Yeah I can zoom it, that was fully zoomed out - It's currently shooting HD 720p - so the picture should still be pretty good. When I get home it is generally dark, so next time I get some light - I'll do a zoomed video. At that point, I should have figured the rest of the connection out so I don't have to worry about the phone jumping out. That video had a zip-tie around the phone and craddle to keep it from popping out. I think it is jumping out because there is so little room for the mount to flex to reduce the shock that the force is just pushing to phone out of place.
