OK - AFTER LOSING 2 DAYS OF MY LIFE I GET THAT I CAN'T GET MY VIDEO BACK :((( BUT I NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHY SO IT DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN. I used canon dc 100 with TDK DVD-R disk which doesn't require initialization - only finalization. I recorded video - played it back IN camcorder, no problems - then finalized, but something (that's what I need to figure out why possibly occurred!!) something bad happened and deleted all video - it reads blank disk according to online recovery software, windows, a

When I use Video mode, the audio has a clicking sound that is audible in the video file. I believe it is the sound of the auto focus. The camera did not always make this sound. I have tried to have it repaired by Sony. they said the camera is supposed to be that ay. I know that is not the case since I have sample that I made without the audio glitch before the audio glistch started. Now it always happens. Is there any solution? Can anyone repair this?

The solution here is repair the autofocus sensor inside as that is a confirm on your findings that clicking in the sound is the autofocus making audible noises in the micro phone. What you need to do as I hate to say it is bring it to a local camera ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Digital Camera

Memory card I have an Olympus FE 220. I took a heap of photo's and when i went to view the photos it gave me the option to turn power off or format memory card. So I put the card into my lap top and it only gave me the option to format card. This has happened before. Does it have something to do with the battery getting low on the camera cause that is when it seems to happen.

I have a small white Flip-like video camera offered by Sharper Image. I believe it to be perhaps the first model of the 'U-video' line. This video camera was offered by the newer, taken over Sharper Image. I did not buy the little video camera at a Sharper Image store, but at a Stein Mart store. It cost me $40. I'm looking for the manual for it. I want to know how to reset the date so that the date is correct when I video record something. This is not the latest of the Sharper Image Flip-like

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well. But when I go back and review the image on the camera, or off the memory card via my computer the image is distorted. The best way I can describe it is as if the image appears that I took a photo off something on the tv, with a series of horizontal lines running across the image. The video capture seems to work fine though. Can you offer any sug

He said the camera was warm while using the video option. He quit using it, but was unable to get it to turn on. Is there something else we can try?
