    The film starts to record and shuts down after around 2 minutes. The camera stays on. I'm wondering if it's associated with warning about camera shake.
    On a tripod it's OK.

Hi Doug,
You are right in identifying the cause of the pre-mature shut-down of the camera during video recording. Battery saving features (auto-shut down) detect the camera as idle while you are recording. you could do two things to avoid this;
1. A short term practice is to manipulate the camera to stay on by using the zoom button, taking a snap-shot or anything like that from time-to-time, before the 2 minutes is up. This will keep the camera awake long enough for you to record a good length of video.
2. The second and permanent option is to program the camera - just as you mentioned. You can do that by opening the menu and under camera setting , scroll down till you find the auto-power save. Change the time to your preference

Please note: You have to switch off your camera as soon as practicable while the auto-switch-off time is set at a bigger value to conserve the battery. otherwise the battery will be drained quicker than you imagine.

I hope this helps.

To take movie


You can take a movie up to 3 minutes. In shooting menus 1 or 2, go to "Menu", then "Continuous". Scroll down the Continuous screen to get to page 2, then select "Movie". Select your mode and click on that and you should be all set.

Canon camera shuts off while filming a movie


Wow!...you get 35 min. of uninterrupted movie on a point-and-shoot camera before it shuts off and you're complaining? No Hollywood director would ever shoot that much without stopping....even Alfred Hitchcock never went that far! After your camera shuts down, can you start it up again and resume another movie session?

My sony Handycam DCR-DVD805 is not working. On pressing reset it works for 2-3 minutes and again shuts down. What may be the problem? Can it be set right at home or needs repair.


The cameras that use DVD disks have a 89% break down rate, the media simply is not made for things we carry around like cameras, just grab a camera with tape that records your great movie films, the DVD idea is a sales idea from camera makers to grab your money, but the media simply does not seem to work mostly on cameras.

Camera shuts down when 'zoom lens' is used.


Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.

3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.

5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

My kodak easyshare V1253 Powers up, then shuts off


You have damaged your lens. If the camera can not move the lens it goes through a built in diagnostics test and shuts down. Beyond repair as cost to replace is beyond the value of your camera.
