Motor noise on Canon MV530i Digi Camcorder?

Post by lumpy »

Hi,

Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this but here goes...

My father just bought the Canon MV530i digital camcorder which I must admit is a very smart bit of kit, picture is excellent and the 18x optical zoom is the dogs dangly bits!
I noticed however that the motor is quite noisy and checking a couple of videos that we transferred to the PC, you can actually hear the motor noise of the camera on the video at very quiet moments. Since then I found a couple of reviews that mentioned it but I wondered if there were any other MV530i owners out there and how they found the camera, the noise issue and in general?

Thanks!
