It’s possible to take still photographs while recording a video. While filming, tap the smaller white button on the toolbar. These images will then be saved to the Photos app.

Video zoom

It’s also possible to zoom in while filming. Before or during recording, pinch outwards on the screen to zoom in. Zoom out again by pinching your fingers together on the screen. Note that extreme close-ups will cause the video to look grainy when played back later.
