Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Taking movies when taking movies, my camera shuts down after about 2 minutes. What's my problem. 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. It's an IXUS 950IS

HOW DO YOU EXTEND THE FILMING LENGHTH IN A fUJIFILM FINEPIX S3380 CAMERA


The S3380 is a still camera with limited video capabilities, not a true video camera. No matter how big the memory card, a single movie clip cannot exceed nine minutes.

This limitation is due to economics, not technical. In some countries video cameras are taxed at a higher rate than still cameras. A still camera that cannot record for ten minutes is considered to be a still camera, not a movie camera, and is thus taxed at the lower rate.

How often do you see something in a movie lasting ten minutes, shot continuously from the same viewpoint with the same camera? Usually movies are made by splicing together shorter clips.

If you really need to be able to film longer clips, like a family member performing in a play or a concert, then you need a true video camera.

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.

Sony DSC-HX400V


The DSC-HX400v is designed primarily as a still camera and is marketed as such. In some parts of the world video cameras are taxed at a higher rate than still cameras. A camera that cannot record videos longer than 30 minutes is not considered a "video camera" and thus is taxed at a lower rate.

When was the last time you saw a movie with a single scene longer than about ten minutes without any cutting, editing, or other changes?

The five-minute limit has nothing to do with the memory card or the video resolution. In some parts of the world video cameras are taxed at a higher rate than still cameras. Cameras that can only record videos up to five minutes in length are not considered video cameras and thus are taxed at the lower rate.

When was the last time you saw a movie or TV scene that was five minutes long without any cuts or breaks? It doesn't happen often and very few people find the five-minute limit restrictive.

Video quality is a very subjective thing. The quality is better than that of almost all compact still and video cameras. It's not as good as professional-quality video cameras. Video has a different "feel" from film --- but which is better?

Since the recording length doesn't depend on the resolution, I'd suggest you always record at the largest resolution. Videos can always be shrunk in size --- they can't be expanded.

When I take videos with my canon rebel, it stops recording after about 30 seconds. Do I have some settings set incorrectly?


If you are shooting video then you must have the Canon Digital Rebel T2i as the Rebel T2 is a film camera. Anyway I've checked through some data and your camera is capable of 29 minutes 59 seconds of video before shutting down due to heat. I would expect that your memory card is not a Class 6 or faster if it is then you may have forgotten to format the memory card to the camera it is being used in.

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?

I want to know how to pause my camera while filming


To pause the camera in the middle of filming, fully press the shutter at the top of the camera to the right, the recording will be paused. (i.e the shutter that you pressed while the camera is in recording mode, that enables recording while pressed fully. You press it, it will pause and when you press again, it starts recording). This is possible because the camera is already in recording mode.
