I just purchased a Canon G7X. The shop owner told me that the video record button works on any mode. Which means even when the dial is on Auto mode, I can record videos by pressing the red button. But it doesn't work for me that way. Only when I rotate the dial to the video recording mode, does the red button work. Maybe, thats how it is and the Canon shop guy told me the wrong thing. Or is there something wrong with my camera that the video record button doesn't work on any other mode other than when the dial is on Movie mode. I have inserted the card which I got free with this piece which is a Class 4 Sandisk card. Is that the reason? Should I use a Class 10 card?
Any help will be appreciated.
