Default s230 and sound


I know this may sound like a dumbass question to ask but can the S230 record sound? I don't know this camera at all but if it can, are you sure the camera hasn't been damaged or how are you connecting it to the computer? The audio track should be recorded with the moving images but the sound quality on this and other cameras is really bad. You have to stand really near to the subject aswell.

Default Sound with movies only

I'm pretty sure that the S230 will only record sounds when in *movie* mode. It records them in WAV format and you can play them back on your TV or computer. With still photos, I don't think there is any way to attach sound to the photos. There is a Mic on the camera, but no controls to turn it on or off. Its on during movies, and off the rest of the time. At least, in quite a bit of looking, thats all I have been able to find.

Open the file with quicktime. The sound doesn't work for me, if I use Windows Media Player. (This is going by the sample provided in the Canon s230 review by Steves DigiCams) I don't have the cam yet...
