Yes you can.
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.

Dirt sounds like the problem. Extend, then clean with a moist washcloth with alcohol. If you have a can of compressed air, blow it gently into the joints. Good luck.

I'm using my Nikon coolpix 8700 to take photos of museum objects so the photos need to be of a fairly high standard, but the photos are coming out just slightly out of focus. Where am I going wrong? Thanks


If these are close up photos, the depth of field will be shallow. You need to raise the ISO to force the camera to close down the aperture and increase the depth of field. Also, the use of a tripod or monopod will greatly increase your chances of taking a sharp picture.

Display will not turn on. Battery is fully


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first (check that the voltage is correct with a volt meter) but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.


Anything is fixable but it is more "is it cost effective"

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you
