There are two video recording resolution settings.
Videography features Microphone Mono
Resolutions 640 x 480; 30 fps; 35 sec, 320 x 240; 5 fps; 180 sec with audio



You need to go to the Mode selection and select the movie camera.

SOURCE: Horizontal lines on image

I had the same problem few months back!
the lines appeared when i took pics in low light conditions, then after a while i could see em in the all the pics (even when i clicked photos with flash or during daylight). I got it checked at a Nikno Service Center. Apparently the CCD chip was damaged and had to be replaced, they got it from another model cause Nikon doesn't manufacture 8700 anymore.
Cost me around 220 USD
hope it helps :-)

SOURCE: Problem with nikon coolpix 8700

Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.

SOURCE: Sir, how to pause nikon

You can't. You can stop the current shoot, and then start another one. You'll end up with two video clips, which can then be joined together using video editing software on a computer. Remember that the L20 isn't really a video camera, but a still camera with video features grafted on.

Having gone a month without a response, I assume using a card reader solved the problem.

Can you use Cyber-shot DSC-W300 Digital Camera as a webcam?


Hi,

DSC-W300 Sony digital still Camera is not supported for use as a Webcam. For video conference, use a dedicated Webcam or video camera that supports this function. You can use the MHS-PM1 AND MHS-CM1 Webbie HD MP4 Camera supports video conferencing.

Thanks for using FixYa.

What cable do I use to connect my Canon ZR800 to my MacBook Pro 13" to download the video? Thank you.


It is your USB cable you will use to transfer your videos from your camera. Connect your camera to your computer. Play the video. As the video begins to play you will select “capture” from the menu (depending on the application you are using to playback the video). Adobe Premiere and Ulead Visual Studio are very good for capturing/downloading videos from camera. The fact is video editing applications are perfect for capturing. Please note Downloading videos from camera is always achievable only by “capturing” and to capture a video you must play it back. You cannot download videos like mp3s by simply copying.

Un able to transfer video to laptop


Hey! I am not sure what camera you are using, but I know that usually camera videos are HD videos in MOD, AVCHD M2ts, etc formats. Therefore, if you wan to play your camera video on your PC, you need to turn these HD videos to common video fomart, if you are using windows media player, you can convert them to WMV or AVI format. I personally use this Wondershare HD Video Converter which helps me convert camera video into other videos for payback on PC or some other portable media players such iPod, iPhone etc. You can have free try of this HD Video Converter at it's official web.
Hope that helps.

Use a digital camera like a webcam


step 1 Check the manual of your digital camera to see if it can be used as a webcam. Many digital cameras have this functionality and even come with webcam software. If your camera didn't come with webcam software, use a third party web cam application such as SarmSoft WebCam. Find SarmSoft WebCam at ShareUp.com.
Step 2 Plug your digital camera's power adapter into the camera. Some won't function as a webcam unless they are plugged into A/C power. Even if your digital camera functions as a webcam while on batteries, A/C power saves your batteries and prevents your camera from shutting off in the middle of a broadcast.
Step 3 Connect a video cable into your digital camera's video "out" port. Your camera likely came with a cable made for connecting it to a to a video source. Plug the other end of the video cable into your video card's video "in" port.
Step 4 Set up your camera as close to your monitor as possible. This allows better face to face communication.
Step 5 Position yourself about 2 to 3 feet away from your digital camera. Most digital camera's focus best at this distance when used as a webcam.
Step 6 Use a separate microphone if your digital camera doesn't transmit sound when used as a webcam. Plug the microphone into the microphone jack of your sound card

Windows error " Please turn on the camera"


Your lap top should have the necessary programming already installed.The cam is normally used in video,film or video chat format.When you have a video link on MSN MESSENGER,you can click on the video call to a contact,and even though they have no camera,they will get a video picture link of you from your camera but you will only be able to talk to each other,as you will get no picture as they have no camera.Get windows live messenger 8.5 and use the video link with your contacts.
