  1. After latest update for my Samsung Galaxy Slll, it is impossible to use the zoom for taking fotos. I only get the message that zoom does'nt work in this modus. (It worked very well before updating.). Zoom in videomodus workes as before, and there is no problems with the sound. I can not find any settings that can help me with this problem.

    1. Hi Christina Ă˜streng,
      Thanks for coming.
      Did you mean to take photos using the Volume key (which is usually use by the user to zoom in the Camera app)? If so, have you ever tried to assign the Volume key as the Camera key? This will allow you to take a picture using the Volume up key or the Volume down key. If you don't know how to do so, please feel free to visit our post about it here:
      Hope this helps :)
