    Hello

    I am happy with the photo side of the G7, but have found that when I play back recorded movies, there is a loud constant high pitched whistle on the audio.

    This happens with all settings except compact (probably because compact doesnt record with enough audio range for anything high pitched?)

    Does anyone else get this noise or has my camera got a fault? :confused:

    I doubt you'll be able to fix it, my friends all have these Nikon Coolpix cameras all from 2200s to L4s (pretty much all the Nikon Coolpix Point and Shoots) and they all make the same repetitive clicking noise throughout all the video.:mad:

    Point and shoots are horrible for videos, it's almost as bad as a camera phone taking a video. I know someone who has a G2 so I'll ask him about that when I see him later.

    thanks for the reply, the camera is still under warranty so I could send it back. I just found a vid on dpreview for the G7 and it doesnt have the same whistle so it could be this particular camera

    I would like to know if anyone else has it though
