View Full Version : S6000FD/S6500FD: Clicking noise in movies

I noticed that all my movies captured with my new s6500fd has a very rapid clicking noise which occurs at seemingly random points in a movie (sometimes all throughout), do any of you experience this as well? It's not that bad but it's loud enough to be distracting. I've uploaded a a short mp4 clip (I've converted it from the original avi for faster upload) which is of a woodpecker - very shaky video, zoomed in at 300mm - the clicking noise almost seems like the bird pecking away but it's not, it's in all my videos!

Any s6000/6500 owners out there with this problem too?

P/S Granted this isn't a vid cam but I do like to use it occasionally for short clips of what I'm shooting every now and then.

I believe the clicking noise is the autofocus motor, as the camera has to continuously refocus on moving subjects.

flippedgazelle, so you experience it in your videos too? If it's the motor then I guess I have nothing to worry about. Thanks for the reply!
