Sounds to me like you bought it to take good VIDEO. Not good STILL images. You're right. Send it back and get a VIDEO camera.

No, that is the G1, which lacks video and the stopless aperture lens.

it is this one

Hards80 also said that the ticking can't be fixed by firmware. and damn! 1k? not gona be able to get it. I bought the HS10 because I asked around if i could manual focus while video recording and most of them said yes. Turns out to be wrong.

I want a camcorder that i could play with the depth of field

if your goal was to play with depth of field, you really didn't get the right tool to start with anyways regardless of the ticking sound.

you will want a DSLR with its bigger sensor. Check out Canon's 550D, it has full HD video, and you can manual focus during video (you will have to with kit lens anyways, the motor is noisy) and a stereo jack. There are currently no stepless aperture lenses, so you will want to set up everything in advance before shooting and focus manually.

i thought i got the right tool since they said i could manually focus. My budget is pretty much just like the HS10 price.

I guess better luck next time to me... Maybe HS20

The cam of choice would be the Casio EX-F1. 6 MP, okay, but otherwise pretty good. Made to be hybrid. Very good at video except no stabilization, and no switching between PAL and NTSC. The slomo video is much more smooth with that cam.
Because the cam has no wide angle of it's own, and with video the screen gets cropped even more, I would recommend getting the raynox FE180pro full-frame fish-eye convertor. It fits directly, and really is a brilliant addition to that cam.

Here's a few video's that I did with that cam:

http://vimeo.com/8970671 (fish-eye only on cockpit, and quite serious editing)

http://vimeo.com/1441400 (slowmotion part only)

The HS10 is a photocamera, and on that area much more pleasing to handle than the casio ExF1; But if you're looking for a hybrid; the Ex-F1 is the choice.
