dimage Z1, fix for sound lagging in video?
I contacted Minolta regarding the problem of sound lagging in video mode on the Z1, and being able to hear the focus motor. They deftly ignored my question about the focus motor (I personally think one ought to be able to lock focus during video if desired; sometimes I know I want to focus at a constant distance for a long time (i.e., at a concert)).
On the other hand, they said that using a higher speed SD card fixes the video/audio sync issues. Does anyone know if this is true? The only card I used was the one that came with the camera; it seems odd that they would include a card that was too slow for the camera's abilties (then again, it doesn't seem odd at all when one considers the usual practice of including the smallest and cheapest memory card they can get away with)
