ive been playing about with the video camera and lgs Audio Zoom and it just doesnt work, then i noticed we are missing a 3rd mic from the rear next to the camera, so basically the two mics either side (landscape view) are just acting as noise cancelling, how can LG advertise this as a feature for the lg802 when its clearly lacking the forward facing mic ?




AUDIO ZOOMING
Audio Zoom lets you zero in on a specific audio source by zooming in on your subject while recording video. Afterwards, you can hear it more clearly during playback.

This unique feature uses three stereo mics, which amplify sound from the specified angle and reduces the surrounding noise, so you can zoom in on the sounds you want to hear, and tune out those you donít.
