Pentax Optio W30 review

Sound level is VERY LOW while recording video


Sound level is VERY LOW while recording video.
Also, if autofocus and/or optical zoom is ON during video recording, you can hear multiple clicks during all video clip and sound level is also very low (but sound level of clicks is HIGH).
This camera was bought as the second camera in addition to my SLR for video recording and everyday/everywhere use.

PENTAX says that it is NOT A LACK or DEFECT, it is a FEATURE of this model. ("High quality video with sound" by PENTAX!!!)

So i can't return this camera back in store and get my money back.

My previous cameras:
Nikon Coolpix 2500,
Canon PowerShot G5, Canon PowerShot S2 IS,
Canon PowerShot S3 IS,
Canon EOS 400D,
Canon EOS 40D
