Hi I am new to this Forum. I just received a Sanyo CG-65 from Amazon yesterday and this morning I used it for the first time to shoot a short videoclip. When I played it back on my PC, I heard some kind of clicking noise. The periodically clicking noise persisted even though I was not zooming. I changed a different faster SD card but got the same results (I don't think the card matters). Also, I actually listened to the CG-65 when I was using it; I heard the noise actually came from the device (perhaps when it was autofocusing.

I do not know whether the CG-65 I just received is actually a defective one so that I should return it, or the noise is actually an "inherent" part of the device so that I have to make a "leave it or take it" decison.

I posted my first videoclip here so that you guys can help me to determine whether it is a defective noise or an inherent noise. The noise came out from the beginning and continued intermittently throughout. The only part that I zoomed was shooting my printer. It was shot at a low light condition so please do not be alarmed if it is a bit too grainy. What concerns me is the clicking noise.

Hi pragnanzer, that sounds like the auto-focus motor, it's normal to hear it like that in quiet environments. With background sounds, like people talking, or outdoor environment sounds you will hear it a lot less or not at all. The recordingvolume auto adjusts, so when it's quiet the audio is more sensitive, when the environment is louder, the audio won't pick it up little sounds like the focus motor. Also, you can assign a preset to the thumbstick to lock auto-focus at any point, or set the focus manually, that will stop all focus motor noise.

Hi Caelum, I testedthe CG-65in open area and I agreed with your assessment of the noise problem. By the way, itwas due to youropinion and advicein this forum that I bought this video-camera, and it is also due to your advice that I will keep it as well. Please keep up your good advice in this forum.
