Check the microphone on the camera. There's a possibility that when it was made, the assemblers forgot to connect it inside the camera - I've seen cases like that before. Did it have audio before? If it can use an external microphone, check that.

The problem of my camera is that no sound appear when i record a video..how can i solve this problem,thanks.


Hi music_divina ,


This could be due to the fact that you have a digital camera without an inbuilt microphone in it.

Usually camcorders do have in built microphone so that you can record sound as well as video simultaneously, whereas digital cameras are meant for high quality pictures , rather than videos.

So if you want to record good quality video along with audio , I would recommend you to get a camcorder.

If you have a webcam and you want to record audio along with video , then you can easily do it by using the microphone which is to be inserted in the mic slot just besides the speaker's slot with a microphone icon near it.

All you need to do is select the video recording source as your webcam and audio recording source as your microphone and there you go , you have the recording with audio.

Hope this helps ...:)

When recording live music the tone quality fades in and out when the music gets loud/soft- How can I record a constant sound level without this fade/compresion. Thanks


Option 1:
Check your audio settings on your camcorder. You may have an option to zoom in on the sound or record sound all around you. Try switching between either of those and see if that helps.

Option 2:
Add an external microphone

Option 3:
Try to muffle (lightly cover up) your onboard mic to keep the loud sounds from auto adjusting the volume.

Everthing seems to work, except the camera will not record.


Assume you have Sony DCR-HC20 camcorder and it does not show you live view to record, I hope camcorder is playing back old recorded tapes perfectly with good quality picture on its LCD.
If it is true then your camcorder has ccd imager chip failure and ccd imager needs to be replace to get live view in LCD monitor.
Qualified camera tech will replace ccd imager chip.
Thanks.

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.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Camera stops recording video


When recording movies in the SHQ image quality mode, I am restricted to 15 seconds of recording time per movie. Why?
In SHQ mode, the FE-230 records movies with VGA resolution (640 x 480 pixels) and a frame rate of 30 frames per second. Recording this much data, this quickly, requires a large amount of camera memory and a very quick write time.
Olympus’ Type M+ and Type H xD-Picture Card media are high-speed cards and are able to process this volume of information with no loss in quality. Other commercially available media, including Type M and Standard type xD-Picture Card media, are not able to do so. For this reason, this model limits movie recording in SHQ mode to 15 seconds when using media other than Type M+ or Type H cards. The 15-second restriction guarantees that the camera will be able to process the data properly and produce a smooth, error-free movie during playback.
Keep in mind that there is no restriction on movie recording length, other than the capacity of the storage media, when recording in the HQ (320 x 240 pixels) mode.

I'm not sure if you are recording in SHQ or not. Try switching to HQ (press menu, then select image quality). It solved the problem for me. Btw I got the solution of the Olympus FAQ page on their website.

Sound Problem when recording


Your digital camera is not a professional recording device. A live gig, especially indoors, or if you're close to the stage, means very high decibels, and you need something more serious if you really want to hear it later. You should get a recording device that can tune to different sensitivities. My old mini disc was great for this before it died. You also need a decent mic. Better luck next time! who was performing btw?
