I am needing help changing my maps camera settings to have it zoomed out as the basic start camera.

Then i am needing help setting a player to be able to choose where they want the camera to be so -Zoom in -Zoom out Commands how do i do this in the triggers?

You'll want to modify camera data in the Data module, which is found under Data > Edit Advanced Data > Cameras.

You can either override the Default Camera values, or you can create a new camera object, then set that as the active camera data using the Set Camera Data trigger action.

In the camera data, you can modify the Zoom Levels field to change the zoom distance for the various zoom levels. You can also change the default zoom level using the Zoom Default field.

I changed settings of the Default Camera in Data Editor but it doesn't change anything.

I also use a trigger to smooth the camera initialization.

Player Group - Pick each player in (Active Players) and do (Actions)
Actions
Camera - Zoom camera for player (Picked player) at (Start location of player (Picked player)) from ((Real(Default Camera Distance)) + 8.0) to Default Camera Distance over 1.5 seconds

I don't think this trigger as anything to do with the Default Camera Distance not setting up correctly.
