was disappointed that the zoom control is not adjustable speed.
Zoom controls are on-off. Not good when you need that smooth zoom action. This feature seems to be lacking in most remote devices.
Only on/off and record buttons work properly. All of the other buttons (zoom, photo, focus, and play/scan) cause the camera to pause for several seconds. It is not very useful for action video.
