Why does the video recordings now in black & white when previously was in colour

I had a similar problem with different camera and contacted the manufacturer. The tech told me this can happen when the batteries are low and the camera converts to B&W to save energy.

Or, the tech said, you may be shooting in light so low that the camera is converting to night vision which is always B&W. If your camera does not have a night vision feature, you might want to check the batteries. They also told me not to use cheap AA batteries.

Flash to record a video

You don't. As the name implies, the flash is used to provide a very brief burst of light, usable for taking still photographs but not for videos.

For videos you need a continuous source of light, such as video lights or movie lights. Be aware that such things consume much more power and usually require that they be plugged in.

No. The flash only puts out a very brief burst of light, usable for still photography but not for video. If you need more light for videos, you will need a video light.

Not sure how to record at night. is there a flash feature?

No, there is no flash for video. Most cameras have a pretty wide ability to record in lower light. There may be a menu option for low light, but you don't say what make and model it is.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do i get the light to work so i can record video at night

You didn't mention a make or model, but video cameras that take both still pics and videos do not have a MOVIE function light. The flash will work only with still photos. If you need to use such a camera for low-light videos you will need to purchase a separate movie light.

It is always in mute while shooting video

Find out if there are sound settings in video mode, if not then maybe mic on camera has something covering it and should be cleaned.

The flash unit is for still photos only. By design it can not be used when shooting video, because it can not stay lit (the flash fires from a stored electrical charge, and needs time to build up another charge).
