Question about Fuji FinePix S700 Digital Camera
My Fuji Finepix S700 gives me two problems both relating to video recording:
1. The finished video recordings show text imprints at the top and bottom of the screen in a pale grey color. The top line reads: "PICVideo" and the bottom line "www.jpg.com". How did these messages get there and how can I remove them? I have not been able to find a menu option that lets me either add or remove such messages.
2. When recording video with sound, there is this clicking sound. What might cause that and how can I avoid it?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
As for the video goblins: Have you tried reformatting the memory card (in the camera)? It sounds like a built-in advertisement, though www.jpg.com redirects to a site called accusoft.com which DOES do imaging software. Was it a free card from some promotion, or perhaps an off-brand card? Have you tried a different memory card and got the same results? I have an S700 and use it almost everyday, with different capacity and brand cards with no problems. Was the camera purchased new from a reputable dealer and came with a warranty (NOT "open box")? If using a different memory card doesn't solve your problem, I would tend to think that someone "flashed" the firmware in the camera before you got it and added those lines at the top and bottom of your videos. Does it do it when you are just taking pictures and not videos? Have you tried a different viewer program on your computer? Some freebie software video programs put watermarks (your ghostly lines of text at the top and bottom) into the video until you purchase the unlocked version. Do these text lines appear when you are viewing the video in the camera also? As for the "clicking" sound, I am at a loss because there is nothing "motorized" like in the old days of film when a motor was actually transporting the film through a shutter gate and sprocket wheels. No mechanical movement in digital photography, except when using the optical zoom. Is your lens cap swinging in the breeze and striking the camera body? Is the clicking sound steady and constant, or intermittent?
