, the sound is really great in normal situations (at home or outdoor), but really bad in noisy restaurants or bars.

You can't expect much from an electret omni mic planted in the cam body. Should be about as good as a mobile phone. I.e o.k close to, no shaped polar response so no selectivity, probably has auto level enabled and picks up everything it can! Treat it like a dictaphone.
