Thanks for taking the time to reply. Smiley Happy On my camera, when in video mode (the one after "on" on the main body of the camera, then with the exposure set to "automatic"), when I hit the menu button I get a screen that shows 8 little icons along the top. Scrolling through them, the first three are red, the next two are blue, and the last three are yellow. When I get to "sound recording", it's in the third red menu, and the only options are "On and "Off". Is it possible this is a different version of the same camera?
