Microphone on Finepix f10 not working

I am having a problem with the microphone on my camera. I went to take a video of my son's Christmas Concert last week and to my dismay got a video but no sound. I was very dissapointed as he did such a great job. Anyways, I really like this camera but use the video option often but need to have the sound working. I tried doing several tests as I thought maybe when I was taking the video maybe I covered the microphone up and this did not work. It also is not the playback sound as I loaded an old video onto my camera and the playback sounds works. Is it possible that the memory card in causing this problem or even the battery?? Any help would be appreciated.

If the old video is playing the sound on the camera then it only proves that its speaker is working. Take another video and if there is no sound anymore then the mic is gone. Send it to Fuji for service.

Where is the microphone?


The microphone is located on the front of the camera, just behind the flash pop-up button. As far as I can tell there's no way to turn it off, but you can easily strip the audio out and replace it using video editing software on a computer.

That's probably the best way to eliminate wind noise as well. Remember that the camera is primarily an image recording device. Leave the sound recording to a device better suited for it, with a microphone shielded by a wind screen. Or record the sound in a studio. But then we're getting into real money, the way "real" filmmakers work.

The problem of my camera is that no sound appear when i record a video..how can i solve this problem,thanks.


Hi music_divina ,


This could be due to the fact that you have a digital camera without an inbuilt microphone in it.

Usually camcorders do have in built microphone so that you can record sound as well as video simultaneously, whereas digital cameras are meant for high quality pictures , rather than videos.

So if you want to record good quality video along with audio , I would recommend you to get a camcorder.

If you have a webcam and you want to record audio along with video , then you can easily do it by using the microphone which is to be inserted in the mic slot just besides the speaker's slot with a microphone icon near it.

All you need to do is select the video recording source as your webcam and audio recording source as your microphone and there you go , you have the recording with audio.

Hope this helps ...:)

FinePix jv100 camera audio records faintly and is scratchy on playback, and after downloading on various computers. Thanks for your help. John


Compact digital cameras such as this do not have high quality audio recording capabilities.
Given that the quality won't be very good to begin with, some things to watch out for when you are recording video:
  • Get as close to the subject as possible.
  • Make sure that your do not obstruct the microphone while you are recording.

From the Fuji web page for this camera, you can see that the microphone is on the lower-right of the front of the camera. Make sure that your hand, fingers, and clothing do not obstruct or come into contact with the microphone while you are recording video.

Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.

The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.

After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud
