When transferring movies to the computer, the format is a digital format (mjpg), and will play on the computer using QuickTime. If you want to play your movies directly from the camera to a television, you will need to select either NTSC or PAL in the menu system on the camera. Go to this link and type "ntsc or pal movie" in the search window in the center of the screen and click on the Search button. Select the first answer (When connected to a television. . .) and you will find instructions on how to do this.

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,

I have been trying to transfer my video from my Lumix DMC-ZS7 to my pc. Every time I get the same message: Removed from the items to be acquired because AVCHD/AVCHD Lite videos with different TV...


Hello, First of all, which region do you live in? Basicaly, PAL and NTSC are standards for TVs that differ depending on the region of the world. The American continent is NTSC, Europe is PAL, and i'm not quite sure about the specifics of every region, but this information should be easy to obtain. You can go in the config section of your camera and switch the video settings to PAL or NTSC, depending on which you need.
As for your videos, which method are you using to copy your files to your computer? I've got this same camera and the simplest way (as for any camera) is to insert the SD card in your laptop and copy-paste the files where you want them to be. If you don't have a SD card slot, you can get your hands on a USB adapter, or simply try using the provided camera to USB cable and copy the files from the same method, if it allows you to access your files directly.
I hope it helps! Have a nice day!

Hi. I was mis-sold over the internet the DMC ZS3 camera instead of the TZ7 and now i cant video in PAL HD as the ZS3 is NTSC and my computer cant recognise the video footage when I try to download it from...


You might be able to flash over the ZS3 to TZ7, but that would be an expensive gamble.Nor would I trust anyone other than Panasonic to tell me what I could or couldn't do as far as this question is concerned - unless I was interested in taking the risk.

The TZ7 limits the length of the video that can be recorded to something on the order of 3 or 4 minutes - whereas the ZS3 is limited only by the size of the SDHC card. I believe it had to due with the tax collect for a "video camera" as opposed to the still camera that can record "clips" instead of movies. Tha, and of course the NTSC / PAL differences and who knows whatelese that isn't mentioned (but I suspect very little else actually).

Contact Panasonic Consumer Product Support for the best answer you can hope for. I hope this helped - and good luck!

Trying to play off-camera stored video, when replaced onto SD card in camera


Did you change the file name on the original video? Are you able to put the video back onto the camera? If you changed the file name, you can't put it back onto the camera. It also needs to be in AVI format which is the video format that the camera records in.

Hope this helps!

Videos and photos not all readable by computer when taken on Canon PowerShot A640


You will likely need to use the software that came with the Canon powershot vs. just trying to download via the default (scanner and camera wizard for example) program. If you are doing this already, then I don't know why it is not transferring them over to the computer properly, but if you are not using the Canon Zoombrowser software, you should make sure you load the cd that came with it.

Hope this helps!

Canon SD 700 IS Movie Sound Issue


This is because of low light and low frame rates in the camera. It records the sound on time but the picture delays. In the camera's video menu, choose a higher frame rate to help this a little. Honestly though, If you want to shoot better video get a video camera.

Dimage E40 TV picture stability


In black and white? If there is a red and yellow, white and yellow, or red white and yellow on the tv end make sure the colors are matched correctly. Try on channel 3. Try on another tv. Is the camera from a foreign country? (Might be PAL, not NTSC.) If so, there should region menu in the camera to change this. For video, you have to shoot it in the mode of the TV you want to watch it on. North American TV's are NTSC, so shoot with the camera in that mode. If you shoot in PAL mode, a north american TV will show a black and white rolling picture. Just about everywhere else in the world is some version of PAL.
