    I am considering replacing my Olympus TG4.
    The GoPro Hero 7 Black seems good. The 4K 60P is attractive. Can this camera double as a dash cam? My needs are a small camera, pocket and always with me. I have had trouble with movable zoom lenses before, between dirt in my pockets and dust on the trail, they always jammed. Price is not an issue.

    My son has a Go Pro; indestructible, goes anywhere, very simple to use. Probably could serve as a dash-cam using a high capacity storage card.

    I was almost sold until I found you can't interactively zoom.

    Sony and Olympus offer 'action' cameras with zoom capability.
