Yes, this is normal on some still cameras that have video clip capability. I have an older Lumix that was quite high-end when new, and it has the same limitation.

Olympus FE-210 I dropped my Olympus FE-210 when it was on and the lens was out. Now, the camera still workes fine, but the lens will not close all the way. After I shut it off, it opens and closes as if trying to fix itslef, but tops after three tries. The zoom still works, but it makes a clicking noise as the lens adjusts. I wouldn't mind any of this, except that now I can't upload my pictures. Normally, when I hook up the USB, a screen comes up on the camera dispaying my options. Now when I ho

Olympus stylus zoom 140. Camera was great for about 2 years, pictures were great. My last two rolls of film developed with large, orange light streaks running vertically just to the right of center. Additionally, there were several "blobs" of orange light left of center. This occurred on 90% of the pictures, the remaining 10% were fine. Is this a light leak in the camera body? Is it worth trying to get Olympus to repair? Of course, the camera is now out of warrenty. Thanks for your time

My Canon Rebel has stopped importing pix properly, despite being quite new. It displays pictures ok, we get to Windows explorer to view them as thumbnails as normal(with 0 kb size!), which Windows cannot open or view, or drag or copy over. On the camera side I can zoom into the image on the LCD display. 2 memory cards and the same thing...

3040 Issues I just got a 3040 and had a question about a couple of things I noticed (I've never owned an Olympus digital camera). When the camera is powered up, the noise from the lens coming out sounds awful (like a grinding noise). Is this normal? It zooms in/out without any problems but it just sounds odd. It just doesn't sound smooth... Is a stuck pixel on the LCD enough of a reason to return it for a new one? The pictures do not show the stuck pixel but I am concerned that a new and e
