Question about Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera
Just read this post and had to comment. . . wish I had followed the suggestion to exchange the camera, but only realized by reading this post (almost two years after buying my camera) that the FE-210 does NOT record sound! I agree with one of the comments -- how stupid to even offer something for sale that records video without sound! Who would ever even want that?! The reason I am so furious is that I went to Ritz so I could get advice on what camera to buy, rather than just "take a chance" on my own. I specifically told the guy that I was buying my first-ever digital camera because I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view a space shuttle launch from the VIP stands. I told him I was definitley no camera expert --so I wanted a camera that I would be able to use easily take pictures and also let me switch to "movie mode" so that I could record the launch in order to be able to record what I personally was seeing and hearing from my vantage point so I could always remember it. Well, needless to say, I ended up with NO sound . . . and, until now, had always thought I'd just somehow not pushed the right button or something! I can't believe that I finally decided to "go digital" for the first time for such an important event -- and had an "expert" sell me this model that does not record sound! (And I still can't believe anyone would even make a "silent" movie mode! I just wish that at least the "quick start-up" manual or the darn box had "warned" that movie mode is silent.) In any case, I am very grateful for your website so that I can quit kicking myself and fussing with the camera thinking I can "do something" to retrieve the amazing sound of lift-off. (And there is at least a little comfort in knowing I am not the only person who was shocked to find out that she bought a camera with no sound.) Thanks.
