I took a video on my Canon Power Shot SD1100 IS, I didn't realize it was in Time lapse mode. Is there a program I can use to switch it to standard mode once it's been downloaded onto my...

No. Time lapse takes one picture every whatever interval you set. For example, one picture every 10 seconds. Nothing is recorded for the 9 seconds inbetween so no software program can make up what was supposed to be there.

Check your camera settings in movie mode for the correct settings for time lapse, normal, slow motion and fast motion. A slow recording memory card will not produce your problem but will take longer to save the file. If you shot the movie in PAL and played it on an NTSC TV, the picture would be in black and white with no sound and vice versa. ALWAYS format the memory card in the camera, never on a PC

I accidently recorded some video using time lapse, is there any way I can restore it to the standard setting?

Sorry, no. The video you recorded is the video you get. There is no way to recreate the scene between the recorded frames.

Can i take movies with my canon powershot SD1100SI

Yes. Select the Movie mode (movie camera on tripod icon). Press the FUNC/SET button to select options, then press FUNC/SET again. Press the shutter release button to start recording, press the shutter button again to stop recording.

For full details, refer to the section "Movie Shooting" in the manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

I recorded movie accidently in time lapse mode which is playing it in fast forward mode. I need to convert it back to normal mode. Is there a way to do this? I am using Cannon SD1100

Sorry, it can't be done. The time-lapse mode records fewer images than normal video. Imagine taking one picture every hour out your window. From this collection of pictures you can't see anything that went on between the pictures. It's the same thing here.

Viewing my videos

i have good and bad news for you guys. the bad news is that you'll never beable to see those videos in the normal time frame again. but the good news is that there's nothing wrong with your camera. try turning the sd1100 on again in video mode. then press on the function/set button. now just set the capture mode back to standard. you've had it in time lapse. if this doesnt help, then iono.... lol good luck!

This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for future recording.
