Re: fe-170 olympus sound

From the specs i've read on this camera, it does not record sound in video clips taken.

The FE180 and FE190 do record sound.

Sorry for the bad news.

I have the Olympus x-42 and had the same problem. My camera has a microphone but no speakers so i can only hear the videos which i have recorded on the camera on my computer. If your camera is the same make as mine, maybe we had the same problem?

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.
