pinholecamera: Does anyone know definitively if there is a way to record only AUDIO with the mic? My current Cannon has this great feature and I hate to lose it. Thanks!

Looking at the specs again, that little camera (S2 IS) even has image stabilization in movie mode. As an engineer, I suppose I don't understand the marketing decisions for feature inclusion/exclusion in new cameras.

Cannon S2 IS is my current camera, besides my cell phone. Surprisingly, it actually takes great stereo recordings. It has been hard to find a replacement after all these years given its portability, manual controls and advanced features, EVF, rotating LCD, and close macro focusing (object can touch the lens).

True, I do sometimes use my cell phone for audio recording as well, but my app only uses one MIC so it creates mono, not stereo, recordings.

It is looking like I may have to go with an external audio recorder...bummer.

No annotation, often I just want to get sound clips from my environment. This leaves me with two options. 1. Take a video and strip off the audio or 2. Carry around an audio recording device.

This camera seems to have pretty much everything else, too bad it is missing this feature.
