Sony DSC-HX5V - Audio Problem
Does anyone else own this camera or a similar model??
I bought a brand new DSC-HX5V recently and had it replaced due to the fact that the audio it's movies
produces makes various whistling and clicking sounds!
These sounds are amplified massively if you cover the microphone holes, which ironically is what a lot of
people say to do, with various materials, to obtain better audio quality by reducing wind noise.
Unfortunately the replacement camera shares the same audio problem.
I've posted a couple of videos here if you would be so kind enough to check them and see if it is the same
as on your HX5V or similar:
Anyway, I've looked at various other videos online and the problem doesn't seem too apparent on any of them,
I can't hear anyone talking about it on the internet. I've already tried all the video settings, different
memory cards etc. and nothing seems to change it.
If anyone has this camera or a similar model and can give me their opinion on the audio it'd be great! :)
Thanks a lot !
You've got two issues, the first is the noise when you zoom in and out. The second is the camera itself creaking as you hold it. This is really common and completely normal for this sort of camera. It's not a fault with the microphone, just a product of a very small mic which has to be very sensitive being stuck in a plastic box.
Fair enough then! Maybe i'll exchange it or get my money back then as my friend's Panasonic TZ-10 i tried today didn't seem as bad.
Thanks for the reply, Chris
It might not be as bad but it will still suffer with that problem. What you need is an external mic so you don't get the body noises of the camera.
The Panasonic is a better stills camera than the Sony though..
