i have a powershot 620a . before i bought it i read all the reviews etc and thought it was a good buy. When i got it and started to take indoor photos at night with flash i seemed to come across a big problem.

you cant zoom in, as soon as you start to zoom the the anti blur light flashes away, im talking just one click on the zoom and the lights on and you will get a slightly blurd photo if you take the shot.

Question, what good is a camera if you cant use the zoom at night with flash?

with all the hundreds of review i read no one mentioned this.

all in all very dissapointed with camera!

You'll probably get more responses to the post in the Small Camera Forum as we EOS DSLR users don't really have this issue. :)

Have you actually tried taking the shot anyway? It shouldn't blur with the flash at night.

I have an A640 which is pretty much the same thing. I have full control of the flash in any setting. Strength of the flash, on/off and all work with zoom. Never noticed any lights, I just adjust and press the shutter.
