Increase video zoom to 8x HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Pictures\Camera\OEM\Video Profile Now in each of the folders: 1, 2, 3 there is a file called ZoomLevels. It contains a string value of 1 2 3 (with spaces between them). Add a 4 at the end of that string. Do this for each folder. When you open camera or video go to zoom in menu. You will now have 4 options: 1.0x, 2.0x, 4.0x, 8.0x. It seems 8.0x is the highest it can go. I've tried to add a fifth and a sixth; No go. This registry is from my Q9h with 6.1. Edit: I have previously stated that this will work for "still" and "video" camera. But "still" camera already has 8x zoom enabled. This hack enables 8x zoom in "video".
