Hi,

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.

Rajesh

I just tried mine on auto mode and it recorded a video when I pressed the red button.

Apparently, if you have assigned a function to the Movie Button, it only start recording in movie-related modes.
- go to page 100 of the pdf user guide and then to other applicable sections.
- clear any function assigned to the Movie Button and test again.

I do not have the camera, I just checked the manual for a hint.
Good luck.

I use my G7X and it starts video recording whenever I press the movie button. You must have some conflicting config.
