Optio WG-2 Focusing in Movie Mode

Can't seem to find a way to get the camera to focus while shooting videos when I use the zoom. It will focus if I set the zoom where I want it before I start shooting the video and leave the zoom there while shooting, but it will not focus if I operate the zoom button while shooting.

If I remember correctly, you don't get optical zoom in movie mode, which also means you can't re-focus. Not 100% sure on that, though!

You can set the optical zoom and focus as you like before starting a video, but once the video is rolling, the only buttons that have any affect are the power, shutter, and OK. Clicking the OK button changes the display.
