Where is the function button on the camera

Turn the mode dial to the movie position and then turn the control dial to select the movie mode. Full details are in the "Movie Shooting" section of the manual (page 102 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download it and more here.

I want to make a video but I'm not sure what buttons to press or how to do it.


For capturing movies in the Camera, turn the mode dial of the Camera to the Movie position. Click here to open the handbook Manual of the Camera. Refer to page # 18 of the manual for the information on selecting the movie mode for shooting movies using the mode dial.

Cyber shot dsc-w1 stuck in movie mode

When you rotate the mode dial, does camera change the mode? Maybe it switches only between video and twilight modes and when you set the dial to, for example, Auto mode, it's actually in Video mode? I have seen problems like this before with these cameras, mode dial had to be changed. If so, you should contact your local Sony service center and ask the price. If they ask too much, you can contact me at and I can give you a better price.

Hope this helps!

This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for future recording.

Cannot Record Videos

I would try changing the memorised info that you put into your My1 settings and see if that helps. I just got my V700 today and the first thing I did was put my preferences into My1. I don't really know why your camera is transferring this to your video setting but try removing your presettings in My1.

A345 stuck in movie mode

you need to open the camera caseing a small amount. As you put the case back make sure the switch is in the movie position so it will engage the switch inside on the circuit board. Looks like the switch has been knocked off the control inside.If you have been moveing the switch back and forward you may have broken it.

Lens is not opening in the movie mode,unable to record movie also.

normally there are two possible causes for the problem, 1) the connectors of the rotary switch are dirty or not making proper contact. 2) the cable from the rotary switch is damaged. In both the cases you have to get the swith changed.

Noise during video recording

Turn off Continuous AF (auto focus) to prevent recording camera noise during video capture. When you turn off Continuous AF, you may notice a narrower area of focus or depth of field, especially if you zoomed to a telephoto position before recording. Turn the Mode dial to Video, then press the Menu button. Highlight the Continuous AF menu, then press the OK button. Highlight Off, then press the OK button. (On is the default.) Press the Menu button to turn off the menu screen. This setting remains until you change it, change the Mode dial, or turn off the camera.
