When are the Zoom and Low Light options enabled?

[ New ]

On my Hero8 Black, I turn on the camera and it comes up in video mode.  There is a zoom icon in the lower right, but is greyed out, and when I tap it it says "Unavailable".  Under what circumstances can I actually use Zoom with this camera?

 

Similarly, when I hold my finger over the disabled button, a slider with a list of options in it comes up.  One of those options is Low Light.  Like Zoom, it comes up as "Unavailable".  Again, under what circumstances can I actually use the Low Light option?

 

Thanks in advance,

Hello, @daltxcoltsfan. On the HERO8 Black, the Zoom option is only available for resolutions 2.7K and lower.  Your camera must be shooting at 60fps in order for the Low Light option to appear.
