    HI

    My camileo x-100 is always focusing.
    Stays in focus then defocus then stays in focus and so on, doesn't matter if is wide shot or close with or without macro on.

    Because that process de image is always "mooving" and in the sound track is recorded a series of "claps".

    How can I solve this?

    Hello

    This issue with focusing is strange and definitely not normal. I recommend you to visit your dealer and exchange the cam. Bring it back and take other one.

    This strange sound is not known to me but it can happen if the mic is set to max level.
    Anyway, try to exchange the cam with new one.

    Is there any firmware that can fix this problem? It seems that this is problem with all x100 models..

    Considering this problem has been reported 3 months ago, has toshiba looked at it yet?
    Im about to buy the X100, but this seems pretymuch a dealbreaker.

    I´m still waiting for an answer from Toshiba.

    I´ve got the camera replaced for another one by the dealer, but it still makes the same noise.

    I think you misunderstood something…
    This is a user to user forum… you will not meet any nobody from Toshiba here in forum.
    If you have some problems with the hardware, the Toshiba authorized service partner is your first contact person…

    Regarding firmware update;
    If there is an firmware update then it should be published on the Toshiba driver page:
    http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

    Here you have to choose Options -> Digital imaging -> Digital video cameras

    If there is nothing, then this means that such firmware does not exists!

    I think focuses on all x100 are strange..
    I partially solve this problem with service menu(Lens Calibration) discussed on Russian page (first video illustrate what can do)

    Perhaps this may be useful to some.

    I have made a brief tutorial for calibrating some of the features of the Toshiba Camileo x100. It also appears to apply to similar cameras.
