There's another iPhone camera trick that you might be interested in.

The press and hold on the shutter button to begin recording video.
Then simply drag your finger up or down the screen to zoom in or out respectively.
This means you can create ultra-smooth zooms with just one hand.
You can do this from the photo or video modes in the camera app.
