Re: Filming with sound

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

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!

Canon camera shuts off while filming a movie

Wow! get 35 min. of uninterrupted movie on a point-and-shoot camera before it shuts off and you're complaining? No Hollywood director would ever shoot that much without stopping....even Alfred Hitchcock never went that far! After your camera shuts down, can you start it up again and resume another movie session?

I want to know how to pause my camera while filming

To pause the camera in the middle of filming, fully press the shutter at the top of the camera to the right, the recording will be paused. (i.e the shutter that you pressed while the camera is in recording mode, that enables recording while pressed fully. You press it, it will pause and when you press again, it starts recording). This is possible because the camera is already in recording mode.

How to video on my camera

twist the options wheel around to select the little icon that looks like a movie camera (directly across from the green camera). When you want to start filming, just click the shutter button (the one u press when ur taking pictures). The time recording will pop up on the display screen and it will show you how long you've been recording. To discontinue filming just hit the shutter button again.

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.
