Re: Sound with Filming

Sorry, the ViviCam 5385 does not record sound in video mode. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on the camera.

I know this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

How can I use zoom when I am filming with my Olympus sp800z ?

Turn off the sound recording. The camera will not let you use the optical zoom while recording sound so as not to record the sound of the lens zooming. See page 16 of this manual.

When filming or not the picture becomes blurred for a few seconds every few minutes. Please can you help.

It sounds like it's simply auto-focusing. When you're filming and the camera auto-focus sensor detects a new focus object, it will attempt to refocus on the new object. In lower light situations, this may take longer for the sensor to read the new object. The only way to resolve this is to turn auto-focus off (if your camera allows it). If your subject area remains in the same plane of focus, you shouldn't have any focus issues. If it changes, however, you will have to manually refocus to the new plane, just as you would with a manual camera.

Hope this helps!

Does the Vivitar ViviCam 3330 record the sound when filming? None of my videos appear to have any.

No, the ViviCam 3330 does not record any sound. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on this camera.

I still have no soun when i wach it through the comp help!

There is a microphone, but no speaker on the camera.

You could be blocking the microphone with your finger when filming.
The sound could be turned off/down on the computer.
Your computer software viewing programe might not be supporting sound.

If still in warranty and the problem still occures.
Please contact KODAK in order to arrange a repair:

No sound when filming a video

Hi there. Sound may be set to mute in your digicam. If you could go to menu or options (i think that is the small button below) then select settings. See volume and set to high..

Whenever I'm filming with my olympus fe-170 camera, I don't get any sound on playback.What am I doing wrong?

Unfortunately nothing. The camera does not have the ability to play back any sound during movie recording as it does not have any way to capture audio. The camera was not designed with this type of functionality.

Iv done abit off filming,but there no sound?

The 5010 is designed primarily as a still camera, with some video capabilities grafted on. As such it records images not sounds. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on the camera.

Firstly with some thick cloth around it and with it switched on, give it a good bash with a rubber handled pair of pliers or something (looking from behind) on the right hand side corner near the mics.

the iris gets oil/grease from the zoom on it which makes the iris stick,

if your lucky a hard slap will free it but if not it will merely change its position and make the picture brighter or dimmer

Changing the Zoom while recording

You can zoom while filming; but I haven't experimented with the lens setting (landscape, portrait, macro) and the zoom to see the effect.
