ui gripe blog: not preserving zoom across modes in iphone's photo app

All too common thing for me: see a possible candidate for my "One Second Everyday" project, fire up the camera app, zoom-in, notice I'm on photo, switch to video-- but the zoom resets and I have to zoom-in again. 

A more mature UI would recognize "just zoomed in/out, then switched modes" as a request to say "show me this same shot but in the different mode". There are some technical gotchas across modes but still.

Sometimes I think I'm the only person in the world who cares about UX ;-)
