Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-M1 Digital Camera

Making movies smaller

What is a good way of shooting movies with the camera, and then making them portable enough for email, or posting? The video quality is great, but really overkill for email. I'd like to keep frames per second and audio clean, just downsize the video size, or compress it more (even at the expense of more artifacts) Ideas?

Re: Making movies smaller

1. Convert video to *.avi (DV Format) 2. Use Adobe Premiere, convert to Quicktime, or Mpeg I or II, or Real Media. 3. or try Windows Media Encoder (Which is free.) 4. or MPEG4 encoding used for Sony's PSP. To make files smaller You can try 1. Reduce frame rate; 2. Reduce audio bit rate to 128 or 96kbps 3. Reduce frame size, e.g. 320x240 4. Use a mpeg4 encoder

Convert mov movies wmv


Most digital cameras are made to shoot pictures and lots can shoot video too. But cameras are not made to view videos or pictures, not shot with that camera. So no use sending videos to your camera, because It will be very difficult to find a converter, that is capable of making a video that will fit in and can be played on your BenQ. If you want to convert videos, try this on your PC with special software. You can get converter software for free on he net. Like Freemake Video Converter of VLC.

I'd like to put Canon EOS 7D video to iPad?


Like the 5D Mark II the 7D shoots H.264 codec. This must be compressed to a smaller size for iPad syncing or converted to a friendly codec for iMovie.

For iPad,

1. Transfer .MOV files to your Mac via USB.

2. Use Canon MOV Compressor to slow the 60fps down to 24 using frame controls.

3. Sync converted movies to iPad via iTunes

For iMovie,

Just convert Canon 7D to AIC for iMovie editing. iMovie supported best video format is AIC Codec MOV format, you can edit video with this format in iMovie smoothly without rendering,

Sound not recorded during movie making


Sony DSC-S700 can record voice in video clips but you can listen sound of clip by exporting it to computer and playback there.
Camera has no built-in speaker to playback sound.

No sound to video


I had this problem too, so I looked into it and found the following:
"The FE-210 offers Movie mode without sound, which enables users to create short movies with small files sizes, that can be easily emailed to family and friends." from http://www.steves-digicams.com/2007_reviews/fe210.html

So basically, it's not a problem with our cameras - it never recorded sound anyway. Disappointing, huh?

Lumix movie viewing


My guess the full, not free, version of QuickTime would do this for you. Check it out by going to their website and review full version capability. A google search of 'quicktime DVD movie making' might get you advice from actual users.

You can save money if you buy an earlier used version on Ebay that still has DVD movie making and that will work with your Win OS version.

Why can't MVC-CD400 zoom in and out when video


On p. 100 in the manual it states that the zoom does not work when shooting a movie with the cd400 only. The cd400 has quite a few more features,for example the higher resolution and the Carl Zeiss lens, compared to the cd250, thereby justifying the higher price. It has more functions as a still digital camera, more manual settings, etc., so I guess you have to sacrifice that one function. No digital still camera will replace a camcorder - the fact that you can record a movie as long as the cd allows is a lot better than most other still cameras. So you and your friend have the best of all worlds together, you just have to share! I have taken thousands of pictures with my cd400, and the picture quality and the cheap storage are great. Happy shooting!

The best situation to use each of the shooting modes


The shooting modes are described as follows: AUTO (Factory default setting) Auto mode is used for regular photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. Other functions, such as the flash mode and metering, can be adjusted manually. Portrait Portrait mode is suitable for taking a portrait-style picture of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Night scene Night scene mode is suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both your subject and the night background. SCENE Scene mode enables you to select one of the following scene shooting modes available in the menu. Landscape + Scene shooting Landscape + Scene shooting is suitable for taking pictures of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. This mode produces clear, sharp pictures with excellent detail, making it ideal for shooting natural scenery. Landscape + Portrait shooting Landscape + Portrait shooting is suitable for taking photos of both your subject and the background. The picture is taken with the background as well as the subject in the foreground in focus. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting settings QuickTime Movie Quicktime Movie mode lets you record movies. The focus and zoom are locked. If the distance to the subject changes, the focus may be compromised. Landscape Landscape mode is suitable for taking pictures of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Self-portrait Self-portrait mode enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens towards yourself, and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. The zoom is fixed in the wide position and cannot be changed. My Mode Enables you to make settings manually and register them in the mode dial's mode so you can call up your own shooting mode whenever you want. Program shooting (P) Program shooting allows you to shoot using an aperture and shutter speed that the camera sets. You can set the flash, white balance, or other functions manually. Aperture priority shooting (A) Aperture priority shooting allows you to set the aperture manually. The camera sets the shutter speed automatically. By decreasing the aperture value (F-number), the camera will focus within a smaller range, producing a picture with a blurred background. Increasing the value will let the camera focus over a wider range in the forward and backward directions, resulting in a picture in which
