Question about Logitech Webcam

1 Answer

Camera records loud background noise.

After recording a video, the playback has this loud background noise that I don't hear when recording. Also, when using applications like Skype and ooVoo the microphone has a "screaming" static.

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!

Instead of Skype it will be good to check the sound recorder or else reload the sound drivers of the PC once again.

I have a canon sd 1100 camera with video recording. It no longer records the sound with teh video and I don't know if I hit a button or if it just broke. any thoughts?


If you're not hearing anything on playback on the camera, try pressing the up-arrow during playback to increase the volume. If you're not hearing anything on playback on a computer (and neither the viewer nor the computer are on mute) then something is broken on the camera, causing it not to record audio.

Camera wont record sound


DSC-S930 does record sound and you can hear video clip sound by playback of Media Player in Computer.
This camera does not have inbuilt speaker for playback sound but it have inbuilt mic to record sound, transfer recorded movie clip in computer and play it with media player to get sound and picture.
Hope this info will help you.

Its most likely the microphone you use. Try buying a logitech webcam instead of the one you are using. I prefer the Logitech 9000.
