How to get the hum out of the sound on this camera

What make and model camera? Many cameras only have a tiny microphone on the camera body, which picks up the sound of the camera. The only way to get really clean sound is to use a separate audio recording system, using a device designed from the beginning to capture sound. Keep in mind that the camera is primarily designed to capture images. Sound recording is simply a side effect for many cameras.

Is there a volume control for the canon powershot sd 1200 IS microphone? The speaker is working perfectly. Old video recordings play back beautifully, but new recordings play back very softly. Playback...

As far as I know there is no way to adjust the microphone's sensitivity on this model. Make sure you are recording in a relatively quiet environment as these cameras' microphones tend to pick up everything and can generate a lot of background noise in your recordings. If you still feel like you need to shout into the mic to hear anything then you should look into getting your camera service by an authorized Canon service center. Hope this helps!

1st check you video in the computer.
If you hear a sound, i think your problem in your internal speaker or in the motherboard.It' simple if the problem in the speaker.Just change it.But if the motherboard is trouble, i can't help you.Maybe one resistor is dead/not properly work.
If you don't hear sound. May be you have a mix problem.Change it.
I warning u, be carefull dissambling the camera. Before you do that, you must have sparepart. If you don't, you can bring it to service.

Unfortunately this camera was not designed to record sound during movie recording. The camera was not designed with any audio input or output speakers.

Sound on Video?

Hey Alymac,
Digital still cameras are not designed to record high quality audio. The mic used to record the audio is probably OK for normal audio situations, but not for difficult recording situations like concerts. To get a good quality video that has good quality audio I would invest in a high quality digital camcorder. What your camera was picking up is all the atmospheric noise that is going on around you. You probably didn't notice it because a concert is usually a loud environment. To get a good quality recording of a concert you would need a mic that focuses where it picks up its audio from instead of from all sounds surrounding you.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

I just bought this Chameleon camera. When you use the video recorder, is it supposed to record SOUND ( AVI file ). There is something on the LCD panal on the back that has a sound/silent display. I don't...

Went on your wedsite & read the owners manual YOU have! The CAMERA doesn't have sound input or recording capabilities - it's only a CAMERA! A very GOOD camera - but how do you access the USB port on it without a dam screwdriver or pick! Getting the little plastic flap open is a PAIN! Guess they should change the file name extension to _VI. It has no AUDIO! But as a camera, it's GREAT! Thanks!

The microphone on most of these slip cameras are very small and it is possible your finger or hand was over it. And to be honest since this microphone is so small the quality is not going to be very good at all. I don't know if there really is a solution to this outside of buying a high end camera if sound quality is so important.
