I thought i found the perfect camera, the t500 records some of the best 720p movies out there for a point and shoot camera, has 5x zoom and a somewhat wide angle lens, what possible flaw might it have? The over sensitive mic.
Once you have this camera strapped to a mount in your car and start driving, the mic picks up all the little rattles from inside the camera. Since the main reason i bought this camera was to do in-car recording this drove me nuts(no pun intended).
Simply shaking the camera near your ear you could hear some of the rattling, if you don't have it mounted in your car or shake it everything is fine.
Luckily i managed to sell this camera and now i'll be waiting for the panasonic tz7, hopefully it wont have this "problem".

Here's a video of what im talking about. Dont mind the video quality, its been downsampled a couple times already.
